Sticky: Health Physics Instrumentation Committee 2013 Meeting

Sticky: Health Physics Instrumentation Committee 2013 Meeting

The Health Physics Instrumentation Committee (HPIC) is a voluntary group who have joined together to share information, documents, procedures, selection, testing, and standardization of Health Physics instruments.

The 2013 annual HPIC meeting is scheduled for Monday through Wednesday October 7, 8, and 9 on the UNM Los Alamos campus in Los Alamos, NM.

UNM-LA is located in the town of Los Alamos on Diamond Drive and University Drive. Google Maps We have meeting space for 150+ people.  Audio/visual and WiFi plus wired internet will be supplied in the meeting space.

The costs for this meeting will be approximately $660 with that being shared by the exhibitors for a cost of approximately $30 to each exhibitor.

There will be no registration fee for the attendees but your indication of your intent to attend would be useful in planning the needed support facilities.

This 2012 HPIC meeting was the most successful ever.  There were 13 instrument companies and 7 radiation service providers.  We had representatives from 5 of the DOE National Labs plus the EPA from Las Vegas, NSTec from the Nevada Test Site, and the UNM main campus in Albuquerque.

For the 2013 HPIC meeting we invite ALL of the applicable DOE sites to participate plus other radiological research sites, NPP (Nuclear Power Plants), medical facilities, and other interested facilities.  I anticipate we will have an additional 5 radiation instrument companies as exhibitors for 2013. 

For DOE attendees this is NOT a DOE-sponsored meeting.  The focus of this meeting is operational and training in nature.  You should treat this meeting as a seminar and be prepared to make a presentation if you have information to share.

There will be a tour of the various LANL facilities including the radiation instrumentation calibration facility and the aerosol testing facility.  You may sign up for this tour during the regular HPIC meeting.

Take a look at the HPIC website for more information.
