The abstracts of proposed presentations are accepted till the start of the conference.

The authors who would like to have their presentations considered for verbal presentation should submit their abstracts not later than by 31 January 2018. The on-line registration/abstract submission system should be used. Please, indicate your preference for verbal or poster presentation and your preferred topic. All abstracts will undergo a review by subject experts, final acceptance of the paper and the session assignment will depend on the Committee's decision that will also determine the type of presentation. The accepted abstracts (received not later than by 13 April 2018) will be published in a Booklet of Abstracts. Late Abstracts (posters only) will continue being accepted till the start of the conference.

The format of the abstract is plain text, the recommended length is 3200 characters (including spaces). The language of the abstract must be English.


A Booklet of Abstracts will be available at or before the start of the on-site registration. Similarly to the previous conference, the full peer-reviewed papers meeting the criteria of the journal will be published as conference proceedings in a peer-reviewed scientific journal. Following the successful completion of the negotiations, the RadChem 2018 Proceedings will be published in the Journal of Radioanalytical and Nuclear Chemistry.

N.B. Presentation of the paper at the conference does not constitute any right to have the paper published in JRNC - the reviewers will strictly stick to the JRNC standards and only a maximum of 100 papers best meeting these standards will appear in the Proceedings!

The authors who prefer to submit their manuscripts to other journals, which would fit better the scope of their work, may feel free to do so. It would be appreciated if such papers include a note "Presented at the 18th Radiochemical Conference (RadChem 2018) held in Mariánské Lázně, Czech Republic, on 13-18 May 2018".


Students are welcome to take part in the Best Students Poster competition. In addition to certificates, the awards will include registration fee refunds.


The posters will be evaluated by an Award Committee designated by the RadChem 2006 Organising Committee. The decision of this Committee is final and cannot be appealed. The criteria will include:

Award Ceremony

The Award Ceremony will take place on Thursday, 17 May 2018, at 17:15 before the opening of the Poster Session.


Registration for the Students Poster Competition should be submitted during the on-line registration.
