59th Annual Meeting- "Where Cultures Meet"
Due to an earlier than usual meeting date the abstract deadline has been extended. See below for information on the March 22nd extension.
As you will see in the coming weeks (and by the included tentative schedule), your program committee is working very hard to create a unique program for this annual showcase event that will include talks from distinguished speakers, debates, topical reviews, symposia, SIT workshop, and poster presentations encompassing multiple disciplines. We're hoping to aid in sparking innovative ideas and fostering new collaborations between members.
Please allow me to take this opportunity to invite you to the fascinating city of La Nouvelle-Orléans (New Orleans), home to a truly unique melding pot of authentic culture, food, and music with diverse heritage from Europe, the Caribbean, Africa, and beyond, for the 59th Annual Meeting of the Radiation Research Society.
I look forward to welcoming you all to the Jazz city of New Orleans.

- Hilton Headquarter hotel is the most ideal central meeting location in the city with a Rail Car stop in front of the hotel, cool waterfront location, steps from the Warehouse District and an easy walk to the French Quarter you won't find a better way to enjoy all of the city's offerings. There's even a mall attached to the hotel with a great local food court and easy shopping!
