The upcoming workshop on Matching analytical sensitivities with proliferation signature concentrations in the environment will take place November 2-4, 2009, and is the culmination of the iGSE efforts of the last two years, during which several smaller workshops on specialised aspects of the remote detection problem were held.
This next workshop will encompass all major topics: the formation and emission of tracers for nuclear-weapons-usable materials at the production site (HEU as well as Pu), their transport through the atmosphere and environment, and technologies for their measurement and classification. Accordingly, the four main sessions will be:
The aim of the workshop is to provide the IAEA Novel Technologies Program with new, viable methods for remote detection and environmental sampling, and to discuss their feasibility and integration. To that end, the schedule will emphasize discussion and review sessions.
