ASTM E61 Workshop
ASTM Committee E61, Radiation Processing: Dosimetry and Applications.
This is the ninth edition of our International Workshop on Dosimetry for Radiation Processing. This event will be held from June 11th to 15th, 2017 at the Sheraton Hotel in downtown Toronto. This workshop is patterned on their previous eight successful workshops. It includes lectures, practical hands-on exercises, case studies and follow-up roundtable discussions, with emphasis on the application of ASTM and joint ISO/ASTM standards.

International Conference on the IAEA Technical Cooperation Programme
International Conference on the IAEA Technical Cooperation Programme. 60 Years and Beyond. Contributing to Development.
The mandate of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is “to accelerate and enlarge the contribution of atomic energy to peace, health and prosperity throughout the world”. The IAEA’s technical cooperation (TC) programme is the main mechanism through which the IAEA delivers assistance to Member States.
The first IAEA International Conference on Applications of Radiation Science and Technology (ICARST-2017) will provide an opportunity to review the key developments in the applications of radiation science and technology as well as the ‘state of the science’ in this field as well as revising national, regional and global initiatives for implementing proven industrial applications that lead to socio-economic benefits and strengthen capacity building in Member States. ICARST -2017 also aims to serve as a composite platform through which industry and academia can foster new initiatives for ensuring the success of radiation technologies in meeting the emerging challenges in various areas.
The deadline for the submission of abstracts and registration as participant for ICARST 2017 has passed.
All persons wishing to participate in the conference are requested to register online in advance through the conference web page.
In addition, they are required to send a completed Participation Form (Form A) and, if applicable, the Form for Submission of a Paper (Form B) and the Grant Application Form (Form C) to their competent national authority (e.g. Ministry of Foreign Affairs or National Atomic Energy Authority), or to one of the organizations invited to participate, for subsequent electronic transmission to the IAEA (Official.Mail@iaea.org). These forms can be found in the conference web page.
A participant and submission of abstract will be accepted only if the Participation Form and Form for Submission of a Paper is transmitted through the competent national authority of a Member State of the IAEA or by an organization invited to participate.

4th Annual Meeting of the EuCARD-2 Project
The meeting will review the status of accelerator R&D in Europe and will report the progress and activity of the EuCARD-2 work packages. This will be the last general meeting in the EuCARD2 series, it will concentrate on highlighting the EuCARD2 contribution to critical accelerator subjects as high field magnets, advanced collimation materials, innovative radio-frequency technologies, novel accelerator concepts, accelerator applications, energy efficiency, new accelerator designs and paths to improving performance for existing accelerators.
A preliminary agenda, along with some important practical information, is available on the Indico page

Hands-On Workshop in eBeam Technologies – Texas A&M
The National Center for Electron Beam Research (NCEBR) at Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas is running another of its highly respected workshops giving practical operational training on the use of electron accelerators.
Texas A&M is an unparalleled venue for academic, government, and industry scientists to carry out strategic electronic pasteurization and sterilization research and commercial projects using eBeam.
The Workshop aims to address the needs of the food, phytosanitary, agribusiness, as well as pharmaceutical industries. The National Centre for EB Research is organizing this week-long hands-on workshop in eBeam technologies in March 2017. This will be the 8th eBeam workshop since the initial event in 2010.
