March 12-16, 2018 – KIT Karlsruhe, Germany
The Monte Carlo method is a numerical simulation technique that is widely used to simulate transport of ionizing radiation. A Training Course on computational dosimetry applications of MC simulations for PhD students and young investigators working in the field of dosimetry of ionizing radiation is organized by the European Radiation Dosimetry Group (EURADOS) and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). International renown experts will provide lectures and guide practical exercises. Attendance is thus limited to a maximum of 30 participants. The course is supported by the European Joint Programme for the Integration of Radiation Protection Research (CONCERT) and consists of
- one basis module (3 days) presenting fundamentals required for computational dosimetry applications, namely voxel phantom development and implementation for radiation physics calculations, and
- two applications modules (2 days) on
- (1) individual monitoring and
- (2) in-vivo counting.
