Symposium Chairman: David K. Wehe

This Symposium is the 15th in a series of technical meetings dealing with ionizing radiation and its applications that began in 1964 and has subsequently been held at intervals of every four to five years. Recently, it has been held every other year in Ann Arbor and the west coast area alternatively. The most recent in this series was held in 2010 on the University of Michigan campus (SORMA XIII) and in 2012 at Oakland (SORMA XIV), with a program that included over 500 presentations in both oral and poster format. Its focus has expanded over the decades to include the breadth of ionizing radiation measurement applications and technologies.

This year, the social program will include dinner and activities at UM's famous football stadium, the "Big House," which will be a memorable unique experience to you.

Interested authors are invited to review the primary topics of the Symposium and submit an abstract (for conference publication) and 2 page summary paper (for presentation acceptance) by the deadline of Friday, February 28, 2014 through the Symposium website. Papers physically presented at the conference by fully registered authors and accepted for publication will appear in a special edition of Nuclear Instruments and Methods in Physics Research A (NIM A).
