MAY 28, 2024 to MAY 31, 2024

The 16th workshop on Shielding aspects of Accelerators, Targets and Irradiation Facilities (SATIF-16) will take place on May 28-31, 2024 at the National Laboratories of Frascati of the Italian National Institute for Nuclear Physics.

The SATIF workshop aim is to promote information exchange among experts in the fields of radiation physics and the application of ionizing radiations in different fields of science and technology. This series workshops are experts’ meetings addressing important aspects related to the modeling and design of accelerator shielding, including updates on new and emerging features of the computation tools including FLUKA, MARS, and PHITS, high resolution radiological assessments for large scale areas with automated run-time optimization for the simulation of deep penetration of radiation in shielding structures, machine learning driven design optimizations, and comprehensive benchmarking exercises. Main objectives of SATIF meetings are:

  • promoting the information exchange among experts in the field of accelerator shielding and related topics;
  • identifying areas where international cooperation can be fruitful;
  • creating task forces in order to achieve progress in specific priority areas.
SATIF workshops have been held once every two years since 1994, rotating between the US, Europe, and Asia. In addition to organizing these workshops the SATIF group also coordinates analysis and proposes action items.

Following the SATIF tradition, there is no registration fee for this event.

A Zoom link will be provided for remote attendance of the workshop as a spectator only. The presentation of talks and posters will be reserved for in-person participation (special requests due to unexpected events will be reviewed by the Local Organizing Committee before the workshop).

The activities of SATIF are jointly sponsored the OECD Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA) and its Nuclear Science Committee (NSC) and by all participating institutions.

The NEA Expert Group on the Physics of Reactor Systems (EGPRS) will organise a one-day Workshop for Radiation Transport Simulation Developers (RTS 2024). The workshop will aim to facilitate exchanges among different code developer teams encompassing both scientific and commercial developers engaged in various radiation transport (RT) applications.

The ultimate goal is to establish a vibrant community of practice, fostering periodic interactions among development teams. This workshop is co-organised with SATIF-16 and hosted by INFN Laboratori Nazionali di Frascati, Italy, before SATIF-16 on 27 May 2024.

The registration page for the “Workshop for Radiation Transport Simulation Developers (RTS 2024)” is online on the NEA website:
