Dear Colleagues,

I am delighted to inform you that the Fourth International Conference on Po and Radioactive Pb Isotopes (INCO-PoPb-2019) will be organized by the East China Normal University, State Key Laboratory of Estuarine and Coastal Research, on 8-11 April, 2019 in Shanghai, China.

This conference is being held once in every two to four years. The first Conference was organized in Seville (Spain) in October 2009, the second one was held in Mangalore (India) in February 2013 and the third one was organized in Kusadası (Turkey) in October 2015. The main aim of our conferences is to bring together researchers from all over the world and give the opportunity to exchange ideas and experience, especially, on practical applications of the recent scientific results on Po and Radioactive Pb Isotopes. It is planned to publish selected papers presented in the conference in a special issue of a peer-reviewed Journal (Journal of Environmental Radioactivity). Further, extended abstracts of all papers presented in the conference will be published as proceedings of the conference. We invite you to participate in this conference. I hope that your attendance at the fourth INCO-PoPb-2019 Conference will be interesting and enjoyable for you, both scientifically and socially, and that you will enjoy your stay in Shanghai.
