Welcome to ANIMMA 2019


Nuclear instrumentation and measurement methods in nuclear environments are key aspects that contribute to the quality of scientific programmes in the fields of physics, energy, the fuel cycle and waste management. Furthermore, measurements relying on nuclear physics now play an important role in various fields of application such as biology, medicine and the environment.

The ANIMMA 2019 is the sixth of a series of conferences devoted to endorsing and promoting scientific and technical activities based on nuclear instrumentation and measurements. The main objective of ANIMMA conference is to unite the various scientific communities not only involved in nuclear instrumentation and measurements, but also in nuclear medicine and radiation. The conference is all about getting scientists, engineers and the industry to meet, exchange cultures and identify new scientific and technical prospects to help overcome both current and future unresolved issues. The ANIMMA conference provides scientists and engineers with a real opportunity to compare their latest research and development in different areas: physics, nuclear energy, nuclear fuel cycle, safety, security, future energies (GEN III+, GEN-IV, ITER, …), environment, medicine…

The sixth edition of ANIMMA conference will take place 17-21 June 2019 in Grand Hotel Bernardin, Portorož, Slovenia.

The ANIMMA 2019 conference topics include nuclear instrumentation and measurement methods for:

    • Fundamental physics

    • Fusion diagnostics and technology

    • Nuclear power reactors monitoring and control

    • Research reactors

    • Nuclear fuel cycle

    • Decommissioning, dismantling and remote handling

    • Safeguards, homeland security

    • Severe accident monitoring

    • Environmental and medical sciences

    • Education, training and outreach
