Abstract Submission Deadline: May 8, 2017


The Nuclear Science Symposium (NSS) offers an outstanding opportunity for scientists and engineers interested in the fields of nuclear science, radiation instrumentation, software, and their applications, to learn about the latest developments in their field and to meet and discuss with colleagues from around the world.

The program emphasizes the latest developments in technology, radiation detection materials, new instrumentation techniques, and their implementation in nuclear and high energy physics, astrophysics, accelerators, national nuclear security, and many other radiation environments. Joint sessions with MIC and RTSD, as well as topical workshops cover areas of specific interest. Within the framework of an educational scientific program, short courses are organized focusing on topics of interest for the scientific community.

Authors are invited to submit papers describing original unpublished work in the topic areas listed below:

  • Analog and Digital Circuits
  • Astrophysics and Space Instrumentation
  • Computing and Software for Experiments
  • Data Analytics
  • Data Acquisition and Analysis Systems
  • Gaseous Detectors
  • High Energy Physics instrumentation
  • Instrumentation for Homeland and Nuclear Security
  • Neutron Detectors and Instrumentation
  • Neutron and Gamma Imaging Applications
  • Nuclear Instrumentation and Measurement for Reactors and Related Applications
  • Nuclear Physics Instrumentation
  • Photodetectors
  • Radiation Damage Effects and Radiation Hardened Devices
  • Scintillators
  • Semiconductor Detectors (Tracking and Spectroscopy)
  • Synchrotron, FEL and Beamline Instrumentation
