You are cordially invited to attend the 2022 IEEE Nuclear and Space Radiation Effects Conference to be held July 18-22, 2022 at the Utah Valley Convention Center, Provo, Utah. The conference features a technical program consisting of eight to ten technical sessions of contributed papers describing the latest observations in radiation effects, a Short Course on radiation effects issues with current relevance offered on July 18, a Radiation Effects Data Workshop, and an Industrial Exhibit. The technical program includes oral and poster sessions. Papers on nuclear and space radiation effects on electronic and photonic materials, devices, circuits, sensors and systems, as well as semiconductor processing technology and design techniques for producing radiation-tolerant (hardened) devices and integrated circuits, will be presented at this meeting of engineers, scientists and managers. International participation is strongly encouraged. We are soliciting papers describing significant new findings in the following or related areas:
