Announcing International Conference on Recovery After Nuclear Accidents




The International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP), in association with several Japanese, International, and other organisations (to be announced in the coming months) will host an International Conference on Recovery After Nuclear Accidents in late 2020, titled Radiological Protection Lessons from Fukushima and Beyond.


The objective of this conference is to share experiences and lessons related to radiological protection aspects of recovery from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear accident, the Chernobyl accident, and other events, to improve international understanding of the current state of recovery in Japan, consider strategies that may accelerate recovery, and improve preparedness for recovery from possible future major nuclear accidents.


From 30 November to 4 December 2020 in the Coastal Region in Fukushima Prefecture, Japan, attendees will experience 3 days of presentations, panel discussions, posters, and displays, as well as have an opportunity to participate in two days of field visits. All are welcome to join any session, space permitting, but a special public information session is planned for non-specialists.


The site visits will include an Interim Storage Facility, Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) technical facilities, etc., and other areas where recovery is taking place.


More details will be provided when registration opens in May 2020. Registration will be free, on a first-come, first-serve basis. As there will be limited space, registrants will be asked to confirm their participation leading up to the conference to ensure maximum participation. A waitlist will be maintained once the spaces are full.


Those interested in attending should subscribe to the conference via ICRP’s website. Inquiries for further information can be directed to Hiroki Fujita, ICRP Assistant Scientific Secretary.
