Abstract submissions will be reviewed for poster presentations. The abstract size is limited to 2000 characters (not including spaces). To ensure that this size is met, please prepare your abstract as a Word document first and then submit as a PDF document at radres.org.
You will have the option to submit to either "Poster Session Only" or "Oral Presentation" spot. You will need to select the category that is most relevant to your work. Please note, if your poster is not selected for an "Oral Presentation," it will automatically be considered for the Poster Session only and you will be notified.
Be sure to include the following information: Title, Author Block, Submission Category and Abstract Content. Be sure your abstract is accurate before you complete the submission and retain the control number you receive upon confirmation.
All presentations must be scientific in nature and without inclusion of commercial messages or inappropriate references to specific products, services or commercial concerns. The title should be bold and in lowercase letters with only the first word capitalized unless it is normally capitalized.
EXAMPLE: Temperature dependence of ionizing radiation effect on dry preparations of bacterial DNA
The body of the abstract should be single-spaced. Tables, graphs and structural formulae may not be included, although simple mathematical formulae are acceptable.
As much as possible, abstracts will be placed within the following categories:
|AI in Radiation Therapy||Animal Models||Biodosimetry||Cellular Effects||Clinical Trials & Correlative Studies|
|Complex DNA Damage Repair||DNA Damage||DNA Damage Response||DNA Repair||Early Detection|
|Experimental Therapeutics||Hypoxia||Hypoxia Modifiers||Intercellular Signalling/Bystander Effects||Low Dose Epidemiological Studies|
|Low Dose Radiation Protection||Low Dose Radiobiology||Mathematical Biology||Modelling Radiation Long-Term Effects||Molecular Radiation Therapy|
|Mutagenesis/Mutation||Normal Tissue Effects||Nuclear Waste Management||Particle Radiotherapy||
Phantoms in Radiation Research
|Radiation Carcinogenesis||Radiation Emergency Management||Radiation Sensitizers||Radiation Therapy Modalities: FLASH & non-FLASH||Radioecology|
|Radiotherapy Research||Tumour Radiosensitivity||Biology||Epidemiology||Medicine|
|Radiation Chemistry||Radiation Physics||Other|
Posters are now digital! Each presenter will be sent instructions on how to upload a PDF version of their poster as well as an option video presentation. Each PDF poster file should include a heading with the title and author(s) using lettering at least 22 mm (1”) high. The abstract should be included as part of the poster presentation.
An Abstract PDF will be emailed to registered attendees approximately 2-weeks prior to the meeting. In addition, content will be available via the meeting website.

Abstract Presenter Registration Deadline
All abstracts are reviewed by a committee, blindly, and scored based on quality and relevance to the topic.
All abstracts to be presented at RRS’s Annual Meeting are embargoed until the date and time of scientific presentation. The embargo policy applies to all abstracts regardless of whether information is obtained from another source.
Embargo violations by media professionals may result in suspension of credentials at the RRS Annual Meeting as well as future meetings and may also impact the ability to receive advance media materials for future meetings. Embargo violations by abstract authors and/or sponsors may result in removal of the abstract from the scientific program. Abstract authors are responsible for notifying financial and other sponsors about this embargo policy.
Questions about the embargo policy may be directed to RRS Association Manager, Audrey Rinehart.
The full text of the abstracts selected for oral and poster presentation will be available online at the start of RRS's Annual Meeting.
