18th Workshop on Radiation Monitoring for the International Space Station
The Workshop on Radiation Monitoring for the International Space Station (WRMISS) has been held annually since 1996. The major purpose of WRMISS is to provide a forum for discussion on technical issues concerning radiation dosimetry aboard the International Space Station and other spacecraft. This includes discussion of new results, improved instrumentation, detector calibration, and radiation environment and transport models. The goal of WRMISS is to enhance international efforts to provide the best information on the space radiation environment in low-Earth orbit and on the exposure of astronauts and cosmonauts in order to optimize the radiation safety of space crew.
The 18th Annual WRMISS is organized by the Hungarian Academy of Sciences Centre for Energy Research (MTA EK) and hosted by Hotel Novotel Budapest Danube on September 3-5, 2013.
