The acronym RADECS stands for "RADiations Effects on Components and Systems".

Its activities are as follows:

  • RADECS biannual European Conference
  • Biannual Technical Workshop
  • Promote research activities on radiation effects due to charged, un-charged particles and ionizing radiation
  • Scientific publications or promotion of scientific publications
  • Cooperation and exchange with other organizations (e.g. IEEE Nuclear and Plasma Sciences Society)


The first “Radiation and its Effects on Components and Systems" (RADECS) conference was held in Montpellier, France in 1989 as a French national conference. In 1991, the members of the organizing committee expanded the scope of RADECS to become a European conference.[1] Since then, the RADECS Conference and RADECS Workshop have run in alternate years.

RADECS conferences[edit]

The RADECS conference and workshops address technical issues related to radiation effects on devices, integrated circuits, sensors, and systems, as well as radiation hardening, testing, and environmental modeling methods. Papers from the events are published in a biennial issue of the IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science journal.[2]
