The Sixteenth Workshop on Shielding Aspects of Accelerators, Targets and Irradiation Facilities (SATIF-16) will take place on 28-31 May 2024 at the National Laboratories of Frascati of the Italian National Institute for Nuclear Physics.
The SATIF workshops aim to promote information exchange among experts in the fields of radiation physics and the application of ionising radiations in different fields of science and technology. The event will address important aspects related to the modeling and design of accelerator shielding, as well as updates on new and emerging features of the computation tools including FLUKA, MARS, and PHITS, high resolution radiological assessments for large scale areas with automated run-time optimisation for the simulation of deep penetration of radiation in shielding structures, machine learning driven design optimisations, and comprehensive benchmarking exercises. Main objectives of SATIF meetings are to:
SATIF workshops have been held once every two years since 1994, rotating between the United States, Europe, and Asia. In addition to organising these workshops the SATIF group also co-ordinates comparative analyses in between the workshops.
