Technical Program

“On behalf of the Technical Program Committee, I would like to invite you to attend the 2022 NSREC Technical Sessions. The chairpersons for these eleven sessions will assemble an exceptional program covering the latest developments in the nuclear and space radiation effects fields. I look forward to working with the session chairs, authors and reviewers who will contribute to an outstanding technical program.”

-Pascale Gouker

The NSREC technical program consists of contributed oral and poster papers, a data workshop and invited talks. The oral presentations will be 12 minutes in duration with an additional three minutes for questions. The technical sessions and their chairpersons are:

  • Basic Mechanisms of Radiation Effects 
    • Chair: Daisuke Kobayashi, ISAS/JAXA
  • Dosimetry
    • Chair: Ethan Cascio, Massachusetts General Hospital
  • Hardness Assurance
    • Chair: Christian Poivey, European Space Agency
  • Hardening by Design
    • Chair: Ethan Cannon, the Boeing Company
  • Radiation Effects in Devices and Integrated Circuits
    • Chair: Enxia Zhang, Vanderbilt University
  • Photonic Devices and Integrated Circuits
    • Chair: Cedric Virmontois, CNES
  • Single-Event Effects: Mechanisms and Modeling
    • Chair: Joel Hales, Naval Research Laboratory
  • Single-Event Effects: Devices and Integrated Circuits
    • Chair: Jeffrey Black, Sandia National Laboratories
  • Space and Terrestrial Environments
    • Chair: Gregory Ginet, MIT Lincoln Laboratory

Poster Session Chair: Zach Fleetwood, SpaceX

Radiation Effects Data Workshop Chair: Johnny Pellish, NASA


Those papers that can be presented more effectively in a visual format with group discussion will be displayed in the Poster Session in Ballroom A. The formal Poster Session will be held on Thursday from 1:30 – 4:30 PM and the authors will be available at that time to discuss their work. The Poster Session is chaired by Jonathan Pellish from NASA GSFC.


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 papers can be viewed Tuesday through Friday, in Cascade C-D-D. Authors will be available on Wednesday to discuss their work from 1:30 – 4:30 PM.. A workshop record will be mailed to all registered conference attendees. The Data Workshop chair is Zachary Fleetwood from SpaceX.


There will be three invited speakers

• Ultra High Energy Cosmic Rays in Utah

Pierre Sokolsky, Distinguished Professor of Physics and Astronomy Emeritus, University of Utah

• Dinosaurs and other Mesozoic critters of Utah – A trip through Deep Time

Brooks Britt, Chair, Geological Sciences, Brigham Young University, Provo, Utah

• Utah Rocks!

Ron Harris, Professor of Geological Sciences, Brigham Young University, Provo, Utah


A limited number of late-news papers will be accepted and included in the Poster Session and the Radiation Effects Data Workshop. The deadline for submission is May 13, 2022. Detailed instructions for submitting late-news summary are available on the NSREC website at
