The International Workshop on Spallation Materials Technology (IWSMT) has been the premier forum for exchanging the latest information on research and development of materials utilized in spallation sources and accelerator driven systems (ADS). It has also served as an outstanding venue for sharing operational experiences of accelerator-based neutron sources and the results of post irradiation examination (PIE) of hadron irradiated specimens and components. The fifteenth meeting will again focus on the progress with spallation source related materials studies, the issues encountered in operation and development of high-power spallation targets, and promoting open discussions to encourage new international collaborations. For this meeting, in order to encourage cooperation between the different international communities that share materials-related challenges and to explore synergies for uses of spallation sources, we would also like to invite the researchers working on facilities for high power accelerator-driven particle and nuclear physics, and medical isotopes production.
Coronavirus pandemic situation update and registration
At the moment the committee is holding on setting the date for the opening of the meeting registration due to the worldwide uncertain situation caused by the corona virus pandemic. The committee will be continuously evaluating the development of the situation and update the information on the registration.
Update: As of Jul 29, 2020, the International Organising Committee decided to postpone the meeting to Spring 2022. New dates will be communicated soon.
