EURADOS Training Course

Application of Monte Carlo Methods for Individual Monitoring Dosimetry of
Ionising Radiation

April 18-19, 2020


The Monte Carlo (MC) method is a numerical simulation technique that is widely used to model ionising radiation transport for dosimetry and radiological protection. A second training course on individual monitoring dosimetry applications of MC simulations is being organised by the European Radiation Dosimetry Group (EURADOS), following the successful first running of the course in Karlsruhe, Germany in March 2018.

The course immediately precedes the International Conference on Individual Monitoring of Ionising Radiation, IM2020 and is aimed primarily at PhD students and young investigators working in the field of dosimetry of ionising radiation.

Internationally renowned experts will provide lectures and guide practical exercises. The course will consist of modules on:

Dose quantities and units, including the changes proposed recently by ICRU
Discussion of instruments, detectors and dosemeters
Introduction to the physics relevant to individual monitoring for photons and neutrons
Application of simulations in individual monitoring for calibration, personal dosimetry and area monitoring

Extended practical sessions will guide participants through the design and development of an idealised personal dosemeter. Reference solutions will be provided after each session, with time allowed for discussions and questions.

Attendance is limited to a maximum of 20 participants, so early registration is recommended.
