Shielding Aspects of Accelerators, Targets and Irradiation Facilities (SATIF 5), Workshop Proceedings, Paris-France 18-21 July 2000, Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development and Nuclear Energy Agency

Abstract
Over the last 50 years particle accelerators have evolved from simple devices to powerful machines, and will continue to have an important impact on research, technology and lifestyle. Today, they cover a wide range of applications, from television and computer displays in households to investigating the origin and structure of matter. It has become common practice to use particle accelerators for material science and medical applications. In recent years, requirements from new technological and research applications have emerged, giving rise to new radiation shielding aspects and problems. These workshop proceedings review recent progress in radiation shielding of accelerator facilities, evaluating advancements and discussing further developments needed with respect to international co-operation in this field
