22nd Annual CIRMS Meeting


The 22nd Annual Meeting of the Council on Ionizing Radiation Measurements and Standards will focus on advanced manufacturing and technology. For more than twenty years, CIRMS has played an important role in serving as a public forum for discussion of radiation measurement standards issues for industry, academia, and government. The technical program this year will consist of oral and poster presentations and three parallel working group sessions that address measurement and standards needs in the following topics:

  • Medical Applications [Diagnostic and therapeutic radiology nuclear medicine]
  • Radiation Protection and Homeland Security [radiochemistry, waste analysis, personnel dosimetry, electronic dosimeters, bioassay and internal dosimetry environmental dosimetry, first responder needs].
  • Industrial Applications and Materials Effects [dosimetry for radiation processing, radiobiology, safety and radiation facilities, food irradiation.

Participants are invited to submit abstracts for poster presentation and possible presentation during the working group sessions.

As always, CIRMS sponsors are invited to present posters that enable the attendees to better learn about the wide variety of organizations and corporations that support CIRMS; Limited space for table top displays will also be available.
