“The Influence of New Technology on Radiation Measurements and 

CIRMS (Council on Ionizing Radiation Measurement and Standards) 2005 
Annual Meeting

Oct. 24 - 26, 2005   in Gaithersburg, MD


    Be sure to join us for the 14th annual meeting of the Council on 
Ionizing Radiation Measurements and Standards (CIRMS) scheduled for 
October 24 –26, 2005 at the National Institute of Standards and 
Technology (NIST), Gaithersburg, Maryland.  The meeting brings 
together international experts on radiation protection, industrial 
applications and materials effects, medical applications, homeland 
security and other related areas.  This year’s theme is  New 
technology developed to address advances and changes in commerce, 
research and social concerns can generate the need for new radiation 
measurement methods and standards.  Conversely, new measurement 
technologies can unlock new approaches to solving persistent 
standards needs.  This meeting will examine the interplay between 
measurement needs and technology in areas such as materials for 
radiation detection, devices generating or using radiation, 
information on the effects of radiation and approaches being 
considered to respond to radiological emergencies.

In late 2004, CIRMS issued its fourth Needs Report and many of the 
Measurement Program Descriptions (MPD’s) deal with challenges 
presented by new techniques for using radiation in medicine, with 
protecting the public in case of a radiological emergency resulting 
from a terrorist act, and with the expanding role of radiation use in 
industrial and commercial applications.  Renewed interest in extended 
space travel has raised the issue of assessing dose from high energy, 
heavy charged particles.
