Research on microwave effects commenced in the USA and Soviet Union in the 1950s but Soviet exposure limits for RF were 1000
times below those in the USA. Gaps in knowledge are still researched world wide with agendas and literature reviews by WHO’s EMF
Project. Since ICNIRP was established in 1992 some 60 countries have adopted its limits. This presentation gives details on how
current EMF exposure limits evolved and what is still needed to ensure public and occupational safety from EMF.

We analyzed annual age-standardized incidence rates in
men and women aged 20 to 79 years during 1979–2008 in
Nordic countries (35,250 glioma cases). Probabilities of
detecting various levels of relative risk were computed
using simulations. No clear trend change in glioma
incidence rates was observed. Several of the risk increases
seen in case-control studies appear to be incompatible
with the observed lack of incidence rate increase in middle
-aged men, pointing to biases and errors.

Ovarian cancer is the 5th leading cause of cancer death among
U.S. women.  Intrabuccal administration of very low and safe
radiofrequency electromagnetic fields modulated at specific
frequencies is a new therapeutic modality. Here we show that
ovarian cancer-specific modulation frequencies inhibit the
proliferation of two ovarian cancer cell lines and modify gene
expression.  These findings suggest that this therapeutic approach
should be further studied in ovarian cancer.

For many years, the two words "electroporation" and "electropermeabilization" have been used in parallel. They have been often used
indistinctly, but sometimes they have been opposed. Our recent data explain the differences between the two concepts that were
underlined by these two words.

Most studies of bioeffects of nanosecond electric pulses focus on cell damage. However, this presentation will focus on complex
biological responses elicited in cells by nsEP exposure. NsEP stimulation is mediated primarily by membrane permeabilization, Ca2+
mobilization, and water uptake, and triggers such complex responses as immediate and delayed phosphatidylserine externalization,
formation of pseudopod-like membrane protrusions, microvesiculation, and electrosensitization.

This presentation provides an overview of risk communication theory and practice in order to identify the particular challenges
presented by both ionising and non-ionising radiation issues. The presentation will draw upon recent cases of radioactive waste
management and disposal in the UK, and international assessments of possible health risks associated with mobile telecommunications.

Analysis of Media Comment on the EMF Health Debate and Base Station Deployment in Australia

Roslyn Young1
    Principal Consultant, RozYCOMMS, Sydney, Australia, 2017
Based on tracking data for mobile phone users, Australia has experienced an 11.1 % increase in concern levels from 2007-11. This
paper analyses the impact of third party media comment on the EMF health debate. A second analysis on base station media coverage
also is undertaken examining community issues. Key insights and public policy implications will be presented and discussed.

The Australian mobile telecommunications industry through the Mobile Carriers Forum (MCF) has partnered with the community and
government to develop a code for mobile network infrastructure deployment.  The code sets requirements for appropriate community
consultation and engagement as carriers build and upgrade networks to meet growing demand for mobile and wireless services in
Australia.  The MCF has also developed a public online database of site safety information for all base stations in Australia.

Risk communication in risk controversies

Peter Wiedemann1
    ITAS, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Berlin, Germany, 10178
The paper is discussing the challenges of risk communication in risk controversies and is aiming to offer some advice and support for
better risk reporting. Three issues will be addressed: (1) biases and  flaws of interpreting scientific evidence in a risk assessment, (2)
how to communicate risk assessments, (2) how to improve risk reporting, and (3) which evaluation criteria should be used to assesss
the quality and integrity of risk reporting.

Unlike the exposure to radio-frequency fields from mobile
phones which has been assessed in many studies in the past
decades, the exposure to low frequency (LF) fields generated by
those widely used devices has received considerably less
attention. The aim of this project is to evaluate the induced
electric fields and currents due to the exposure to LF magnetic
fields created from mobile phones using GSM and UMTS
communication technologies operated at the human head.

In 2007, two important but conflicting reviews of the effects of ELF on human health were published: the World Health Organization
Environmental Health Criteria 238 report and the BioInitiative Report. These have been prominent in many debates on both science
and policy since. This presentation will compare these two reports in regard to the associations of ELF with cancer and with
Alzheimer’s disease, and comment on more recent research results and unresolved issues.

Six international laboratories participated in an interlaboratory
comparison of SAR calculations using a CAD-based commercially
available dual band mobile phone. Four different software
packages were used: (a) EMPIRE from IMST, (b) HFSS from
Ansoft, (c) Microwave Studio and Microstripes both from CST,
and (d) XFDTD from Remcom. Taking into account the
differences in the methods implemented in the solvers used for

A measurement campaign of the RF exposure in indoor
environments (schools, day nureseries, homes, and offices) is
performed in Belgium. A two-tier measurement method is
proposed and used in order to account for the time evolution of
the exposure. The exposure is assessed by a spot measurement
with a triaxial probe and spectrum analyzer, while the time
evolution is recorded by exposimeters during a whole
week. Combining narrowband and exposimeter measurements
allow to extrapolate the exposure to another point in time.

The absorption properties of three kinds of collagen sheet were measured in a terahertz band. We verified that the absorbance spectra
of the three kinds of collagen agreed well, even though the amino acid composition differed. When salt was added to the collagen gel, a
new absorption peak appeared at 200 cm-1. The peak wavenumber changed to 168 cm-1 in dried sample due to interaction between

Seungwoo Lee1 & Nam Kim1
    College of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Chungbuk National University, Cheongju-si, Korea, 361-763
An artificial magnetic conductor (AMC) is designed for reducing the specific absorption rate at 2.4 GHz. When the reflector, which is
made by the AMC structures is applied to the tablet PC, the SAR is dramatically decreased. By the simulation results, the SAR of the
human phantom with the AMC reflector having the size of 84 mm x 126 mm was only 0.002 W/kg. In the absence of the reflector, the
SAR was 0.125 W/kg. The results show a 98.4 % decrease of the SAR by using the proposed AMC reflector.

One of the most interesting questions in bioelectromagnetics is a difference between results of experiments performed in different
labs. One of the reasons may be a difference of investigated objects, especially in experiments in vivo. The authors would like to focus
attention on the technical aspects of exposure systems and role of: mutual interaction between OUT and an exposure system and
between the objects, polarization, a similarity of real exposure to that applied in experiment.

The geometric multigrid method is an effective numerical technique for solving linear equation systems resulting from the discretization
of elliptic partial differential equations. In this study the geometric multigrid method with the finite-element discretization is
implemented for solving the induced electric field in the dosimetry of low-frequency magnetic fields. Numerical tests show that the

The field strengths from mobile phone base stations (RBS) can be measured using costly and sophisticated equipment, or they can be
modelled using complex simulations.
The measurement of field strengths may be considered impractical and expensive.  Therefore, simulation of the fields from these
installations is often the preferred option.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether the use of currently available simulation packages is a valid approach for predicting
field strengths in comparison to measurements.

Abstract. -- The aim of this study is to analyze the influence of a tissue homogenization on the SAR induced in a fetus exposed to plane
waves. For this purpose, we used six numerical adult models exposed to three different electromagnetic plane waves (frontal incidence,
right and left side incidences), at three different frequencies (900, 1800 and 2100 MHz). The whole body SAR of a fetus positioned
inside each model is determined using the finite difference in time domain method.

Cellular Psychology: Defined on an exterior algebra using complex numbers, it helps to explain the variable EMF

Pierre Le Chapellier1 & Badri Matta1
    Algology Department, Soissons General Hospital, Soissons, France, F-02209
The cell adaptation in reaction to the medium conditions results in oriented biological sizes whose modulation can be reported to an
exterior algebra with complex numbers. Its psychic energy includes the potential, or cell attitude, and the present moving forces. The
magnetic component of an applied signal pushes the cell attitude to get a lead on the forces, the electric component to late it. And the
reiteration of the signal prints a character which brings a sense. This is why electromagnetic stimulation has variable bioeffects.

Transmission rates and emission levels were measured from electric smartmeters in Ottawa Canada. The mean total daily transmission
duration was under 1 minute. Worst–case outdoor power density levels 20 cm from the meters were 25 times below Canadian general
public exposure limits while those indoors were more than one thousand times below the same limits. Given the low transmission
rates and weak strengths, emissions measured in this study were found to be a highly unlikely risk to health.

The possibility of biological and health effects of exposures to EMF remains controversial and their biophysical mechanisms are
unknown. In the present study, we used S. cerevisiae to identify genes responding to ELF-MF and RF-EMF exposures. We found that the
expressions of SMC3 and AQY2 were significantly changed after RF-EMF exposure (P<0.05). But no gene was identified in response to
ELF-MF exposure. These data suggest that the yeast cells may differentially respond to ELF-MF and RF-EMF.

Our goal is to study subtle changes in hsp70 expression in real-time during exposure to cellular stressors such as changes in
environmental temperature. We developed a dual chamber apparatus to monitor the luminescence of NIH 3T3 cells, transfected with

variability was minimized by comparing simultaneous exposure to thermal stress in samples of both chambers.

SAR measurements are realized by means of detected probes which have a correct behaviour in the case of CW emissions. For signals
modulated by pulses raises a problem. The rise and the fall times of the pulse voltage detected are not the same. Moreover, the
difference between these two times increases when the level of the electric field increases. This is the transient non-linearity (TNL) of
the detected probes. This study evaluates the error induced by TNL in the case of SAR measurements of GSM mobile phones.

From the meaning which prevents the influence on health, the method is needed which can visualize the spatial distribution of EMF. In
this paper, it's proposed about the method to measure spatial field distribution with simple system configurations. The 3D coordinates
of measuring position are obtained by tracking a movement of an IR marker which is set on the field sensor by two IR cameras. As a
result, it is possible to make a spatial EM distribution map using this method in real time.

Non-thermal intense electric field can be a unique physical stress that results often in secondary responses to organisms. Our previous
study demonstrated that the enhancement of proliferation activity of HeLa S3 cells was induced by narrowband 300 kV/cm fields and
dependent on the frequency of the fields. In this paper, we discuss possible mechanisms of the enhanced proliferation based on the
cellular signaling analyzed using a real time PCR method.

The dielectric properties of the biological tissue equivalent liquid are a cause of error on SAR measurements. Three different
parameters are modified by the dielectric properties of the tissue equivalent liquid: 1) the adaptation of the radiating antenna, 2) the
coupling between this antenna and the liquid and 3) the sensitivity of the probe in the liquid. This study is devoted to the first aspect
which modifies the value of the emitted power and consequently the value of the SAR.
