2nd symposium on Applied Atomic and Nuclear Technologies, (Thiès, Senegal)

Daily, humans are exposed to various radiations of natural and artificial origin. So-called ionizing radiation has harmful effects on human health and the environment. Since the creation of the International Commission on Radiological Protection in 1928, radiation protection and dosimetry have been at the heart of all medical prevention and public health policies in various countries. Like many countries, Senegal has created the Authority for Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety (Decree No. 2010-893 of June 30, 2010) which, among other missions, ensures on behalf of the state, the control of nuclear safety and radiation protection in Senegal to protect workers, patients, the public and the environment from the risks associated with nuclear activities. In addition, artificial intelligence (AI) is coming its time to aid medical diagnosis, notably thanks to recent breakthroughs in optimization and the explosion of computers’ computing power.

It is in this context at the national and international level, that the UFR Sciences and Technologies of the University of Thiès, co-organizes with the Chrono-environment laboratory, the second edition of the international conference of Applied Atomic and Nuclear Technologies ( TANA2020), from November 2 to 7, 2020, on dosimetry, radiation protection and artificial intelligence in the service of biomedical in particular.
