This is a satellite meeting that will be held prior to ANSTT2, a 3 day workshop to be held at iThemba LABS, Cape Town to focus on metrology and applications, environmental measurements and nuclear structure studies at iThemba LABS.  This follows on from the ANSTT meeting held in 2018.

Target group:  Masters and Doctoral students in Nuclear/Applied Nuclear Physics in the early stage of their projects.
Workshop Outline:  

Theme 1: guidance on how to determine the uncertainties associated with measurement. 

Theme 2: the basics of environmental radioactivity measurements. 

Theme 3: A hands-on introduction to gamma-ray spectrum analysis with RadWare. 

Students will also have an opportunity to informally engage a panel of researchers to get advice on matters (touching on themes 1-3 and more) relevant to their own research.

Organizers: Prof Alison Bruce (Univ. of Brighton, UK) Dr Pete Jones (Department of Subatomic Physics, iThemba LABS) Prof Richard Newman (SAINTS Office, iThemba LABS)

Sponsors: Science and Technology Facilities Council (UK) – Global Challenge Research Fund (grantholder: Prof. Alison Bruce (Univ. of Brighton, UK))
