Geant4 Space Users Workshop 2010 (archive page)

Cassini ACE ISS Planetocosmics MRED

Date: August 18-20, 2010
Location: Hilton Hotel Seattle Downtown, Seattle, WA, U.S.A.

Geant4 Space Users' Workshop –G4SUWS– is focused on new results on space radiation interaction with components, sensors and shielding analysis, as well as on Geant4-based tools and developments applicable to any Space mission. The workshop includes some working sessions and open discussions for topical collaborative efforts and for future plans.

The Geant4 particle transport toolkit is jointly developed by a world-wide Collaboration and is intended for a wide range of applications in HEP, medical field, and space physics and engineering. In recent years, space and astrophysics has become a significant user domain, with applications ranging from instrument and detector response verification to space radiation shielding optimization, component effects, support of scientific studies, and analysis of biological effects. The various domains include:

This 7th GEANT4 Space Users' workshop follows events organized at ESA/ESTEC in 2003, Vanderbilt University at Nashville TN, USA in 2004, the Catholic University at Leuven, Belgium in 2005, NASA/JPL at Pasadena CA, USA in 2006, Tokyo University at Tokyo, Japan in 2008 and National Institute for Aerospace Technology (INTA) at Madrid, Spain in 2009.
