Montpellier, France


The RADECS2019 conference features a full-day short course, a technical program including oral and poster presentations, a radiation effects data workshop and an industrial exhibit. The technical program will be held from September 17th to September 20th.

The RADECS 2019 Conference is soliciting papers describing significant new findings or developments in the following areas:

    • Basic Mechanisms of Radiation Effects
      Ionizing dose – Non ionizing dose/Displacement damage – Effects on materials & advanced device structures – Radiation transport, energy deposition and dosimetry – Cryogenic or high temperature effects.
    • Radiation Effects on Devices & ICs
      Ionizing dose – Non ionizing dose/Displacement damage – Synergy with Single Event Effects – Modelling and characterization of devices, circuits and systems responses.
    • Single Event Effects: Mechanisms & Modelling
      Single-Event charge collection phenomena and mechanisms – Modelling at device, circuit or system level.
    • Single Event Effects: Devices & ICs
      Single-Event Effects specific modelling and characterization of devices, circuits and systems – Rate prediction.
    • Photonics, Optoelectronics & Sensors
      Optoelectronic and optical materials, devices and systems – Sensors – MEMs.
    • Hardening Techniques
      Methods for hardened design and/or manufacturing at component, circuit and system level.
    • Radiation Hardness Assurance
      New testing techniques – Hardness assurance methodology – Low cost RHA – COTS qualification – Field return.
    • Radiation Environments
      Space environments and weather – Atmospheric and ground-level environments – Accelerator, medical and nuclear environments – Characterization and modelling – In-flight experiments.
    • Facilities and Dosimetry
      Radiation exposure facilities – Instrumentation methods – Dosimetry.
    • Evaluation/qualification data with complete identification of tested devices.

Important dates:

  • Submission deadline: April 15th, 2019
  • Notification of acceptance: June 17th, 2019
  • Final paper due: September 9th, 2019

Paper submission instructions

  1. Prepare a single PDF file of an informative two to four pages summary describing results appropriate for 12-minute oral or a poster presentation. The summary must include a 35-words abstract and sufficient detail about the work to permit a meaningful technical review. The summary must be no less than two and no more than four pages in length, including figures, tables and references.
  2. Prepare your summary using the two-column format of the IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science template.
  3. Obtain all corporate, sponsor, and government approvals and releases necessary for presenting your paper at an open attendance international meeting.
  4. Summary submission is electronic only through the RADOCS online tool before April 15th, 2019, midnight (Paris time). Authors are prompted to state their preference for presentation (oral, poster, or data workshop poster) and for session. The final category of all papers will be determined by the Technical Program Committee, which is responsible for selecting accepted papers from initial submissions.

Accepted papers will be published in the RADECS2019 Conference Proceedings.

Papers accepted for oral or poster presentation at the conference will also be eligible for publication in a special issue of the IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science. Selection for this issue will be based on a separate submission of a complete paper that will be subject to the standard full peer review.

RADECS Student Grant

For the first time this year, the RADECS Association will deliver several RADECS Student Grants to cover Short Course and Technical Sessions registration fees for students who submitted a paper as first author. Selection of the beneficiaries will be performed among submitted student papers by the RADECS2019 Technical Committee and the RADECS Association Steering Committee, and results will be announced by the middle of June 2019.
