SCOPE OF THE CONFERENCE
RadChem 2018 aims at maintaining the almost 60 year tradition of this conference series organised in the Czech Republic (or formerly in Czechoslovakia). We strive to continue in the tradition of organising a fruitful and well attended platform for contacts between experts working in both basic and applied research in all aspects of nuclear- and radiochemistry.
The scope of the 18th Radiochemical Conference will cover most topics of the former meetings of this series including, but not limited to, chemistry of radioactive elements, radioanalytical methods, radiochemical separation methods and speciation techniques, environmental radioactivity (both natural and artificial), radioecology, application of radionuclides and ionising radiation in research and technology, radiation chemistry, chemistry of the nuclear fuel cycle including the chemical problems in nuclear waste treatment and disposal, or education and training. We are looking forward to further expansion of the session dealing with nuclear methods in medicine and radiopharmaceutical chemistry that has been very successful on the recent conferences.
The conference is organised on behalf of the Division of Nuclear and Radiochemistry of the European Association for Chemical and Molecular Sciences, which is also one of the conference sponsors, as a part of the series of general European radiochemical conferences organized every other year. Co-operation with the International Atomic Energy Agency and support by IUPAC are under negotiation.
ROUND TABLE DISCUSSIONS
Having a good experience with this type of exchange of ideas gained during the previous conferences, we would like to offer space for these activities also at this conference. The suggestions of the round table discussion topics are welcome at the address of the Conference Secretariat.
