Summer Physics School on
"Radiation Exposure and Diposal Options for Nuclear Waste"

Bad Honnef, 5 - 16 August 2016

Pay attention: New deadline for registration!

The deadline for registration will be announced soon!


The scientific field "ionizing radiation" plays an important role in medicine, industry, energy, environment, etc. as well as in politics, public, media, especially due to concerns about the effects of low doses, individual sensitivity, of nuclear power, radioactive repositories, optimisation of radiation therapy and diagnostics, etc. Adequate protection against adverse effects of ionizing radiation while making optimum use of its beneficial aspects is an important task of radiation protection.

This Physics School is funded by ENTRIA and Helmholtz Zentrum München and will provide a highest level comprehensive overview on the present status of knowledge, future perspectives of research as well as on the open questions of the interdisciplinary, highly up-to-date field of radiation protection during 80 lectures, tutorials, experimental trainings and seminars. The lecturers and advisors are very high level, world renown specialists in this interesting and important field.

Main topics

A) Radiation physics
B) Radiation biology
C) Sources of ionizing radiation
D) Dosimetry
E) Radioecology
F) Ionizing radiation in medicine an technics
G) Epidemiology
H) Waste disposal

This Summer Physics School is intended for English speaking students, i.e. Master and PhD students, as well as for postdocs in the field of physics, biophysics, etc. The purpose of the School is to draw the attention of prospective and newly graduated physicists, etc. to the latest developments in the topic "ionizing radiation, radioactive waste disposal and radiation protection". It will include eleven days of intensive lecturing the aim of advancing students and scientists in a career of academic research in this field or in a high level profession in this broad interdisciplinary field.
