Themed “Harnessing Isotopes for Improved Quality of Life”, 10ICI aims to provide participants invaluable opportunities to discuss the state-of-the-art in isotope technology for a better quality of life through the advancement and application of isotopes in medicine, environment, industry and agriculture. The event has traditionally attracted over 500 delegates and its scope of topics includes radiation processing, nuclear medicine, radiation oncology, industry diagnostic technologies, environmental analysis, isotope production and distribution, nuclear in agriculture, radiation protection, nuclear safety, security and policy.

Message from the President of World Council on Isotopes (WCI)

It is my pleasure and honor to welcome the isotope community to attend the 10th International Conference on Isotopes (10ICI) to be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on 3rd to 7th February 2020.

We expect to have more than 300 scientific and technical presentations, as well as posters on show. Please check the topics, and consider presenting your work. There will also be an accompanying exhibition showcasing organisations engaging in isotope production, measurement, and various applications.

Dr. Nigel R. Stevenson,
President, WCI

Message from the 10ICI Conference Chair

Dear colleagues,

It is my great pleasure to welcome you to the 10ICI conference in Kuala Lumpur. This is going to be the first time for the conference to make its way to the Southeast Asia. The conference will provide a platform for the world’s leaders and best researchers in isotope technology and applications to interact and discuss the latest research in the field.

Looking forward to welcoming you in Kuala Lumpur in 2020.
