9th International Topical Meeting on
Industrial Radiation and Radioisotope Measurement Applications

Valencia (Spain), 6-11 July 2014


The International Topical Meeting on Industrial Radiation and Radioisotope Measurement Applications (IRRMA) is a triennial event organised with the purpose of bringing together scientists and engineers from around the world who share an interest in radiation and radioisotope measurement applications. Professor Robin P. Gardner of North Carolina State University was the founder of the IRRMA series of topical meetings and chaired the first and fourth meetings. The first meeting in this series took place in Pinehurst, North Carolina, U. S. A. in 1988. The following three conferences were organized also in North Carolina, respectively in 1992, 1996, and 1999. The fifth meeting was held in Bologna (Italy) in 2002 organized by Alma Mater Studiorum, University of Bologna. IRRMA-6 was organized by the University of McMaster in Hamilton (Canada), 2005. Crossing again the Atlantic IRRMA-7 was organized by the Czech Technical University in Prague, 2008. Back to America, IRRMA-8 was organized by the Kansas State University and held in Kansas City (Missouri), 2011.

The IRRMA-9 meeting will be organised by the Department of Nuclear and Chemical Engineering of the Polytechnic University of Valencia (DIQN-UPV) and the Institute for Industrial, Radiophysical and Environmental Safety (ISIRYM). It will be held at the Universidad Politécnica de Valencia (UPV) in Valencia (Spain) from 6 to 11 July 2014.

It is devoted to current trends and potential future issues involving radiation and radioisotopes. The technical sessions will include invited lectures by leading experts in their fields, contributed oral papers and poster presentations of contributed papers. Attendees will have an opportunity to share ideas on industrial uses of radiation and radioisotopes, and also on research and applications in related fields such as Biomedical Applications of Radiation, Art and Cultural Heritage, Monte Carlo Methods and Models, Radiation in Environmental Sciences, Detection of Threat Material and Contraband, Radiation Protection, Shielding and Dosimetry, Radiation Effects on Materials, Radiation Detection and Measurements, and other topics.
