Scientific Programme

In addition to the discussions of the most recent experimental data and theoretical principles in all areas related to nuclear and radiochemistry, the Symposium will also focus on the future frontiers of research in the field. The scientific programme will consist of a series of invited plenary and keynote lectures followed by presentations of invited and contributed papers in oral and poster sessions. The scientific programme of the symposium has been developed in consultation with the APSORC-IC. The major topics of the symposium include:

1. Nuclear reactions (including fission), nuclear decay/structure, and radioactive isotope beams.
2. Sciences of actinide, heavy and superheavy elements.
3. Nuclear analytical techniques using neutrons, ions, X-rays, synchrotron radiation, etc.
4. Applications of nuclear & radiochemical techniques in life sciences; nanomaterial sciences, environmental sciences, archaeological sciences, geo- and cosmo-sciences, isotopic battery, etc.
5. Nuclear probes in new material sciences: Mössbauer, perturbed angular correlations, positron annihilation, etc.
6. Radiopharmaceutical chemistry (including Tc chemistry) & radioisotope production.
7. Nuclear energy chemistry, including fuel reprocessing, nuclear reactor chemistry, uranium conversion, waste management and disposal, etc.
8. Environmental radiochemistry (including nuclides migration) and radioecology.
9. Radiochemical separation methods and chemical speciation; radiation dosimetry and metrology.
10. Issues on education of nuclear & radiochemistry.
