The main initiatives taken in Italy by the Italian Library Association (AIB) for the development and promotion of grey literature since the recommendations of the seminar of York and following the Italian adhesion to EAGLE (through the Central Library of the Italian National Research Council-CNR) are presented, i.e.: survey the main Italian producers of GL through the application and creation of international and national standards; evaluate the use of grey literature in scientific communication, through...
A general view of the organizational approach and treatment of grey literature in Italy is given on the basis of literature data (from 1987 to 1992) and personal experience. The study points out the generally widespread interest for grey literature; the existence of different types of producers and different ways of treating this material. From the analysis of data and statements gathered during the survey, different realities emerge: the one regarding the political administrative world...
After a brief consideration of the scope of the discipline and the subjects covered, also in accordance with SIGLE subject categories, a general outlook is given of the main producers of GL in this field, particularly professional organizations and international bodies. Attention is given both to the formal aspect of GL documents and to the objectives they are produced for. The main circulation channels are discussed as well as the databases where they are generally...
Visions for Radiation Dosimetry over the Next Two Decades – Strategic Research Agenda of the European Radiation Dosimetry GroupWerner Rühm, Elena Fantuzzi, Roger Harrison, Helmut Schuhmacher, Filip Vanhavere, Joao Alves, Jean-Francois Bottolier-Depois, Paola Fattibene, Željka Knežević, María Antonia Lopez, Sabine Mayer, Saveta Miljanić, Stefan Neumaier, Pawel Olko, Hannes Stadtmann, Rick Tanner & Clemens Woda
Abstract: The European Radiation Dosimetry Group (EURADOS) comprises a self-sustainable network of more than 60 European institutions such as reference and research laboratories, dosimetry services and companies, as well as more than 300 scientists active in the field of radiation dosimetry. The aim of the network is to promote research and development and European cooperation in the field of dosimetry of ionizing radiation and its implementation in routine practice, in order to contribute to compatibility...
A model validation scheme for Monte Carlo simulationsof a medical linear accelerator: geometrical description and dosimetric dataused in the “Linac Action”Barbara Caccia, Valentin Blidéanu, Maïwenn Le Roy, Hans Rabus & Rick Tanner
Abstract: Radiation therapy has become more complex over the past few years with the use of new techniques like IMRT (Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy) and stereotactic treatments. Moreover, optimisation of the radiotherapeutic treatment has become a critical point in the overall planning and delivery process due to the trend in dose-escalation with these new techniques and the associated risk for damage to healthy tissue. Typically, in techniques such as IMRT the dose distribution includes steep...
Introduction: On June 30th, 2016, the “First EURADOS Stakeholder Workshop” was held at the Helmholtz Center Munich (HMGU) in Neuherberg, Germany. The workshop was jointly organized by the HMGU and the EURADOS Office in conjunction with the 57thEURADOS Council meeting, which took place on June 29thand July 1st, also at the HMGU. In the frame of the “European Joint Programme for the Integration of Radiation Protection Research”, the CONCERT project funded by the European Commission...

Introduction: The European Radiation Dosimetry Group (EURADOS) comprises a self-sustainable network of more than 70 European institutions and about 600 scientists active in the field of radiation dosimetry. It was founded in 1981, and was registered in Germany as an “e.V.” (registered society) in 2008. The aim of the network is to promote research and development and European cooperation in the field of dosimetry of ionising radiation. For this, EURADOS has established Working Groups (WGs)...
