    Preliminary agenda now available 
    http://cirms.org/conference_agenda.html

    The year’s meeting will focus on Strengthening the Economy and Homeland Security with Radiation Measurements and Standards.  Please visit the www.cirms.org for more details.

    For more than twenty seven years, the Council on Ionizing Radiation Measurements and Standards (CIRMS) has played an important role in serving as a public forum for discussion of radiation measurements and standards issues for industry, academia and government.

    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 areas:

    • 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]

    Those interested are invited to submit abstracts for oral or poster presentations.

    The Radiation Epidemiology and Dosimetry Course is a FREE course conducted periodically by the Radiation Epidemiology Branch of the National Cancer Institute’s Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics. The course is intended for people who are interested in learning about the health effects of radiation exposure. The course begins with the fundamentals and progresses to topical sessions which provide an overview of the methods and key findings from studies of medical, occupational, and environmental radiation exposures. The course material is designed assuming participants will have some familiarity with basic epidemiologic concepts, terminology and methods of data analysis; however, most of the material will be understandable for people with college-level training in basic biology, chemistry and physics. The course will run September 9-12, 2019 in Rockville, MD from 9 to 5 pm daily.  

    Course details and registration will follow.  
    Those interested can email NCIREBCourse@mail.nih.gov

    to be added to the course listserv.  

    Please share the course flyer with your colleagues.
    Course details and registration will follow.
