radiation source alter technology

RADFAC 2017 is a RADECS thematic day dedicated to ongoing research and academic activities in the field of Radiation Effect on Components and Systems. The workshop is a good opportunity to interchange academic experiences, share and discuss the research results in the field of radiation effects. Ongoing PhD dissertations, close to finish, or recently exposed are welcome.

Organizing Committee:

  • Miguel A. Aguirre (Universidad de Sevilla)
  • Hipólito Guzmán Miranda (Universidad de Sevilla)
  • Gonzalo Fernández (ALTER TUV NOORD)
  • Yolanda Morilla (National Accelerators Centre)
  • Fernando Muñoz Chavero (Universidad de Sevilla)
  • Francisco Rogelio Palomo Pinto (Universidad de Sevilla)


The registration is free of charge. All the activities of RADFAC are sponsored by RADECS society, joined with ALTER TECHNOLOGY TÜV NORD and the National Accelerator Centre (CNA)

The abstract submission and registration procedure is to send the extended abstract to the address: radfac2017@us.es
