  • ICRM LLRMT 2020
    https://icrm2020.lngs.infn.it
    The Low-Level Radioactivity Measurement Techniques (LLRMT) 2020 Conference is a five-day topical meeting of the International Committee for Radionuclide Metrology (ICRM). INFN-LNGS is pleased to host the conference at the Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso, Assergi, Italy, April 20-24, 2020.
    The ICRM working group for Low-Level Measurements Techniques (LLMT) examines techniques to enable the detection of ever lower amounts of radioactivity. This enables for example collecting smaller samples and realising new applications involving radionuclides. The working group focuses on metrology and the latest developments in a variety of areas, including measurement of environmental radioactivity, radionuclides in food and drinking water, reference materials characterisation, tracer studies and nuclear physics research. It is planned to publish the conference proceedings in a refereed scientific journal. The conference brings together 130-150 worldwide experts for presentations and discussion covering the techniques, applications and data in the field of low-level radioactivity measurement.
