The 23rd Annual NASAi Space Radiation Investigators’ Workshop will be held July 8–12, 2012, at the Washington Duke Inn, Durham, North Carolina. The purpose of this workshop is to provide an opportunity for active researchers in the NASAi Space Radiation Program to share the results of their work and to explore new directions for research that may benefit the NASAi program. The workshop format will include plenary sessions, poster sessions, and a poster contest to recognize and honor student investigators. In addition, there will be special sessions on space physics and technology allowing opportunities for a comprehensive discussion on NASA’s overall space radiation protection goals.

Principal investigators receiving NASAi funds (including those from the NASAi/DOE joint program and the NSBRI) are required to attend; principal investigators funded by the Department of Energy are strongly encouraged to attend. Although attendance at the workshop is by invitation only, other scientists with a legitimate interest in space radiation research are also welcome. If you wish to attend, please send your requests directly to Dr. Francis Cucinotta. Requests should be accompanied by an explanation of your relationship to the Space Radiation Program and the type of contribution you wish to make.
