Prior to the start of the main conference, SRP will run an education day for pupils from local secondary schools on 15 May as part of its commitment to educating younger generations in the field.
The conference was awarded subvention funding from VisitAberdeen which was match funded from VisitScotland’s Conference Bid fund.
Professor Pete Cole, president of SRP commented: "I am delighted that our annual conference is coming to Aberdeen in 2017. It is a wonderful city full of culture and history, combined with impressive credentials relating to science and engineering innovation. The facilities on offer are outstanding and I have been overwhelmed by the kind help that we at SRP have received from the AECC and VisitAberdeen teams."
Steven Daun, sales manager at AECC, added: "It has been a pleasure to work alongside Pete Cole and the team at SRP to bring the annual conference to Aberdeen in 2017. The work carried out by the society is beneficial to the radiological field of research, which is ongoing in Aberdeen. We hope all the delegates look forward to visiting the region and finding out more about the world-class research which is taking place in the city."
