The article presents information on the International Conference on Isotopic and Nuclear Analytical techniques for Health and Environment held on 10-13 June 2003 in Vienna, Austria. The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) organized the Conference. Several scientists, technologists, and representatives of industry and regulatory authorities participated in the Conference. They exchanged information and reviewed the status of current applications of isotopic and nuclear analytical techniques (NAT). They also discussed the future trends and development of NAT.
