This is one of the series of international conferences held periodically, every 2 to 3 years, by IABERD (International Association of Biological and EPR Radiation Dosimetry). EPR BioDose 2020 Okayama hopes to attract a large number of students, professionals and experts working on fundamentals and applications of biological dosimetry and EPR (electron paramagnetic resonance) dosimetry and dating.

Okayama is located 700 km west of Tokyo, between Osaka and Hiroshima, on the coast of Seto Inland Sea. It is just a one-hour flight from Tokyo, full of historical attractions, including Momotaro tales.
