THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTENSIVE INTEREST IN THE CONGRESS!

SECRETARIAT OF II. INTERNATIONAL CBRN CONGRESS

Dear Participants,

The I. International CBRN Congress which was held in December 2017 by our Presidency for the first time, brought together many national and international scientists, students, public and private sector representatives, has been able to raise awareness in society on the threats and dangers of CBRN.

We are honored to invite you to the II. International CBRN Congress which will be held on 27-29 November 2019. The II. International CBRN Congress, where invaluable national and international participants will share their knowledge and experience, is organized by Ministry of Interior Disaster and Emergency Management Presidency which is coordinator authority in Turkey regarding disaster and emergencies, with the contribution of experts and academicians in the field. The II. International CBRN Congress aims to discuss the novel approaches against current threats by bringing together partners on Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear fields.

It has been realized that using nuclear bombs in World War II caused many civilian deaths and target group changed from the military side to the civilian side.  With the conflicts in the Middle East in recent years, Chemical weapons have frequently come to the agenda that has been another phenomenon increasing the importance of CBRN issue.

In the congress where there are sessions on current technological developments and scientific studies as well as threats and hazards in the CBRN area, academic studies will be given as oral and written papers. In addition, the national and international manufacturers in the CBRN field will be offered the opportunity to introduce their products to the participants and exhibit their products at the stands installed in the congress. On the last day of congress, there will be an intervention demonstration of a CBRN incident which will be carried out by AFAD CBRN First Response Teams. 

We hope to see all the participants who will share their studies and experiences in the field of CBRN with us and we will be pleased to meet you on 27-29 November 2019 in Ankara
