Radsafe doesn't handle attachements/graphics, so here is the text from the flyer we put out today announcing the Call for Abstracts for NORM IX.
This is really shaping up to be a major conference. 

Proper management of Naturally Occurring Radioactive Material (NORM) is an international challenge. Without proper controls, radiation exposures to the environment, public and workers can be significant. 
The Ninth International Symposium, NORM IX, is being held for the first time in North America. NORM IX will address a broad spectrum of issues including radiation protection concerns, management approaches and stakeholder liabilities arising from mismanagement. Topics include, but are not limited to: oil and gas; rare earth and other mineral production; water and wastewater treatment; coal combustion; uranium recovery, and phosphate and fertilizers. 

Participants from across government, academia, industry, and other stakeholder groups are encouraged to submit an abstract for consideration. 

Abstract Submission Details 
Authors must submit abstracts for oral papers and poster presentations by 24 September 2018. The following topical areas are of particular interest: 
• Decommissioning and Site Clean-up 
• Environmental Protection 
• Radon Measurement and Mitigation 
• Stakeholder and Legal Challenges 

There are numerous additional session topics on the abstract submittal site...

NORM IX is being presented by the Conference of Radiation Control Program Directors (CRCPD) in asssoication with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
