Dear colleagues and friends,
We are happy to organize the RAD Conference for the fifth time by trying to make every new conference better than the previous one, correcting the omissions from the previous conferences and implementing new ideas. We are also pleased that the presented contributions, as well as the full papers, have been getting better and better from conference to conference. All received full papers undergo a peer-review process requiring at least two positive reviews, and only the papers which pass that procedure can be accepted for publication in the Conference Proceedings. We can proudly say that the quality of these papers is at a high level now. That inspired us to establish an open access, peer-reviewed scientific journal: Radiation and Applications in Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Medical Sciences, Engineering and Environmental Sciences (www.rad-journal.org), in which, among others, the best-graded papers from RAD conferences are published.
In addition to the ongoing efforts to improve the quality of presented and published contributions, we are trying to maintain a very intense social life during the conference so that, in a relaxed atmosphere, the participants could get to know each other better and make new contacts. We are sure that the participants of previous conferences, now our good friends, carry pleasant memories and positive energy from these events. We hope that this will also be the case in RAD 2017.
Finally, I would like to thank everyone who participated in the survey on the place where the next RAD conferences should be organized. Your opinion is very important to us and it helped us a lot in making the decision where to organize this conference as well as the following conferences. Respecting the results of the survey, our impressions and all other objective circumstances, we reached the decision to organize RAD 2017 Conference in Budva, Montenegro, while keeping in mind all of the other proposed places for future conferences. We know that there are a lot of wonderful places in which you would like for RAD conferences to be organized; however, it should be kept in mind to what extent we are able to successfully organize the conference in a particular place.
I have particular pleasure to invite you to participate in RAD 2017 Conference, hoping that you will leave with nice memories!
Please share this information with your colleagues and friends who may be interested to participate in the conference.
Prof. Dr. Goran Ristic,
Chairman of RAD 2017 Conference
