For its 4th International Symposium on the System of Radiological Protection, ICRP joined forces with the 2nd European Radiological Protection Research Week (ERPW), to collaborate closely with the five European research platforms: ALLIANCE, EURADOS, EURAMED, MELODI, and NERIS. ICRP-ERPW 2017 attracted more than 500 participants from 42 countries.

ICRP 2017 consisted of five topical sessions on key issues in radiological protection: Advances in Dose Coefficients (with EURADOS); Effects, Risks, and Detriment at Low Dose and Low Dose-Rate (with MELODI); Advanced Radiotherapy (with EURAMED); Post-Accident Recovery (with NERIS); and, Integrated Protection of People and the Environment (with ALLIANCE).

The programme book and ICRP 2017 presentations are available below, and ICRP 2017 proceedings will be published in the Annals of the ICRP. Information from the ERPW sessions will be available through the websites of the European platforms:

The biennial joint meetings of the ICRP Main Commission and four Committees were held in conjunction with ICRP 2017. Summary reports from each will be available here as they become available.


ICRP 2017 and the 2nd ERPW would not have been possible without the generosity of the host, IRSN, and the many organisations providing financial support.

The 5th International Symposium on the System of Radiological Protection will be held in Adelaide, Australia, November 19-21, 2019, hosted by the Australasian Radiation Protection Society(ARPS) and Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency(ARPANSA).
