IAEA Seeks Abstracts for Meeting on Radiation Detection Instruments

IAEA has organized a series of technical meetings so Member States can share their experiences with the use of radiation detection equipment for nuclear security, either for regulatory control or public safety; the first technical meeting took place in April 2016.

IAEA says interested participants have until Jan. 26 to submit abstracts for oral or poster presentations at its upcoming Second Technical Meeting on Radiation Detection Instruments for Nuclear Security. The meeting will be held in Vienna, Austria, during April 16-20, 2018.

In paragraph 19 of the Nuclear Security Plan 2018-2021, member States have encouraged IAEA to keep pace with evolving challenges and threats to nuclear security using scientific and technological innovations. To address the request, IAEA has organized a series of technical meetings so Member States can share their experiences with the use of radiation detection equipment for nuclear security, either for regulatory control or public safety; the first technical meeting took place in April 2016 with 98 participants from 53 Member States and the EU and more than 30 radiation detection equipment vendors.

The Second Technical Meeting is being held to build on the progress of the first meeting.

"This meeting provides an excellent opportunity to bring together the users of radiation detection instruments with the manufacturers of those instruments in order to discuss the challenges and solutions to using the instruments for nuclear security applications," said Charles Massey, Scientific Secretary for the Technical Meeting.

The meeting will cover topics such as detection systems for mail and air cargo, active neutron interrogation and detection systems, challenges stemming from calibration maintenance, cross-border compatibility for detection systems, technical and functional specifications, and R&D opportunities. Massey said IAEA welcomes abstracts on all meeting topics.
