Thank you for participating in SORMA West 2012—all 562 of you, the largest SORMA attendance yet! We hope to see you in Michigan June 9-13, 2014 for the next meeting in the SORMA series. Their abstract deadline is 15 February.

Here for archival and reference purposes is the SORMA West 2012 site circa the end of the conference.

We welcome you to the Oakland Marriott City Center for the IEEE 2012 Symposium on Radiation Measurements and Applications, May 14-17, 2012. SORMA West 2012, the second West Coast meeting in the SORMA series, is organized by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and the University of California, Berkeley.

Plan your days by finding the most exciting things in your field! Options include

As you can see from the program, the areas for SORMA West 2012, as with the 2008 Berkeley and 2010 Michigan programs, encompass the full breadth of ionizing radiation measurement applications and technologies, with both oral and poster presentations.

Authors who present at SORMA are encouraged to follow up with a contribution to the Proceedings, which we anticipate will be published together in the refereed journal IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science. Papers will be eight pages long in the standard IEEE journal format. The deadline is expected to be the end of the Symposium.

Finally, the New York Times has named Oakland to its Places to Visit in 2012, so read all about it! The "SORMA Social Events" and "Things to Do On Your Own" links in the menu at left will give you more information about Oakland and the Bay Area.
