A NATO Advanced Research Workshop on Radio Frequency Radiation Dosimetry: Its Relationship to the Biological Effects of Electromagnetic Fields will be held 12-16 October 1998, Gozd Martuljek, SLOVENIA. This five-day workshop will bring together world class scientists from NATO countries and NATO Co-operation Partner (CP) and Partner for Peace (PfP) countries. The experts will review the state of the science dealing with Radio Frequency Radiation dosimetry, measurements and the relationship between SAR, power density and the biological effects of the electromagnetic fields. This meeting continues a series of planned NATO workshops on Radio Frequency Radiation Health and Safety that began in 1993 with the NATO ARW on Radio Frequency Standards held in Rome, IT. The speakers will have papers published in a NATO ASI proceedings.
The first three days will consist of presentations by 55 speakers from 17 nations, including eight PfP nations. Confirmed sessions and the chairs are Basics of Electromagnetics and Dosimetry, Prof. Yuri Grigoriev, (Russia); Dielectric Properties of Biological Tissue, Dr. Camelia Gabriel (United Kingdom); Theoretical Dosimetry, Dr Om Gandhi (United States); Experimental Dosimetry, Dr. Niels Kuster (Switzerland); Contact and Induced Currents, Dr. Michel Israel (Bulgaria), Responses of Man and Animals I, Dr Eleanor Adair (United States); Responses of Man and Animals II, Dr. John D'Andrea (United States); Applications of Dosimetry in Biology & Medicine, Dr. Damijan Miklavicic (Slovenia); Standards and Applications, Dr. John Osepchuk (United States); and The Dosimetry Handbook, Dr Patrick Mason (United States).
In the final two days of the workshop, participants will form working groups to evaluate the material presented in the sessions and reach a consensus about what material should be included in the 5th revision of the Radiofrequency Radiation Dosimetry Handbook.
The meeting is hosted by the Faculty of Electro-technical Engineering, University of Ljubljana and the Slovenian Institute of Quality and Metrology. The meeting is sponsored and funded by the NATO Scientific & Environmental Affairs Division: High Technology Priority Area , the NATO Research & Technology Organization: Human Factors & Medicine Panel, the U.S. Department of Air Force, Air Force Research Laboratory, Brooks AFB, Texas, in cooperation with the Ministry of Science and Technology of the Republic of Slovenia, the Ministry of Defence of the Republic of Slovenia, the European Bioelectromagnetics Association, the Bioelectromagnetics Society, United States Air Force European Office of Aerospace Research and Development, and the World Health Organization.
The workshop is by invitation only. Observers can not attend this working meeting.
