Radiation Serving Society

The 12th Biennial Topical Meeting of the Radiation Protection and Shielding Division of the American Nuclear Society (ANS) will be held in Santa Fe, New Mexico, on April 14–18, 2002. This meeting is hosted by the ANS Trinity Section and cosponsored by the Health Physics Society (HPS), L’Organisation de coopération et de développement/L’Agence pour l’énergie nucléaire (OECD/AEN), and the Radiation Shielding Information Computational Center (RSICC). In addition to an exciting technical program, workshops, tours (technical and social), and student programs are planned.

The Radiation Protection and Shielding Division of the American Nuclear Society is concerned with radiation protection and shielding aspects of nuclear science and technology—including interaction of nuclear radiation with materials and biological systems, instruments and techniques for the measurement of nuclear radiation fields, and radiation shield design and evaluation.

We will meet at the historic La Fonda Hotel in 400-year-old Santa Fe, America's most unusual state capital. The city's unique mix of Pueblo Indian, Hispanic, and European traditions provides visitors with an amazing choice of cultural and recreational activities. Fascinating museums, world-class shopping, art tours, varied performances in theater, dance, and music, gourmet dining, and myriad outdoor activities in one of the world's most beautiful settings—all these await you in "The City Different." Here you will experience firsthand the true ambiance of America's Southwest. In April—or any season—Santa Fe's people, arts, endless charms, and legendary hospitality promise to make your stay memorable.
