The conference intends to include more relevant aspects of the developement of low background detectors and techniques.
Topics include, but are not limited to:
Survey of existing and planned low background screening facilities
Low-level gamma-ray spectrometry, radiochemistry, ICPMS and other techniques
Radio-isotopes of concern in low-background detectors:
Radon free air, Radon reduction techniques
Simulation of neutron backgrounds
Studies of cosmogenic activation of materials
Application in other disciplines
The format will be topical sessions with a program of invited and contributed talks. The program will leave time for some questions and discussion after each talk, with extra discussion time at the conclusion of each session. The workshop format is intended to provide time for an active discussion in these periods among the participants.
