Scope

Together with various institutions all over the world, the International Radiation Physics Society (IRPS) co-organises International Symposia on Radiation Physics (the ISRP series) and Topical Meetings on Industrial Radiation and Radioisotope Measurement Applications (the IRRMA series), both as triennial events. The aim is to bring together scientists and engineers from around the world who share an interest in measurement and applications of ionising radiation. Covering the one year gap between these two scientific events, the IRPS also sponsors a triennial series of conferences devoted to current trends and potential future issues in ionising radiation dosimetry (the ICDA series). The scientific sessions of ICDA-2 will include invited lectures by leading experts in the field, contributed oral papers and poster presentations of contributed papers. Participants to ICDA-2 will have an opportunity to share ideas on all theoretical and experimental aspects of dosimetry, and on its applications in radiation protection, radioactivity within the environment and workplace, medical applications of ionizing radiation and other fields of human activity, including fundamental nuclear structure and decay physics research.  

Topics

A. Basic Concepts and Principles in Dosimetry
B. Personnel Dosimetry
C. Accident and High-Dose Dosimetry
D. Environmental Radioactivity Measurement and Monitoring
E. Dosimetry & Measurement in Medicine and Biology
F. Dosimetry & Measurement in the Nuclear Industry and at Accelerators
G. Standardization and Intercomparison in Dosimetry
H.  Monte Carlo Calculations in Dosimetry and Radiation Measurement
I. Novel Developments in Nuclear and Radiation Spectrometry
J. Nuclear Data and Evaluation.

Further information

Fully refereed papers from the meeting are planned to be carried in a Proceedings of the Conference, to be published by the journal 'Radiation Physics and Chemistry.'

For those who have paid on-site accomodation

Keys can be collected from your court of residence reception, Stag hill Reception/ University Court, open from 8am to 7pm Monday to Friday and from 8am to 12 noon on Saturday. Outside of these times keys can be collected from the Security Office in Senate House. Please see the campus map for directions. Access to bedrooms is not guaranteed before 3pm and you are requested to vacate your room by 9am on your day of departure. Delegates will be charged for keys not returned. 

For those who have paid for breakfast as well as accommodation, breakfast will be served at the Hill Side Restaurant. Note that for this service you will need to wear the identity tags that will be provided to you at the ICDA2 registration desk, starting from Sunday 3rd July just prior to the Reception.

Venue information

For those who have yet to make onsite accommodation arrangements for the conference period please note that we will not be able to provide any additional rooms after 9 May. 

The conference will be organised by the University of Surrey in collaboration with the UK National Physical Laboratory (NPL) and will be held at the Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences at the University of Surrey. Situated in a gap in the North Downs (a part of the Surrey Hills), Guildford forms the south-western tip of the Greater London Built-up Area and is a small market town, a little over 40 km southwest of central London, lying mid-way between the capital and the naval town of Portsmouth (both of which are easily accessed by rail).

Guildford is located within a short walking distance of the University and the mainline railway station (via which London is an approximate 40 minute journey away). Attending the conference will not only offer an opportunity to enjoy a full scientific programme, including discussions of state-of-the-art developments by leading figures, but will also provide a chance to discover the beauties of the town of Guildford and its surroundings, as well as London, its valuable historical monuments and rich cultural and social life.

Submission of abstracts

Papers are solicited in the areas listed under the heading “Topics”. The Programme Committee is entitled to allocate submitted papers to oral and poster sessions according to authors’ wishes and according to the possibilities of the time schedule of the conference, and to refuse papers which are outside the scope of the conference or which are of apparently insufficiently high quality. Abstracts of papers should be prepared according to the abstract template (docx).

A Book of Abstracts will be provided at the conference registration, together with other conference documentation. The text of papers recommended by the standard refereeing process are to be published in the conference proceedings, expected to be a special issue of the journal Radiation Physics and Chemistry. Instructions for preparation will be sent to authors of accepted abstracts, together with information about acceptance.

Registration

Registration is now open for the conference, book here through the University's online store.
