Ionising Radiation and Protection of Man
10 – 19 August 2012
Physikzentrum Bad Honnef, Germany
Prof. Dr. Werner Rühm, HMGU Neuherberg and LMU Munich
Prof. Dr. George Iliakis, University Duisburg-Essen
Prof. Dr. Rolf Michel, Leibniz University Hanover
Prof. Dr. Herwig G. Paretzke, HMGU Neuherberg and TU Munich (Consultant)

High level international experts will give a comprehensive, detailed
overview on recent progress, research perspectives and approaches to
solve open questions in the exciting interdisciplinary field of radiation
protection research in 70 lectures and seminars.

This Advanced WE-Heraeus Physics School is intended for diploma, master
and PhD students, and for postdocs in the field of physics, biophysics,
medical physics, and other radiation sciences. The purpose of this school is
to draw the attention of prospective and newly graduated scientists to the
latest developments in the field of ionising radiation and radiation protection.
The language of the school is English.

After one day of refresher courses on Ionising Radiation and Radiation
Protection this Advanced WE-Heraeus Physics School will be focused on the
A) Radiation Transport and Track Structure Simulation
B) Radiation Systems Biology
C) The Fukushima Accident and its Radiological Consequences
