    Fifty-seven peer-reviewed papers provide an extensive examination of timely topics in the field of Reactor Dosimetry. Also, two keynote papers address: the energy future and structural materials for innovative nuclear systems.

    Topics cover:
    • Reactor surveillance and plant life
    • Nuclear data, uncertainties, and sensitivity studies
    • Reactor surveillance and retrospective dosimetry
    • Benchmarks and intercomparisons
    • Research/test reactor and accelerator dosimetry
    • Neutron and gamma-ray transport calculations and modelling
    • Experimental techniques, new developments, and optical methods
