Conference attendees included scientific researchers, members of the World Health Organization (WHO), the Irish Minister for Children and Youth Affairs, and the Health Lead from DG Research Commissioner Maura Geoghegan-Quinn's cabinet.

Two posters were presented by CREAL Radiation Programme researchers. Magda Bosch de Basea presented a poster entitled "EPI-CT: design and epidemiological methods of an international study on cancer risks after paediatric CT". Chelsea Eastman presented a poster entitled "MOBI-Kids: Study on Communication Technology, Environment, and Brain Tumours in Young People." Both posters are available for download at the links below.
