1. Session on Earth and Jupiter radiation belts at EPSC, Potsdam, Germany, 

  on 13-18 September 2009. 

**********************************************************************


From: Nicolas Andre <Nicolas.Andre at cesr.fr>


Dear colleagues,


I would like to invite you to submit papers to the session MG4 on

Earth and Jupiter radiation belts at the next European Planetary

Sciences Congress that will take place in Potsdam, Germany, on 13-18

September 2009.


http://meetingorganizer.copernicus.org/EPSC2009/session/1742


Abstract deadline: 22 May 2009


Best Regards,


Nicolas André

Centre d'Etude Spatiale des Rayonnements


Session details:


Energetic ions and electrons within planetary radiation belts have a

large impact on spacecraft and human technologies. This session puts

the emphasis on magnetospheric processes that are related to the

radiation belts of the Earth and Jupiter. Source, loss and transport 

processes that govern the radiation belts of the two planets as well 

as their variability and effects will be discussed and compared.


All contributions on ground- or space-based observations of the

radiation belts of the Earth and Jupiter, as well as on their modeling

and simulations are welcome. In the context of the future Europa

Jupiter System mission we also encourage papers discussing the

radiation interactions with spacecraft components, instrument and

detectors, and moon surfaces that could help to design  

radiation-hardened spacecraft  and understand expected performances of  

scientific instruments in the Jupiter environment.


Due to different planetary and magnetospheric conditions, radiation

belts evolve and appear different on various other bodies of our solar

system. Previous or recent missions like THEMIS, Demeter, Galileo,

Cassini, Messenger, or upcoming ones like the Radiation Belt Storm

Probes, BepiColombo, and Juno allow a comparison of radiation belts on

different planets. In particular studies related to the radiation

belts of Saturn and to the transient radiation belts at Ganymede and

Mercury are encouraged.

2. 11th ICATPP Conference on Astroparticle, Particle, Space Physics, 

  Detectors and Medical Physics Applications, Villa Olmo, Como 5-9 

  October 2009

**********************************************************************


From: Pier Giorgio Rancoita <piergiorgio.rancoita at mib.infn.it> 


http://villaolmo.mib.infn.it/VOmail_2009.html


The dead line of abstract submission for Oral Presentation is June 30, 2009

The dead line of abstract submission for Posters is August 31. 2009


The conference will be devoted to physics requirements, survey of technologies 

and performance of detectors employed (or to be employed) in fundamental 

and particle physics experiments at accelerators, underground laboratories, 

submarine facilities, and in space environments for astroparticle physics 

experiments and astrophysics research, special applications like medical 

imaging, radiotherapy, software (GEANT4) for dose estimate in radiotherapy, 

radiation effects on devices, synchrotron radiation and new detectors 


Presentations include  the following subjects: colliding beam machines, 

non accelerator facilities, space facilities, specialized detectors, 

calorimetry, tracking devices, particle identification, data transmission, 

data acquisition, semiconductors, medical applications, radiotherapy, 

radiation damage effects and software developments, including GEANT4 

applications. 


The conference is aimed to promote contacts among scientists involved 

in particle and fundamental physics, experimental physicists in other 

fields and representatives from industry. 


Representatives from industries are welcome to present their products 

and to discuss present and future technologies and developments .
