This huge diversity will create an opportunity to exchange and discuss new ideas and make connections with the international members of the scientific community present here today. We were honored to have some of the top scientists in the field from all over the world join us in Doha. This conference holds particular significance for a number of reasons. The topic of Isotopes is one of incredible importance and versatility with numerous applications in the fields of physics, chemistry, biology, medical, industrial, agricultural, environmental, safety and security and many more. The conference will discuss those topics over seven plenary sessions and 12 parallel session.
This topic also celebrates the legacy of women in physics, in particular the Polish/French scientist Marie Curie, a pioneer in the field of radioactivity holding a Nobel prize for her work in both physics and chemistry who we will be celebrating with a special International Day of Medical Physics on Tuesday where more than 50 participants from the medical fields, both government and private in Qatar will be joining us.
