Isfahan, March 7, IRNA - Iran's nuclear conference opened at Isfahan Medical Science University on Wednesday.
Speaking at the inaugural ceremony of the event, the executive secretary of the conference, Mohammad-Reza Abdi, said that about 500 individuals including the officials of Iran's Atomic Energy Organization (IAEO), university instructors, researchers and students majoring in nuclear sciences and technologies are participating in the ongoing seminar.

Simultaneous with the growing trend of the Islamic Revolution, Iran's Nuclear Society once more invited nuclear experts and researchers to continue their activities to reduce the effects of international sanctions imposed on Iran in nuclear sector.
"Over the past 15 years, a number of training workshops have been held by Iran's Nuclear Society. It plans to arrange such workshops at the regional level under the supervision of and in cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in two years and make the achievements of Iranian scientists available to other countries," he added.
He said that the benefits of nuclear energy outweigh its risk, adding that the risks involved in some industries, such as chemical industry -- particularly as far as environment is concerned -- overshadow that of nuclear energy.
The conference will continue up to Thursday.
An exhibition on the major domestic products and researches of nuclear companies is being held on the sidelines of the ongoing conference.
