President of the Association: Prof. Goran Ristić

Prof. Goran S. Ristic received the B.Sc. degree in physics at the Faculty of Natural Science and Mathematics, and the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in electronics at the Faculty of Electronic Engineering, University of Nis, Serbia, in 1990, 1994, and 1998, respectively. Since 1990, he has been with the Faculty of Electronic Engineering, University of Nis, where he is currently a Full Professor of Physics and Head of Applied Physics Laboratory. As a Full Professor at the University of Nis, has significant experience in research and education, participating in numerous research projects and teaching several courses – General Physics, Physical Electronics, Quantum and Statistical Physics, Dosimetry and Dosimeters, and Medical Physics. He has participated in 6 national projects, was a coordinator of a FP7 project, entitled “Joint research on various types of radiation dosimeters”, and is managing an interdisciplinary national project related to the radiation measurement and protection, entitled “Joint research of the measurements and effects of ionizing and UV radiation in medicine and environmental protection”. This project gathers the researchers from four universities and eleven faculties from Serbia from various fields of research: physics, electronics, medicine, environmental protection, biology, chemistry, sociology, etc. His research includes radiation dosimeters, the reliability of MOS transistor (the radiation and post-irradiation effects, as well as the electrical and post-electrical stress effects), the electrical discharge and recombination processes in the afterglow periods in gases, and medical X-ray imaging. Goran Ristic is an author or co-author of more than 100 research papers, including more than 60 papers in peer-reviewed journals. His papers have been cited more than 200 times. From 2001 to 2003, he was a post-doctoral researcher at the University of Toronto, Department of Medical Biophysics and Medical Imaging. Goran Ristic was a Chairman of the First International Conference on Radiation and Dosimetry in Various Fields of Research (RAD 2012) which was held in Niš, gathering about 150 participants from about 30 countries. Also, he was a Chairman of the RAD 2014, as well as co-Chair of the Second East European Radon Symposium (SEERAS) that was organized as a satellite event of RAD 2014. These events gathered about 300 participants from about 50 countries. Goran was Guest Editor of Special Issue of Radiation Protection Dosimetry Journal devoted to RAD 2014 Conference and SEERAS symposium. Currently, he is a Chairman of the RAD 2015, which will be held in Budva, Montenegro, from June 8 – 12, 2015.
