In 1998 the series of EPRBioDose International Conferences was created by extending the International Symposium on EPR Dosimetry and Applications with the International Conference on Biodosimetry. The core applications of EPR dating, reference-, transfer- and quality assurance-dosimetry in radiation processing and medicine were broadened by inclusion of retrospective EPR dosimetry for applications in epidemiology and radiation accidents. In 2006 the scope was further widened by cytogenetic dose reconstruction and dosimetry for radiological emergency response.
An effort will be made to keep a balance between all core applications, basic research applied research and expertise. This specific conference will include EPR and cytogenetic dosimetry and their applications for the sharing of technological advances and a better understanding of physical, biophysical and biological processes in the field of ionizing radiation.
The EPRBioDose conference will be an event to promote the collaboration of scientists working in different fields of dosimetry and young scientists are encouraged to present their work and interact with other colleagues and experts.
At the first time the EPRBioDose conference is organized under auspices of the International Association of Biological and EPR Radiation Dosimetry (IABERD). The aim of the IABERD is to sustain cooperation over time between scientists working in the various aspects of EPR dosimetry, EPR dating and biodosimetry, by providing a common framework for the organization of EPRBioDose conferences.
Dosimetry for medical examinations
Dosimetry in mass casualties
Dosimetry for Fukushima accident
Gene expression response to radiation of different qualities
Identification of biomarkers for radiation
Micro- and nanodosimetry
New approaches in EPR- and Biological dosimetry
Normal tissue damage
Radiation sensitizers and radiation protector
Sponsors (Scientific messages, Facts & Visions)
Young investigator award
The format of the meeting in 2013 will be similar to that of previously well organized EPRBioDose meetings, with plenary talks in the mornings, various parallel sessions and poster presentations.
Experts in selected topics of interest will give invited lectures. In addition to these invited speakers, speakers will be also selected on the basis of their submitted abstracts.
Posters will be presented during the entire period of the meeting. An award will be given to three best posters that will be evaluated by the award commission.
The programme can be found via the link at the side of this page.
Information on the meeting will be regularly updated.

Registration and Payment
To register for the conference you have to follow the following steps:
- 1 - Fill in the Registration form.
- 2 - Print the pdf doc 'payment and room reservation'.
Fill in the form and send either the scanned version by email or the original completed form by regular post to the address of the secretariat of the conference venue Holiday Inn as mentioned on the form.
- 3 - As soon as your form for 'payment and room reservation' has been received by the secretariat of Holiday Inn, your registration will be confirmed by an email.
All participants are encouraged to submit an abstract and to give either an oral presentation or to present a poster.
In addition to invited speakers for plenary and parallel sessions, speakers will be also selected on the basis of their submitted abstracts. Participants will be notified not later than January 20, 2013 whether they are selected to give an oral presentation. In case you are not selected for an oral presentation you are expected to present a poster.
Please note: the deadline for abstract submission for oral or poster presentation is closed.
Format poster board: wide 1 meter; height 2 meter.
Poster will be presented during the entire meeting. As a poster presenter you may bring a few slides, not more than 5, in case the organizing committee invites you to present your data orally.
Young Scientist award
Young scientists can apply for a fellowship. A letter of motivation plus an abstract has to be sent to the scientific committee firstname.lastname@example.org
For people who need a visa for the Netherlands, please, contact the secretariat on time; the application can take several months! The secretariat will send you a formal invitation letter for the Embassy to get a visa to the Netherlands.
The conference proceedings will be published in an International peer-reviewed journal. The scientific committee of this conference will review the proceedings.
1. - Special issue: Radiation Protection Dosimetry
Publications (after being peer reviewed) are limited to only one paper by registered participant (corresponding to either an oral communication or a poster presentation). This registered participant should be the presenting author mentioned in the abstract. Papers presented during the conference by a co-author will not be accepted for publication.
Submission of Articles
Articles should comply with the Guidelines for authors of the Radiation Protection Dosimetry Journal. Detail information can be found at:. http://www.oxfordjournals.org/our_journals/rpd/for_authors/instructions.html
The manuscript can be submitted to Dr. Firouz Darroudi, the Chairman of the Organizing- and Scientific Committees of EPRBioDose 2013: email@example.com
The dead-line is extended and fixed to 20 July 2013.
2. - Special issue: Radiation and Environmental Biophysics
Authors will be informed by Dr. Firouz Darroudi and Dr. Albrecht Wieser.
In order to expand the knowledge and expertise, and to initiate harmonization in cytogenetic and physical Dosimetry research programs, for the first time, the organizers have initiated and generated a possibility for participants to follow a Two-day Pre-EPRBioDose Workshop on Cytogenetic BioDosimetry (theoretical / practical), as well as EPR (theoretical) techniques.
Those individuals having interest to participate at one of these workshops should fill in the form before November 1, 2012. Only a limited number of space is available, and reservation should be made in advance.
Registration is closed - no more places available

How to reach the meeting venue Holiday-Inn Leiden
Schiphol airport in Amsterdam (The Netherlands) is at approximately 25 km away from Leiden.
The conference venue Holiday-Inn hotel is located at the vicinity of Leiden central railway station. A shuttle bus (free of charge) from and to Holiday Inn hotel is available at Leiden central railway station on working days twice every hour.
Outside the indicated days/times you have to find your own way.
A taxi from Schiphol airport to HI costs about 75 euro and from Leiden central railway station to HI about 15 euro. Alternatively take public transport: the train from Schiphol to Leiden Central Station (~20 minutes) and from there the bus to Holiday Inn (~5 minutes). For the various options and time tables see http://journeyplanner.9292.nl/ Fill in for departure 'Schiphol, train station' and for destination 'Holiday Inn, Leiden'
