The aim of the meeting is to explore ways to detect radioactive materials from means other than passive alpha, beta, gamma and neutron emissions and therefore to extend the physical range or enhance the capacity to detect radioactive materials.
Detection could occur via any of literally dozens of non-traditional signatures, possibly secondary signatures from phenomena such as air fluorescence, or indicators such as muon deflection.
