Please save the date for the 28th Annual Meeting of the Council on Ionizing Radiation Measurements and Standards (CIRMS) to be held April 20 - 22, 2020 at the Universities at Shady Grove Conference Center in Rockville, MD.
Note the new location, which is still just a short distance away from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).

- Medical Applications [microdosimetry, image guided radiation therapy, radiation biology, 3D printing, phantoms, nuclear medicine, big data and machine learning]
- Radiation Protection and Homeland Security [advances in detection instrumentation, emergency response, nuclear events, radiochemistry, waste analysis, personnel dosimetry, electronic dosimeters, bioassay and internal dosimetry environmental dosimetry, first responder needs]
