The 15th Workshop on Shielding Aspects of Accelerators, Targets and Irradiation Facilities (SATIF-15) was organized by the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB) in East Lansing, USA. Organized in a hybrid format – a novelty throughout its 28-year history – the workshop brought together 129 participants from 75 international institutions to promote the exchange of information among experts in the fields of radiation physics and the application of ionizing radiation in different fields of science and technology.

Highlights of the workshop related to experiments and facilities included presentations on the Facility’s experimental program for rare isotope beams and a tour of the new facility, presentations of new high-precision measurements adapted to challenge and improving nuclear physics models and simulation tools, and new techniques to solve operational problems and challenges.

Radiation physics simulation highlights included updates on new and emerging computational tool features including FLUKA, MARS, and PHITS, high-resolution radiological assessments for large-scale areas with automated optimization of the runtime for simulating deep penetration of radiation into shielding. structures, machine learning-based design optimizations, and comprehensive benchmarking exercises.
