The 4th International Forum on Advances in Radiation Physics (IFARP-4) 

27-31, March 2022



The International Forum on Advances in Radiation Physics (IFARP) is one of the regular activities of the International Radiation Physics Society (IRPS), founded in Ferrara (Italy) in 1985. The Society seeks to promote global exchange and integration of scientific information related to interdisciplinary issues of radiation physics, including the promotion of theoretical and experimental research in radiation physics, research into the physical aspects of the interaction of radiation with inert or living material systems, application of radiation in radiobiological, medical, environmental and industrial sciences, education in radiation physics and the use of radiation for peaceful purposes. 

The 4th International Forum on Advances in Radiation Physics (IFARP-4), 27-31, March 2022 is being organized by the standing committee on radiation protection at King Saud University. The Forum will be held at King Saud University, located in the heart of Riyadh City, the capital of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia  

IFARP4 focuses on the future while also recognizing the considerable advances made in radiation sciences over the several decades since IRPS aimed to promote the interdisciplinary subject of radiation physics, including the fundamentals, application, and implications. The meeting sessions will include invited lectures by leading experts in their fields, contributed oral papers, and poster presentations of contributed papers. Attendees will have an opportunity to share ideas on the underpinning interactions, the uses of radiation in research, and applications in a great many fields such as biomedical applications of radiation, Monte Carlo methods and models, radiation in environmental sciences, detection of threat material, and contraband, radiation protection, shielding and dosimetry, radiation effects on materials, radiation detection and measurements, and other related topics. Regarding participation in IFARP-4, the Advisory, Programme, and Organizing Committees are all at one in strongly encouraging the participation of young colleagues, postdocs, Ph.Ds, MScs, other post-graduates, and undergraduate students. 


Past Meetings of IFARP

The 4th International Forum on Advances in Radiation Physics (IFARP-4), 27-31 March 2022, hosted by King Saud University, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. IFARP-4 follows on from the first forum, the Buenos Aires, Argentina, FORUMBA; 4-5 May 2017. The 2nd forum hosted by Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, IFARP-2; 3-4 December 2019. The 3rd International Forum on Advances in Radiation Physics, co-hosted by Sunway University, Malaysia and the University of Melbourne, Australia, with Universiti Putra Malaysia as a collaborating body 2021. These focused meetings of the International Radiation Physics Society (IRPS) were intended to provide timely updates covering the latest developments and emerging ideas within the underpinning science and radiation technologies. Special Issue of the journal Radiation Physics and Chemistry (RPC) dedicated to all events.
