About the Conference  

Nuclear radiations have many applications as well as hazards. The important applications of nuclear radiations are in Medicine, Industries, Agriculture and Power generation. The radiations from radiation sources can be harmful to human beings. The challenge is how to prevent harmful nuclear radiations from nuclear reactors and nuclear accelerators and how to manage nuclear waste in a better way. Sometimes nuclear accidents may occur due to earthquakes, tsunami, terrorist attacks, etc. Minimizing the effects of nuclear accidents is the present challenge. The shielding and protection of nuclear plants is of primary importance.
Tumkur University is organizing two-day National level Conference on “Nuclear Applications, Hazards and Safety Measures” on 10 and 11 February 2012. In the present situation the conference seems to be relevant and more useful. The conference aims to bring scientists, faculty and students involved in research in the field of nuclear reactors, nuclear accelerators, nuclear medicine, radiation monitoring, bio-leaching of radioactive ores and study the socio- economic impact of nuclear energy on the same platform.

The objective of the conference is to present state-of-the-art scientific results, encourage academic and industrial interaction and to promote collaborative research and development activities in nuclear applications, hazards and safety measures.

The Conference covers very important topics, provides grand stage to opening discussion and motivates the Scientists, Faculty, Research scholars   and students interested in Nuclear Physics.

The uniqueness of the conference is that along with Department of Physics, Department of Bio-Technology, Department of Economics, Department of Political Science and Department of Social work are actively participating in the conference. This helps to share the knowledge between Sciences and Social Sciences.
Tumkur University welcomes delegates from all over India.  Interested participants are requested to register at the earliest. Download the registration form pdfdoc.
