CIRMS 2019 Annual Meeting

The 27th Annual Meeting of the Council on Ionizing Radiation Measurements and Standards will focus on Strengthening the Economy and Homeland Security with Radiation Measurements and Standards.

The technical program will consist of oral and poster presentations and three 
parallel working group sessions that address measurement and standards needs in the following 

  • Medical Applications [microdosimetry, image guided radiation therapy, radiation biology, 3D printing, phantoms, nuclear medicine, big data and machine learning]
  • Radiation Protection and Homeland Security [advances in detection instrumentation, emergency response, nuclear events, radiochemistry, waste analysis, personnel dosimetry, electronic dosimeters, bioassay and internal dosimetry environmental dosimetry, first responder needs]
  • Industrial Applications and Materials Effects [radiation processing, material effects, space applications, food irradiation and sterilization, irradiators, low dose standards, safety at radiation facilities, ASTM standards]

The full program including abstracts will be available online and for download in PDF format at a latter date.
