9th Geant4 Space Users' Workshop

March 4-6, 2013

Thank you for coming!

The Workshop was successfully held in Barcelona. Final presentations are available through ESA Indico Server.

General information

Geant4 Space Users' Workshop –G4SUW– is focused on new results on space radiation interaction with components, sensors and shielding analysis, as well as on Geant4-based tools and developments applicable to space missions.

The Geant4 particle transport toolkit is jointly developed by a world-wide collaboration and is intended for a wide range of applications in HEP, medical field, and space physics and engineering. In recent years, space and astrophysics has become a significant user category, with applications ranging from instrument and detector response verification to space radiation shielding optimization, component effects, support of scientific studies, and analysis of biological effects.

Main topics for next G4SUW will include:

  • Single Event Effects (SEE) simulation.Geant4-TCAD coupling.
  • Microdosimetry.
  • Planetary exploration applications.
  • Space electronics and science detectors.
  • Simulation of astronaut radiation hazards.
  • Interfaces and tools to space environment analysis tools such as SPENVIS.
  • Cosmic ray magnetospheric propagation analysis.
  • Large-scale simulations requiring event biasing and/or GRID capabilities.
  • General shielding optimization applications.
