    About the Event

    The 17th International Symposium on Reactor Dosimetry will be held 10-15 May 2020 at École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Lausanne, Switzerland. The Symposium is being organized by EPFL and is jointly sponsored by the ASTM International Committee E10 on Nuclear Technology and Applications and the European Working Group on Reactor Dosimetry (EWGRD).

    This Symposium is held approximately every three years to provide a forum for the interchange of state-of-the-art techniques, data bases and standards for radiation metrology. The Symposium will be of value to those involved in reactor dosimetry, including researchers, manufacturers and representatives from industry, utilities and regulatory agencies.

    The Symposium theme is dosimetry for the assessment of irradiated reactor materials and reactor experiments, featuring radiation metrology techniques, data bases and standardization. Key topics include the broad areas of:

    • Experimental techniques, measurements and monitoring
    • Calculational methods
    • Reactor surveillance, plant life management and decommissioning
    • Nuclear data, uncertainties and adjustments
    • Benchmarks and inter-comparisons
    • Dosimetry in test and research reactors, including accelerators and fusion

    The Symposium will be organized into oral and poster presentations, as well as informal round-table workshops. The meeting language will be English. No translations will be provided. Interested parties are encouraged to visit this site periodically for updates and further information regarding the Symposium.

    Abstract Submittal

    Abstracts may only be submitted using the Online Abstract Submission System. Abstracts submitted via fax or e-mail will not be accepted. All abstracts must be presented in English and submitted by 1 October 2019.

    The abstract should be between 300 to 500 words (max. 3000 characters), excluding authors, disclosures and title. The title should not exceed 250 characters. A footnote acknowledging support, as may be required by your funding agency, is permitted (max. 350 characters). All abbreviations must be defined the first time they appear in the text except in the title. Tables, charts and other graphics may not be included in the abstract.


    Confirmation of abstract receipt will be sent by e-mail, and will include the reference number of your abstract. This reference number will be used for all correspondence. (A valid e-mail address is essential.)

    Abstracts are subject to approval by the Programme Committee and to final assignment for inclusion in the programme as an oral or poster presentation. Authors will be notified by e-mail in early December 2019. Full instructions concerning the preparation and presentation will be included.


    Symposium presenters are required to submit their papers for peer-reviewed publication for the international scientific and engineering community. Publication details are TBD.



    The corresponding author is responsible for informing the co-authors about the status of the abstract. Please make sure that the corresponding/presenting author’s e-mail address as well as full name is correct.

    Authors should indicate their preferred method of presentation:

    • Poster with flash talk
    • Oral presentation

    The Programme Committee reserves the right to decide on the final allocation and presentation method.

    The presenting author of an accepted abstract must register and attend the symposium. Poster presenters must be present and stand by their poster during the poster session.


    Prizes will be awarded to the best poster in each session. All posters are eligible for the prize, no additional allocation needed.
