The Conference will take place at the Tivoli Tejo Hotel. Located at Parque das Nações, opposite the Vasco da Gama shopping centre, this modern hotel lies just 2 km from Lisbon International Airport, and only 10 minutes from the city’s downtown district. A transport hub – buses, taxis, trains, subway – is within walking distance.

NAMLS is a series of international conferences organized to promote the development and application of nuclear and related analytical methods in the life sciences. Previous events were held in Amsterdam (The Netherlands; 1967), Bled (Slovenia; 1972), Vienna (Austria; 1978), Gaithersburg, MD (USA; 1989), Prague (Czech Republic; 1993), Beijing (China; 1998), Antalya (Turkey; 2002), and Rio de Janeiro (Brazil; 2005).

Conference topics cover the following methodological issues and application fields:

Methods and their developments
  • Neutron, charged-particle and photon activation analysis;
  • Ion-beam techniques (PIXE, PIGE, RBS, etc);
  • X-ray fluorescence analysis;
  • Alpha- and gamma-spectrometry;
  • Nuclear imaging methods;
  • Tracer methods (using both radio- and stable tracers);
  • Radioisotopic dating;
  • Radioimmunoassay;
  • Speciation (using nuclear analytical methods);
  • Other techniques.

Applications and their purposes
  • Agricultural Studies (element levels in crop cultivation, amelioration and modification);
  • Environmental Studies (biogeochemistry of ecosystems; monitoring and biological monitoring of environmental compartments; transfer processes and element availability; global climatic change);
  • Human/Animal Health (biomedical and epidemiological studies, toxicology and nanotoxicology, impact of aerosols on human health; wellbeing indoors; safety issues);
  • Human/Animal Nutrition (element levels in foods, additives and supplements; bioavailability of elements in food chains; nutrition education);
  • Quality Assurance and Quality Control (preparation and use of reference materials; interlaboratory and method comparisons, methods’ validation and implementation).
