55th Annual Radiobioassay and Radiochemistry Measurements Conference
October 26 - October 30, 2009
San Antonio, Texas
The organizing committee of the 55th annual Radiobioassay and 
Radiochemistry Measurements Conference solicits abstracts for papers and 
workshops in the following topical areas:
·                                  In-vivo and In-vitro radiobioassay
·                                 Advances in radiochemical separations
·                                 Advances in Environmental Methods
·                                 Decommissioning, decontamination, and 
restoration activities
·                                 Quality assurance/quality control, 
performance testing, and round robins
·                                 Calculations and Statistics
·                                 Low-level radiochemical measurements 
·                                 Rapid analytical methods in response to 
·                                 Radioisotopes in Nuclear Medicine
·                                 International Radiochemistry Issues and 
·                                 Miscellaneous topics
The above list does not constitute the program topics; however, it is 
intended to solicit  input from which the program will be organized.
Preliminary abstracts will be accepted to offer authors the opportunity to 
submit research material that is either complete or still in progress. 
This policy establishes an opportunity for attendees to discuss new 
findings and resolve problems of mutual interest related to the analysis 
of bioassay and environmental samples. The fundamental benefits for the 
participants are new ideas and approaches that can be taken and directly 
applied in their work environment to improve their capabilities.
Preliminary abstracts shall be submitted on the attached 
form.   Submission of preliminary abstracts facilitates program planning 
by the steering committee.
Final abstracts will be accepted having no more than five pages including 
figures, tables, and references.
(1) All abstracts should be submitted with pages numbered as a Word 
document attachment to an email;
(2) The name of the author who will be making the presentation should be 
(3) Abstracts should be single spaced using a 12 point font; and
(4) Provide at least one inch margins on all sides of the standard 8.5 by 
11 inch paper.
Final abstracts will be published in the Conference Proceedings.
Send the initial and final abstracts by email to abstracts at rrmc-baer.org. 
If you have any questions at this time concerning the technical sessions 
or workshops, please contact the technical and workshop session co-chair's 
Virgene Mulligan and William Hayes at the above email address.
Important information for presenters: In response to many comments and 
scientific discussions that have characterized this conference, we have 
allotted 20 minutes for oral presentations. Since the question and answer 
period usually results in a great deal of scientific discussion, we ask 
that the speakers plan to allow a minimum of 7-10 minutes for discussion. 
Total time per speaker will be limited to 20 minutes so that we can remain 
on schedule.
July 15, 2009              Deadline for the preliminary abstracts
August 17, 2009         Notification of Abstract and Workshop acceptance
August 31, 2009         Deadline for final abstracts
The RRMC 2009 is planning a golf outing - details will be announced 
later.  A number of vendors have expressed interest in helping to make 
this event a success (e.g., prizes, lessons to help you win prizes, or 
taking care of the tab at the beverage cart).  Please contact Larry Jassin 
at Eichrom Technologies with a no-obligation expression of general 
interest in participating or suggestions by July 1, 2009 to help us plan.  
More details will be available in future announcements.  We will try to 
accommodate players of all skill levels by using a Texas-scramble format.
