at KEK Tsukuba Campus ( Kobayashi hall )


Dear Colleagues,

We cordially invite you to the second International Symposium on Radiation Detectors and Their Uses (ISRD2018) to be held in Tsukuba, Japan, on January 23–26, 2018.  ISRD2018 will serve as the international conference of the 32nd Workshop on Radiation Detectors and Their Uses. The workshop has been held continuously for over 30 years in Japan, promoted by the High Energy Accelerator Research Organization (KEK) and the Ionizing Radiation Division of Japanese Society of Applied Physics (JSAP). It has played a unique role in presenting an opportunity for researchers in various fields to gather to discuss myriad topics related to radiation detectors.

ISRD2018 inherits the aims of the workshop and offers an ideal forum for participants from academia and industry, and who are active in fields related to radiation detectors, to open avenues for collaboration at regional and global levels. The many topics covered in ISRD2018 will include basic processes in radiation detectors, detector development and instrumentation in radiation measurements and dosimetry, and applications in fields such as nuclear physics, astrophysics, material sciences, medicine, and engineering.

ISRD2018 is organized by KEK and the 186th Committee on Radiation Science and Its Applications, of the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS). On behalf of the organizing committee, I sincerely extend you our welcome to join us at ISRD2018. We look forward to seeing you in Tsukuba.

Shinichi Sasaki

ISRD2018, Chair of the International Organizing Committee
