IAEA/WHO International Conference on "Low Doses of Ionizing Radiation: Biological Effects and Regulatory Control"

A major IAEA/WHO International Conference on "Low Doses of Ionizing Radiation: Biological Effects and Regulatory Control" was held in November 1997 in Seville, Spain, which attracted over 500 participants and 25 observers from 65 countries.

The conference confirmed the risk estimates of UNSCEAR (1994) and the estimates of detriment of ICRP (1991), and concluded that the assumptions underlying radiation protection are valid and that the use of ionizing radiation can be well controlled. The Conference Programme Committee had accepted 176 concise contributed papers for consideration at the Conference, which were published by the IAEA shortly before the Conference. Copies of that publication (IAEA-TECDOC-976, November 1997) are available from the IAEA at no charge. The invited special reports, keynote papers, summaries of discussions, session summaries and addresses presented at the opening and closing of the Conference were published by the IAEA in 1998 in the form of priced Proceedings.
