Biological Effects of Wireless Technology” that will take place on October 4. – 6., 2019 at the Kurfürstliches Schloss Mainz.
Excerpts from the symposium announcement (detailed schedule of the symposium will be announced later):
Cell phones, Smartphones, Tablets … Smart Home … Smart City … Internet of Things … The digital transformation of our society is expected to continue with the new 5G standard, largely through mobile and wireless communication. As a result, radiation exposure due to mobile and wireless communication technologies, their infrastructure and applications will increase enormously.
What health risks are involved? What are the possible consequences for particular groups at risk, especially children and adolescents?
The conference will provide easy-to-understand overviews of the “biological effects” of mobile and wireless communication technologies as well as in-depth discussions that will be as accessible to non-experts as possible. Internationally renowned speakers will share firsthand information and recommendations in lectures, workshops, documentary films and panel discussions, inviting everybody to join the discussion.
