The 2023 edition will take place in Toulouse, the “Pink City”, European capital of aeronautic & space industries. It is organized by CNES, Centre National d’Etudes Spatiales, the French Space Agency on behalf of the RADECS Association and is technically co-sponsored by the IEEE-NPSS.

In addition to the usual RADECS topics, the short-course of the 2023 edition will specifically address challenging topics that radiation effects researchers need to face nowadays, such as Ultra Deep Sub Micron technology or 3D assembly, the associated test challenges as well as the recent evolution of the RHA methodologies.

The RADECS2023 Conference is soliciting papers describing significant new findings or developments in the following areas:

  • Basic Mechanisms of Radiation Effects
  • Radiation Effects on Devices and Integrated Circuits:
    – Total Ionizing Dose (TID),
    – Total Non-Ionizing Dose (TNID)
    – Synergistic Effects
    – Single Event Effects (SEE)
  • Radiation Environments
  • Radiation Test Facilities & Dosimetry
  • Radiation Hardening Techniques (Device, board and system level)
  • Radiation Hardness Assurance
  • Radiation Effects on Photonics, Optoelectronics and Sensors
  • Radiation Effects on complex devices and systems

Best Student Abstract Awards

These awards will be given to 5 student abstracts following evaluation by the technical committee. Only students who submitted a paper as first author can be selected. Results will be announced early June 2023 and Late News are not candidate. The RADECS2023 short course and technical session registration fee of the 5 winners (travel expenses are not included) will be funded by the respective sponsors. The winners shall come and present themselves the awarded work and shall agree on the use of their name and picture to promote the awards.

  • RADECS association is offering 3 student abstract awards.
  • The HEARTS and the RADNEXT projects are offering each an award to a student work related specifically to overcoming some of the emerging SEE testing challenges.



Prepare a single PDF file of an informative two to four pages summary describing results appropriate for 12-minute oral or a poster presentation. The summary must include a 35-words abstract and sufficient detail about the work to permit a meaningful technical review. The summary must be no less than two and no more than four pages in length, including figures, tables and references.


Prepare your summary using the two-column format of the IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science template.

>> Template (.docx)


Obtain all corporate, sponsor, and government approvals and releases necessary for presenting your paper at an open attendance international meeting.


Summary submission is electronic only through the RADOCS online tool, before April 7th, 2023,
Midnight Pacific time (US west coast time).

Call for papers deadline: April 7th 2023

Authors are prompted to state their preference for presentation (oral, poster, or data workshop poster) and for session. The final category of all papers will be determined by the Technical Program Committee, which is responsible for selecting final papers from initial submissions.

Accepted papers will be published in the RADECS2023 Conference Proceedings. Papers accepted for oral or poster presentation at the technical program will be eligible for publication in a special issue of the IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science. Selection for this issue will be based on a separate submission of a complete paper that will be subject to the standard full peer review.

The Radiation Effects Data Workshop is a forum for papers on radiation effects data on electronic devices and systems. Workshop papers are intended to provide radiation response data to scientists and engineers who use electronic devices in a radiation environment, and for designers of radiation-hardened systems. Papers describing new simulation techniques and results, or radiation test facilities are also welcomed. The procedure for submitting a summary to the Workshop is identical to the procedure for submitting RADECS summaries. Radiation Effects Data Workshop papers will be published in the RADECS2023 Conference Proceedings but are not candidates for publication in a special issue of the IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science.
