The 5th Asian and Oceanic IRPA Regional Congress on Radiation Protection will take place on May 20 – 23, 2018 in Melbourne, Australia. Substantial part of the program will be devoted to the deployment and safety of the 5G networks and to the safety of the wireless communication in general.
I will be there presenting and my report from the conference will be published in June 2018.
The full program of the conference (as of April 18, 2018) is available here: http://www.aocrp-5.org/program/
The 5G and wireless safety presentations are listed below. Australia is very active in moving towards the 5G deployment and that’s why it is interesting to be down-under and listen and learn.
The program related to the 5G and wireless at the AOCRP-5 consists of a refresher course, number of platform presentations and is finalized with a panel discussion.
