History of NEUDOS

The neutron and ion dosimetry symposia have a long tradition and attracts many physicists, physicians, practitioners and radiation protection officers. The first symposium on Neutron Detection, Dosimetry, and Standardization Held by the International Atomic Energy Agency at the Atomic Energy Research Establishment, Harwell, England, 10-14 December 1962. Symposium provided an opportunity for considering developments in neutron dosimetry and its application in radiation protection and radiotherapy. For the next 25 years the symposium was moved to GSF Neuherberg, where became an important event on the international map of scientific conferences in the field of dosimetry. Since 2006 NEUDOS is formally organized by European Dosimetry Group EURADOS, who initiate and coordinates the upcoming events. In 2009 the 11th Symposium was first time organized outside Europe, in iTEMBA Lab, South Africa. Proceedings of the symposium are published in broadly recognized international journals and constitute an important source of knowledge on neutron and ion dosimetry.
