1. General Call for Papers
Organized by S. Glover, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, USA and S. LaMont, Los Alamos National Laboratory, USA

Description
This category is used for submission of papers which may not fit well into the existing sessions or the author is unsure which session is the best fit. All papers submitted in the General Call will be assigned an appropriate session. If you don’t see a match to your presentations content then choose the General Track within that group or choose 1. General Call for Papers and the Program Chair will make sure to get your paper the most appropriate session.

3. Environmental Radioactivity Topics Track and General Environmental Radioactivty Call
Organized by P. Povinec, University of Bratislava, Slovakia; H. Spitz, University of Cincinnati, USA; E. Widom, Miami University, USA; G. Steinhauser, University of Hannover, Germany; T. Hamilton, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, USA; and A. Kersting, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, USA.

Description
Environmental radioactivity has typically been the largest session at MARC, comprising a full day of oral presentations and one or more poster sessions. Papers are typically grouped into sub-sessions as themes are developed. At this time these themes include the following topical areas that will be further developed as papers and poster come in. If you don’t see a match to your presentations content then choose the General Track within that group or choose 1. General Call for Papers and the Program Chair will make sure to get your paper the most appropriate session.

4. Activation Analysis, Neutron Beam and Imaging Track and General Call
Track Organized by A. Chatt, Dalhousie University CANADA; L. Cao, Ohio State University, USA; and G. Downing, NIST, USA.

Description
