A training course on "The use of MCNP in radiation protection in dosimetry" will take place in Bologna, Italy, on 13-16 May 1996. The course is being organized by the European Commission, within the framework of the European Protection Education and Training Initiative (ERPET), in collaboration with the Italian National Agency for New Technology, Energy and the Environment (ENEA) and the European Radiation Dosimetry Group (EURADOS). It is also being sponsored by the OECD-Nuclear Energy Agency.

The course will deal with the application of radiation transport calculations using the Monte Carlo method, in particular, the MCNP code, in calculations of radiation protection quantities and radiation detection instrument responses. The continuously increasing number of scientists and institutions using such codes in radiation protection requires harmonization and standardization efforts.

The objective of this training course is to provide training and guidance for applying MCNP in numerical dosimetry and promote the exchange of knowledge between experienced numerical dosimetrists.
