Press release date: May 11, 2010

W. CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa., -Papers are invited for the 14th International Symposium on Reactor Dosimetry, which will be held May 22-27, 2011, at the OMNI Mount Washington Resort in Bretton Woods, N.H. Jointly sponsored and organized by ASTM International Committee E10 on Nuclear Technology and Applications and the European Working Group on Reactor Dosimetry, this symposium is held approximately every three years to provide a forum for the interchange of state-of-the-art techniques, data, and standardization of radiation metrology.

The symposium theme is dosimetry for the assessment of irradiated reactor materials and reactor experiments, featuring radiation metrology techniques, databases and standardization. Under this theme, papers are solicited for presentation in the following areas:

Reactor surveillance and plant-life management;
Data evaluation, uncertainty analysis and adjustment methods;
Retrospective dosimetry and decommissioning;
Dosimetry for assessment of reactor structural materials;
Neutron and gamma-ray transport calculations;
Dosimetry for core characterization and reactor physics;
Characterization of neutron and gamma-ray environments;
Damage correlation and exposure parameters;
Monitoring of irradiation experiments;
Nuclear data for dosimetry;
Benchmarking, calibrations and standards;
Fusion and high-energy neutrons;
Dosimetry for advanced reactor concepts;
Neutron sources (reactor and accelerator);
Irradiation processing and testing of electronics;
Experimental techniques, new developments and optical methods; and
Dosimetry for space nuclear power.

Papers in these and other areas are expected to cover such applications as fission and fusion energy research and experiments at test reactors and research facilities. Please note that Health Physics papers are outside the scope of this symposium and will not be considered for acceptance. The symposium will be organized into oral and poster presentations, as well as informal roundtable workshops.
