Nuclear & Plasma Sciences Society

Committees

atomThe purpose of the Radiation Instrumentation Technical Committee (RITC) is to promote the development and application of radiation detectors and to serve the interests of the attendees of the Nuclear Science Symposium & Medical Imaging Conference (NSS/MIC). The main component of this is to provide the long range planning for the NSS/MIC, such as site selection and choosing a General Chairperson. Other activities include support of the Transactions on Nuclear Science and the Transactions on Medical Imaging.

Membership

Steering Committee Officers

The RITC is managed by the Radiation Instrumentation Steering Committee (RISC), which has 18 members elected from the general membership of the radiation instrumentation community. Five people are elected to the RISC each year; each person is elected to a 3-year term. The RISC manages the activities of the RITC.

The NSS/MIC Joint Oversight Sub-Committee Members

The Nuclear Science Symposium and Medical Imaging Conference (NSS/MIC) is a conference jointly organized by the Radiation Instrumentation Technical Committee (RITC) and the Nuclear and Medical Imaging Sciences Technical Committee (NMISTC). In order to coordinate the NSS/MIC conference site selection, the Joint Oversight Subcommittee (JOS) makes site visits and recommends the conference locations. The Joint Executive Subcommittee (JES), consisting of the RITC and NMISTC President, Past President, and President-Elect, takes the JOS recommendation and makes the final conference site selection. The current members of the JOS are found here.
