Other Conference Options

There are other ways students can participate in the conference. Anyone wishing to submit a poster is welcome to do so. If unable to attend the conference in person, posters can also be sent to the local conference committee for posting at the site.

Students are also encouraged to submit abstracts for a presentation at the conference. More details on abstract and poster submission can be found under the “Presenters” section of the conference website.

Even if you do not have a paper or poster to submit, students are strongly encouraged to attend the conference as a delegate. It is an excellent opportunity to network and meet other professionals in the radiation sciences. The conference material is always interesting and the social events are a great time. Students are offered a discount on registration.

If you have any other questions about the conference, send an email to We hope to see you there!
