Welcome to the 17th International Congress for Radiation Research

The 17th International Congress for Radiation Research (ICRR) will be held at the Société du Palais des congrès de Montréal in Montréal, Canada, on August 27-30, 2023.

Every 4 years, ICRR brings together brilliant, passionate scientists from Research Societies around the globe. This year, the meeting will be combined with the 69th Annual Meeting of the Radiation Research Society (RRS). This international Congress will allow researchers in the diverse radiation science disciplines to showcase and discuss their findings, stimulate collaboration on new research topics and promote the multidisciplinary nature of our field. Members of the Program Committee have assembled an outstanding scientific program, including world-class plenary speakers, a debate session, and 5 parallel interdisciplinary tracks for symposia and topical reviews covering the state-of-the-art in radiological sciences. 

Latest scientific data will be presented with each symposium featuring two presentations by renowned experts in the field and several speakers selected from the best submitted abstracts with over half of the scientific speakers selected from abstracts. In addition, we will have 8 interactive poster sessions to present your work, learn and network. The program would not be complete without social activities around the scientific program, including a final night banquet where we all come together to celebrate the presented science and awardees of various organizations. The historical city of Montreal will host this event, offering the flair of a lively city and an abundance of cultural activities around the congress. The meeting venue is located at the heart of Montreal with access to entertainment, shopping, hotels, and more.

Please consider including the ICRR and Montreal in your conference plans this year and to contribute your latest research to make this a truly memorable, friendly, and interactive meeting at the forefront of radiation sciences.

Members of the Program Committee have assembled an outstanding scientific program highlighting the state-of-the-art in radiation sciences,
with particular emphasis this year on:

  • Mechanism in Radiation Effects
  • High LET Radiation
  • Emerging Therapy Approaches
  • Low Dose - Environment - Radiation Protection - Epidemiology
  • New Applications in Omics - Big Data - AI

These topics will be focused on throughout ICRR 2023's 4 Plenary Lectures, 30 Symposia, 15 Topical Reviews, 4 or more Award Lectures and a Debate session.

We look forward to welcoming the worldwide radiation research community to Montréal for ICRR 2023!
