COST Action BM0704 ‘Emerging EMF Technologies: Health Risk Management’ organised an international conference on ‘Non-Ionizing Radiation and Children's Health’ in Ljubljana Slovenia, on 18 to 20 May 2011.

COST Action BM0704 was delighted to have as co-organisers of the Conference the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP), the German Federal Office for Radiation Protection (BfS), the World Health Organization (WHO), the European Bioelectromagnetics Association (EBEA) and the European Society for Skin Cancer Prevention (EUROSKIN). The Conference was hosted by the Slovenian Institute of Non-Ionizing Radiation (INIS) at the Ljubljana Exhibition and Convention Centre.

The programme for the Conference included invited presentations from experts, proffered papers and posters covering all of the disciplines included in the Action’s work programme, such as biology and medicine, epidemiology and physics. The programme also listed topics such as engineering and risk management and, in addition to low frequency and radiofrequency EMFs, optical radiations including ultraviolet radiation featured prominently. Debates on contrasts between uncertainties in the scientific evidence for potential adverse effects on children’s health from these different radiations and fields and management of risks were held. The proceedings of the Conference will be published in the journal ‘Progress in Biophysics and Molecular Biology’.
