Penetrating Radiation Technical Event
Tuesday 8 August 2017
8:00 PM - 10:00 PM

Chair: James E. Baciak, Univ. of Florida (USA)

This event brings together technologists and scientists with interests in neutron, x- and gamma-ray detection, spectroscopy, and imaging for all applications. This year's featured speaker is Dr. Rachel Slaybaugh from University of California, Berkeley. She will be giving a talk on "Advanced Solvers and Innovation for Penetrating Radiation." Dr. Slaybaugh will cover the need innovation in the nuclear space to enable new (and maintain existing) reactors, enhance nuclear security, and improve nuclear science. To truly enable breakthroughs by investigating new ideas rapidly, we need accurate simulation and appropriate research tools. This requires new methods in computational neutron transport, better simulation and better tools for penetrating radiation detection and measurement. Finally, this talk will briefly cover educational initiatives bringing an innovative mindset into the nuclear field. After the featured speaker the floor will be open to discussions.
