SPERA holds bienial conferences across the South Pacific region.

The purpose of these conferences is to promote communication among scientists in the field of environmental radioactivity. Scientists from many different disciplines and organisations from the South Pacific region and countries worldwide will come together to discuss and debate the origins and behaviour of natural and anthropogenic radionuclides in the environment; their radiological consequences and the practices required to minimise these; and their application to the understanding of natural processes.


Next Conference:



Second half of 2024

The Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency will be coordinating the next SPERA conference, scheduled to take place in Fiji in the second half of 2024. Details will be published in the near future.
