First Announcement

The Russian Academy of Sciences, Federal Space Agency, Ministry of Education and Science of Russian Federation, Ministry of emergency situations of Russian Federation, Russian Foundation for Basic Research, Scientific Council of RAS on Radiobiological Problems, State scientific Center of RF - Institute for Biomedical Problems of RAS, Joint Institute for Nuclear Research, All-Russian center of Emergency and Radiation Medicine with participation of National Aeronautic and Space Administration (USA) and European Space Agency will hold The 4-th International Workshop on Space Radiation Research and the 17-th Annual NASA Space Radiation Health Investigators' Workshop. Traditionally this scientific meeting is organized for permitting a broad exchange of current results obtained by specialists from various countries working in the parts of classic and space radiobiology, space physics, radiation shielding and dosimetry. The main importance of the problem is connected with the future flights to the Moon and to Mars and with broad possibility of using the obtained results in applied medicine, fundamental biology and human radiation safety.

The following problems should be discussed and analyzed at the workshop:
  • specificity of radiation damage of living systems by densely ionizing radiation,
  • radiation processes in living systems on molecular and cellular levels,
  • DNA and oxidative damage, genomic instability and bystander effects and their roles in problems of carcinogenic and non-carcinogenic radiation risk,
  • space radiation influence on CNS function and regulation in the body,
  • small doses of chronic exposure,
  • acute exposure effects including their combination with chronic irradiation,
  • radio resistance and radio sensitivity of living systems,
  • biologic indications of radiation damage,
  • biological response of non-ionizing radiation,
  • prevention and protection of living systems,
  • radiation shielding materials for space radiation,
  • radiation conditions in space and radiation dosimetry.
In view of the future interplanetary flights, problems of spaceflight radiation risk mitigation and forming the adequate scientific data base are very important for the development of corresponding radiation limits.

The workshop findings can be the basis for planning investigations and increasing their efficiency in the area or space flights radiation safety. They also will be useful for the ground radiation safety ensuring in human activity connected with the influence or usage of ionizing radiation.

The symposium will be organized according to the following scheme:

June 3 - 4, arriving the participants to Moscow, registration,
June 5 - 7, the working sessions are held in the main building of the Russian Academy of Sciences,
June 7, evening, transportation to St. - Petersburg by train,
June 8 - 9, conclusive session and plenary meeting is held on the base of the All-Russian center of Emergency and Radiation Medicine, St. - Petersburg,
June 10 - 11, departure of the workshop participants.
