The 2016 CIRMS conference will focus on:

A Matter of Scale: Measurement Standards from the Nano to the Giga.

CIRMS Executive Committee has developed a program to address some of the critical aspects associated with the more fundamenta aspects of radiation measurements and standards.

This topic is one that several of the working groups have been thinking about for several years and was brought to the forefront by one of last year's speakers. Speakers will address how a fundamental understanding of radiation measurements can lead to better science in a global environment.

The dynamic and diverse aspects of the importance of measurements and standards in this area will be addressed by international experts from academia, industry, and government on radiation protection, industrial applications and radiation effects, medical applications, homeland security, and other related areas.

Full agenda can be found on the CIRMS website.
