Conference Description:

The 2nd International Symposium on Ethics of Environmental Health will take place in Budweis (Ceske Budejovice), Czech Republic, 15 – 19 June 2013. It will be held in conjunction with the OPERRA Workshop on Ethics of Radiation Protection.

The ethical concepts underlying our system of radiation protection have received increasing attention over the last few years, but there seems to be little cross-fertilization with the discussion of related ideas in other areas of environmental health. Therefore this symposium will address a whole range of topics including toxicology, risk research, and biomonitoring. It is hoped that colleagues from radiation research will find the programme as interesting as those from other areas of environmental health as well as those from different fields of applied ethics.

Among the speakers that have already agreed to give key note lectures are Mark Coeckelbergh, Twente (NL), Carl Cranor, Riverside (USA), Stephen Gardiner, Seattle (USA), Nicolas Lechopier, Lyon (F), Jacques Lochard (ICRP), Deborah Oughton, Ås (N), Colin L. Soskolne, Edmonton (CAN), Behnam Taebi, Delft (NL), Henk ten Have, Pittsburgh (USA)
