Particle accelerators are continuously evolving and have an increasing impact on research, technology and society with a wide range of applications, which include material science and medical applications. Moreover, in recent years a dramatic progress has been made in the production of new types of radiation, often with unprecedented beam intensities and complex source terms, giving rise to new radiation shielding aspects and problems.

The activities of the Task Force on Shielding Aspects of Accelerators, Targets and Irradiation Facilities (SATIF) are jointly sponsored by the OECD Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA) and its Nuclear Science Committee (NSC), the Radiation Safety Information Computational Center (RSICC) of ORNL, The Division of Radiation Science and Technology of Atomic Energy Society of Japan, and CERN.

The main objectives of the SATIF meetings are to:

  • Promote the exchange of information among experts in the field of accelerator, target and irradiation facilities shielding , and related topics
  • Identify areas where international co-operation can be fruitful
  • Carry on a program of work in order to achieve progress in specific priority areas

Following the SATIF tradition, there is no registration fee for this event.
