Upcoming Events

16 - 27October2017

World Nuclear University – Radiation Tech

The World Nuclear University (WNU) School on Radiation Technologies will be held from 16 to 27 October 2017 in São Paulo, Brazil, in collaboration with the Nuclear and Energy Research Institute (IPEN/CNEN). The WNU School on Radiation Technologies (RT School) is a two-week programme aimed at future leaders in the radiation and radioisotope field.


23 - 25October2017

Validation and Process Control for Low Energy Electron Beam Irradiation

This course is aimed at users of 80 – 300 keV electron beam irradiation who need traceable dose measurements for documentation of the process. The content of this low-energy course follows the same outline as the high-energy course. The special aspects of dosimeter calibration and dose measurements at low energy electron irradiation are addressed through dosimetry exercises using the Risø HDRL low energy electron accelerator.



5 - 7March2018


The National Association for Application of Radioisotopes and Radiation in Industry NAARRI is organising the NICSTAR International Conference on the Advanced Applications of Radiation Technology at the Courtyard Marriott hotel in Mumbai, India
between March 5-7, 2018.

The outline program includes material addressing the following topics:

  • New developments in electron beam accelerators and gamma irradiators
  • Radiation processing of food and medical products
  • Radiation processing for enhancement of material quality
  • Radiation assisted environmental remediation
  • Radiopharmaceuticals for healthcare – Therapeutic and Diagnostic Advances in radiation oncology
  • Radiation imaging for advanced NDT applications
  • Preservation of heritage articles using nuclear radiation
  • Radiotracer techniques for industrial process diagnostics
  • Radiation monitoring equipment and instruments
  • Socio-economic impact and techno-economic aspects of industrial radiation processing
  • Safety, Security and Regulations in radioisotopes and radiation technology

The Abstract submission deadline is 31 October 2017. Further information is available via the First Circular

22 - 27July2018

2nd International Conference on Ionizing Processes (ICIP-2018)

The Second International Conference on Ionizing Processes (ICIP-2018) will be held on July 22-27, 2018 in Annapolis, Maryland. The scientific program of ICIP 2018 will cover the following wide range of topics in radiation chemistry, radiation physics, and radiation processing:

  • The basic fundamental radiation chemistry and fast kinetics in the solid, liquid and gas phases
  • Radiation induced-synthesis and mechanisms of nanostructures, composites, and polymers
  • Radiation remediation of toxic materials
  • Radiation effects on biological molecules and cells, the role of the antioxidants, and low dose-dosimetry
  • Radiation sterilization, high-dose dosimetry, and processing
  • Radiation applications in outer space
  • Radiation-induced corrosion in nuclear reactors
  • The radiation chemistry of new materials for various nuclear reactor concepts

The first ICIP was held at Brookhaven National Laboratory. These conferences replace the former Gordon Conferences of Radiation Chemistry, the last of which was held in 2014.

For more information contact Professor Mohamad Al-Sheikhly mohamad@umd.edu

The conference website is under development and will be available shortly.
