11th Geant4 Space Users' Workshop

Hiroshima Institute of Technology, Hiroshima Campus
Hiroshima, Japan
August 26 - 28, 2015

The Geant4 Space Users' Workshop (G4SUW) is focused on new results in space radiation interactions with components, sensors and shielding analysis, and 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, medicine, 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 of G4SUW 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
  • Large-scale simulations requiring event biasing and/or GRID capabilities
  • General shielding optimization applications
