Dear colleagues,

CERN is organizing the next RADECS 2017 conference. It will be held October 2nd to 6th in Geneva, Switzerland at the Centre International des Congrès de Genève (CICG). Surrounded by the tallest mountains of Europe and the picturesque Swiss and French landscape, make Geneva a unique destination.

Technical sessions during Friday 06 will be held at CERN, allowing the participants to feel the atmosphere where the discovery of the Higgs boson took place. We will also profit to combine technical sessions and visits of the laboratory and experiments.

Being at CERN for this edition, we will profit from the synergies of different domains as Space, Avionics, ground level and particle accelerators to make a conference including a wide variety of topics. The short course entitled “From Space to Ground and Below” perfectly reflects the spirit and theme of this conference.

RADECS 2017 will provide an excellent opportunity to merge knowledge and competencies from different fields paving the way to tomorrow’s requirements and applications.

Therefore, this year it gives the occasion to propose five new relevant themes to the community here.

In addition, we strongly encourage students to submit papers to the conference since a student sponsorship will be put in place. This will allow at least funding 10 students for their venue, including hotel booking, short course and technical sessions. Selection will be performed by the technical program committee.

We therefore would like to encourage you to submit papers to RADECS2017 and are looking forward welcoming you to Geneva next year.

Sincerely yours,

The Radecs 2017 team.

The RADECS 2017 edition invites papers describing significant new findings in the following 15 themes:

 (New) Radiation Hardness Approach at system level

 (New) Analog and Mixed-Signal Integrated circuits
used in radiation environments

 (New) Radiation effects on Materials

 (New) In-orbit low-cost Radiation Studies and Design (Nanosat, Stratobus …)

 (New) Radiation tests and components qualification –
Engineering troubleshooting techniques

 Radiation effects in Optoelectronics and Photonics devices and ICs

 Radiation Effects in Devices and ICs

 Basics Mechanisms of Radiation Effects

 Hardness assurance

 Single Event Effects in Devices and ICs

 Radiation Environments
(Space, Atmospheric, ground level and accelerator)

 Facilities and Dosimetry

 Hardening by design

 Single Event Effects Mechanisms and Modelling

 Single Event Transients and laser Testing

Authors must conform to the following requirements:


  Prepare a single PDF file consisting of a cover page and an informative two to four page summary describing results appropriate for 12-minute oral or a poster presentation. The cover page must provide an abstract no longer than 35 words, the title, name and company affiliation of the authors, and company address (city, state, country). Identify the author presenting the paper and provide telephone, fax, and email address. The summary must include sufficient detail about the work to permit a meaningful technical review. In the summary, clearly indicate (a) the purpose of your work, (b) significant new results with supporting technical material, and (c) how your work advances the state of the art. Show key references to other related work. The summary must be no less than two and no more than four pages in length, including figures and tables. All figures and tables must be large enough to be clearly read. Note that this is more than an abstract, but do not exceed four pages.


  Prepare your summary in single-column format, using 11 point or greater font size, formatted for either U.S. Standard (8.5 x 11 inch) or A4 (21 x 29.7 cm) page layout, with  1 inch (2.5 cm) margins on all four sides. The use of the IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science standard two-column format is also allowed. (link template)


  Obtain all corporate, sponsor, and government approvals and releases necessary for presenting your paper at an open attendance international meeting.


  Summary submission is electronic only. The submission process consists of entering the paper title, author(s) and affiliation(s), and an abstract no longer than 35 words. Authors are prompted to state their preference for presentation type (oral presentation, poster or data workshop poster) and for session. Details for the submission process will be provided later on. The final category of all papers will be determined by the Technical Program Committee, which is responsible for selecting final papers from initial submissions. Papers accepted for oral or poster presentation at the technical program will be eligible for publication in the IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science. Selection for this issue will be based on a separate submission of a complete paper. These papers will be subject to the standard full peer review given all papers submitted to the IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science. Further information will be sent to prospective authors upon acceptance of their RADECS summary.


The Radiation Effects Data Workshop is a forum for papers on radiation effects data on electronic devices and systems. Workshop papers are intended to provide radiation response data to scientists and engineers who use electronic devices in a radiation environment, and for designers of radiation-hardened systems. Papers describing new simulation or radiation facilities are also welcomed.

The procedure for submitting a summary to the Workshop is identical to the procedure for submitting RADECS summaries.

Radiation Effects Data Workshop papers will be published in the conference proceedings which will be available through IEEE xplore and are not candidates for publication in the Conference issue of the IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science.
