“On behalf of the Technical Program Committee, I would like to invite you to attend the 2017 NSREC Technical Sessions. We would like to thank the authors and reviewers for helping us assemble a great program with the latest developments in the nuclear and space radiation effects field.”
Heather Quinn Technical Program Chair
The NSREC technical program will consist of contributed oral, poster papers, a data workshop, and invited talks. The oral presentations will be 12 minutes in duration with an additional 3 minutes for questions. The technical sessions and chairpersons are:
Basic Mechanisms of Radiation Effects, Chair: Elizabeth Auden, Sandia National Labs
Radiation Effects in Devices and Integrated Circuits, Chair: Tim Oldham, Ball Aerospace
Single Event Effects: Devices and Integrated Circuits, Chair: Paolo Rech, Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul
Hardness Assurance, Chair: Jerome Boch, University of Montpellier
Space and Terrestrial Environments, Chair: Pete Truscott, Kallisto Consultancy Ltd.
Hardening By Design, Chair: Mike Wirthlin, Brigham Young University

Photonic Devices and Integrated Circuits, Chair: Joe Srour, The Aerospace Corporation
Dosimetry, Chair: Ewart Blackmore, TRIUMF
Those papers that can be presented more effectively in a visual format with group discussion will be displayed in the Poster Session on Tuesday through Friday in the Mardi Gras Ballroom. The formal Poster session will be held on Wednesday from 2:15 to 5:30 PM and the authors will be available at that time to discuss their work. The Poster Session is chaired by Marta Bagatin from the DEI – University of Padova.
Radiation Effects Data Workshop
Workshop papers provide piece part radiation response data and radiation test facilities technical information. The intent of the workshop is to provide data and facilities information to support design and radiation testing activities. Workshop posters can be viewed Tuesday afternoon through Friday morning in the Mardi Gras Ballrooom. Authors will be available on Friday to discuss their work from 9:40AM to 12:00PM. A workshop record will be mailed to all registered conference attendees. The workshop chair is Jeff George from The Aerospace Corporation.
There will be three invited talks:
New Orleans and the Early Days of Jazz Richard Scott
The Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter and the Curiosity Rover: Perspectives on Whether Mars is Habitable Dr. Tanya Harrison, Arizona State University
The Waters of Katrina: What the Storm Taught New Orleans about its Land, People, and Problems Eve Troeh, National Public Radio
