22.-26.08.2022 | Vienna

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is organizing the Second International Conference on Applications of Radiation Science and Technology (ICARST-2022).


The second IAEA International Conference on Applications of Radiation Science and Technology (ICARST-2022) will provide a unique opportunity to achieve the following specific objectives:

To review:

  • key developments in the applications of radiation science and technology as well as the ‘state of the science’ in this field;
  • national, regional and global initiatives for implementing proven industrial applications that lead to socio-economic benefits and strengthen capacity building in Member States; and


To serve as a composite platform through which industry and academia can foster new initiatives for ensuring the success of radiation technologies in meeting the emerging challenges in various areas.

Format and Topics

A series of plenary sessions will address the topics listed below, and the conference programme will include invited keynote speakers from academia and industry, giving oral presentations and participating in panel discussions. In addition, poster sessions will be organized to allow ample time for discussion and interaction among participants. Finally, a closing round table session will review the main conclusions drawn in the plenary sessions and will summarize recommendations for the future development of radiation sciences and technologies.

The scope of the conference is meant to cover, but is not limited to, the following topical areas:

  • Advanced radiation chemistry and trends in radiation science and technology
  • Emerging roles of radiation sciences and technology in environmental monitoring and protection
  • Dosimetry, standards and quality management of irradiation facilities
  • Advanced materials: from fundamentals to applications
  • New generation of radiation sources: gamma ray, electron beam, and X-ray
  • Alternative radiation sources based on accelerator technologies
  • Radiation sterilization and the microbiological qualification
  • Radiation & nuclear technology for characterization, imaging, and preservation of cultural heritage
  • Tracers and radiotracers applications for studying industrial and environmental processes, and flow visualisation
  • Sealed sources nucleonic control and measurement systems and imaging technologies
  • Computational fluid dynamic (CFD) and numerical Residence Time Distribution (RTD) modelling
  • Recent radiation processing applications in food and agriculture
  • Radiation technologies in tissue banking and tissue engineering
  • Education and training in radiation science and technology
  • Radiation sciences & technology success stories in support of attaining UN-SDGs.
