We have a great pleasure to invite you to attend the

4th International Conference RADON IN THE ENVIRONMENT 2023"

which will be held in Kraków (Poland)

from 22nd to 26th May, 2023

We are very happy about having possibility to meet you again “face to face” after the awful pandemic time.


The conference is addressed to scientists of different specializations, medical doctors and others who work or are interested in natural radioactivity (focused especially on radon and thoron isotopes). 

The Henryk Niewodniczanski Institute of Nuclear Physics, Polish Academy of Sciences has been organizing since 2000 the serial conferences, traditionally called RADON IN THE ENVIRONMENT.  In 2000 and 2005 there were national conferences. This is the fourth international meeting; the previous ones took place in Zakopane, Poland (2009) and in Kraków (2015, 2019). 

Research on radon/thoron and its progeny has been conducted all over the world for many years. The conference is expected to provide a forum to explore and discuss new scientific initiatives. European Union Council Directive 2013/59/Euratom laid down Basic Safety Standards (EU BSS) for protection against the dangers arising from exposure to ionising radiation. Under the new Directive radon takes on particular significance. Thus, we hope that our conference will be a helpful scientific meeting for all participants. 

The conference will include oral and poster sessions. The conference language will be English.  Selection of the papers presented at the Radon 2023 conference after peer-reviews will be published in Journal of the European Radon Association (JERA).

Conference venueThe Conference will take place in the center of Kraków (southern part of Poland). All sessions will be held at the International Cultural Centre, 25 Main Square (Rynek Główny 25)

Kraków is Poland’s second largest city and the country’s main tourist destination. The city remains the culture capital of Poland; it boasts hundreds of historical buildings, from medieval churches to Art Nouveau edifices. 


We hope that the conference will give you opportunity to start new cooperation, to learn something new about radon problems and to make new friends.
