We would like to invite all colleagues working on the field of "Activation Analysis" as well as "Radiochemistry" in Germany, Austria and neighbour countries for an informal exchange of ideas and strengthening the cooperation. In particular, we would like to encourage young scientists to take this opportunity to introduce themselves to the community.

The workshop will be this time focused on the gamma-spectroscopy, which represents an important part of the activation analysis.


Invited speakers:

Bernhard Ponsard, Belgian Nuclear Research Center: 99-Mo supply status and perspectives

Dr. Richard Henkelmann, ITG Isotope Technologies Garching GmbH: 177-Lu production and use in nuclear medicine

Dr. Rolf Zeisler, National Institute of Standards and Technology, USA: Traceability of arsenic in fish tissues

Dr. Georg Steinhauser, Technische Universität Wien, Atominstitut: Carl Auer von Welsbach und das Neutron - eine unentdeckte Entdeckung

Tuesday, 26 February 2013: The registration will be open from 10 am on.  Talks will be starting at 1 pm. The  postersession and a welcome gathering is scheduled at 6 pm.
On Wednesday talks will be held in the morning and the afternoon before leaving to Munich downtown for the evening event.
The workshop will end around noon time on Thursday,  28 February.  In the afternoon guided tours through  the research reactor FRM II and the Department of  Radiochemistry will be offered.
