The school is organized by IEEE Nuclear and Plasma Sciences Society and University of Malaya and will be held at University of Malaya in Kuala Lumpur November 10th - 15th. Its intention is to give practical experience with developing and controlling mid-range real time experiments. Hands-on experience is very important. The school provides lectures and laboratory exercises, given by experts in radiation measurements with state-of-the-art experience. The lectures introduce firmware, software and web based programming (for remote control), and show how this can be used in different areas of science. In order to minimize the hardware cost Raspberry Pis are used as controllers. This should be an advantage when the students later develop their own systems. The Raspberry Pi operating system is similar to Linux which means that it supports many of the standard Data Acquisition software tools.

The goal of the school is

  • To train students in the area of radiation detectors and its applications.
  • To enhance the development of real-time system in South East Asia
  • To promote the participation of young scientists in radiation measurements and related fields
