The Elsevier Editorial System (EES) is now ready for accepting submissions for the special issue “13th ‘TIHANY” Symposium on Radiation Chemistry. (See below!)
The series of “Tihany” Symposia on Radiation Chemistry aims to promote worldwide scientific and technical collaboration among scientists involved in various aspects of radiation research and applications in a stimulating and thought provoking environment. The first Symposium was held in Tihany in 1962 and since then has been held approximately every four years. Most recent meetings were in Eger (2006) and Zalakaros (2011). Now it is our pleasure to announce the 13th Tihany Symposium. The scientific program of the Symposium covers all the major disciplines of both basic and applied radiation chemistry, with invited speakers, oral and poster contributions from participants. Generous time frame will be allocated to open discussions.
- Fundamental processes in radiation chemistry
- Electron beam-, ion beam- and gamma irradiation applications
- Radiation chemistry of biological systems
- Radiation chemistry of nanoscale systems
- Macromolecular systems (polymerization kinetics, crosslinking, grafting, etc.)
- Biomedical materials (biocompatible surfaces, hydrogels, drug delivery, etc.)
- Environmental protection (e. g. wastewater-, sludge-, flue gas treatment, recycling, etc.)
- Food irradiation, identification of irradiated food, packaging materials
- Radiation resistant materials (sterilization, deep space, nuclear reactors, etc.)
- Dosimetry and process control

Balatonalmádi, the popular health resort lies on the eastern part of the north shore of Lake Balaton. Balaton, in the Transdanubian region of Hungary, is the largest lake in Central Europe, and one of its foremost tourist destinations. The single, amphitheatre-like position of Balatonalmádi provides special, Mediterranean climate for the city.
The Ramada Hotel & Resort Lake Balaton**** (http://ramadabalaton.hu/en) is situated in Balatonalmádi, in the middle of an amazing ancient park only 200 meters from the shore, what you can easily reach by crossing a nice bridge from the garden of the Hotel. The hotel is close to Balatonalmádi railway station.
The high quality conference center of the Hotel is an ideal venue for the 13th “Tihany”. Conference rooms are equipped with modern technical facilities; they are illuminated by natural light.
Swimming pool, jacuzzi and different types of saunas (Finnish, Infra, and Turkish bath) are available for the participants.
Shuttle buses will be available between the Budapest (only on the 29th of August!), Liszt Ferenc airport and Balatonalmádi. Please indicate your arrival time and flight number. We will harmonize the departure times of the buses with the arrival times. Two or three shuttle buses will be available.
Please check urgently if you need visa and indicate if you need official invitation letter for obtaining visa.
