11th International Workshop on Radiation Safety at Synchrotron Radiation Sources

11th International Workshop on Radiation Safety at Synchrotron Radiation Sources

ESRF - Grenoble - France
30 May - 2 June 2023


Registration deadline: 15 April 2023 extended to 21 April 2023  Register here

Deadline for abstract submission: 31 March 2023 extended to 21 April 2023



Presently there are nearly 40 operating synchrotron radiation sources in the world with a large scientific user community.  There are also several more synchrotron radiation sources in different stages of design, construction and commissioning.  These workshops established a forum where the radiation safety experts from synchrotron radiation sources can meet and discuss the specific radiation safety and protection issues of the facilities.  This kind of dialogue immensely benefits the design, operation and upgrade of the present and future synchrotron radiation facilities and beamlines.


  • To bring together the radiation physicists and radiation safety professionals of the synchrotron radiation facilities around the world in one forum;
  • To promote the exchange of scientific information mutually beneficial for the design and operation of these facilities;
  • To identify areas of improvements in radiation measurements and shielding calculation methodology for the present and future synchrotron radiation sources;
  • To plan and initiate specific collaborative efforts in radiation physics between these facilities.


Attendees are invited to present a talk on the following topics pertaining to accelerators and beam lines of synchrotron radiation sources.

  • Facility reports on new design, upgrade and commissioning
  • Operational experience and lesson learned
  • Radiation safety design and assessment
  • Radiation detector and measurements to evaluate shielding design
  • Interlock system and radiation protection for top-up operation
  • Activation and decommissioning
  • Radiation safety issues for FEL and next generation facilities
  • Safety protection against high power laser used in FEL and synchrotron facilities
