Proposals to Host SSD19

Since 1995, the International Solid State Dosimetry Organization, ISSDO, promotes and assists in the organization of the triennial Solid State Dosimetry Conferences, ensuring their continuity.

ISSDO currently invites the submission of proposals from interested individuals and/or organizations to host SSD19, the 19th International Solid State Dosimetry Conference to be held in 2019.

Criteria to be considered by the ISSDO in the selection of the venue include the proposed conference location, the economics of participation, an appropriate local sponsoring organisation, and a proposed budget.

It is desirable that potential conference participation be maximised and that, over the long term, the conference be held in different parts of the world where significant work has been carried out in the solid state dosimetry arena

It is also desirable that training courses, such as the Marko Moskovitch School, be offered as part of the Conference-related activities.

A formal, written proposal for the venue of the next conference must be sent by electronic mail to the Chairperson of the ISSDO:

Dr. Adrie J.J. Bos
Luminescence Materials Research Group
Delft University of Technology
Faculty of Applied Sciences
Mekelweg 15, NL 2629 JB Delft, The Netherlands
Tel: +31-15- 2784705
Fax: +31-15-2789011
E-mail:

Deadline for sending in the application is: 1 June 2016.

A representative of the proposed venue is also expected to attend SSD18, to give a verbal presentation of the proposal to the ISSDO at the conference and to answer questions as may be required by the ISSDO.

The ISSDO members will evaluate the proposals and, if a selection is possible, the venue of SSD19 will be announced at the conference dinner of SSD18.
