Abstract

Radiation Physics” covers a very broad spectrum of research. It certainly includes
everything done with synchrotron radiation but extends far beyond that. Thus this conference, which attracted nearly 200 participants from all over the world to the University of Melbourne (Australia) on September 20-25, 2009,
not only embraced synchrotron radiation’s close family relatives, such as neutron scattering studies, but also distant members of the radiation physics family tree. It grappled with topics as diverse as WIMPS (weakly interaction massive particles) in the hunt for dark matter, radiation-based inspection methods for border security, aspects of nuclear power production, radiotherapy, dosimetry, etc. However, the fact that the meeting contained a very large proportion of synchrotron radiation research reflected the rapid growth and diversification of synchrotron studies worldwide in the spectrum of radiation physics. In fact synchrotron science occupied center stage to a greater extent than in previous conferences in this series, proving that synchrotron science is
pervading more and more fields of research.
