Upcoming Seminars



Seminar on Unmanned Radiometry Systems


2-3 October 2014, Linköping, Sweden


Linköping University, STUK, NRPA and NKS invites you to participate in the Seminar on Unmanned Radiometric Systems – SemUnaRS

Objective:The objective of this seminar is to present and discuss the progress of the Nordic use of unmanned platforms for radiation detection. This start-up seminar is an effort to build an inventory of the Nordic capacity of radiation surveillance equipment using unmanned vehicles and an initiative to build informal Nordic networks within the topic in question.

Envisaged topics for presentations and discussions are: Unmanned platforms, Detectors, Air sampling using unmanned systems, Envisaged applications/scenarios for unmanned radiometry, Methods and strategies, Calibration/validation, Demonstrations, Joint exercises and Future Nordic collaboration.

Background: The use of unmanned systems in radiation detection is an area in which no joint Nordic activities have been established. The technology of unmanned systems has now developed to the point of readiness which enables their exploitation in different safety- and security-related applications.

Please register to the seminar and submit abstracts via email to (phone +46 (0)10 103 1775) by September 8th. The seminar is limited to 45 participants. 

The conference will take place at Stiftsgården Vårdnäs (, close to Linköping, Sweden.

Accommodation is arranged at the conference site for ca. 100 euros/night, single room. Participation in the seminar is free of charge; coffee, lunch and dinner are included. More detailed travel information can be provided upon request by contacting Magnus Gårdestig.

NKS-B Young Scientist Travel Assistance applies.

Abstracts and presentations together with conclusions and future proposals will be compiled to a NKS report.
