Health Physics Instrumentation Committee Meeting Oct. 7-9

HPIC News:

The 2013 HPIC meeting will be the largest assemblage of radiation detection and measurement experts in New Mexico in recent years.

The 2013 annual Health Physics Instrumentation Committee meeting is scheduled for Monday through Wednesday Oct. 7, 8, and 9 on the UNM-Los Alamos campus (Building 6, Room: 631, Dance Studio) in Los Alamos, NM.

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

There is no registration fee for the attendees.

For the 2013 HPIC meeting we have invited ALL of the applicable DOE sites to participate plus other radiological research sites, NPP (Nuclear Power Plants), medical facilities, and other interested facilities.

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.
