SORMA WEST 2008 - Symposium on Radiation Measurements and Applications masthead


SORMA West 2008 is hosted jointly by the University of California, Berkeley and the Lawrence Berkeley and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratories. It is made possible by the generous support of our sponsors:


NNSA logo Department of Energy, National Nuclear Security Administration, Office of Nonproliferation Research and Development (NA-22)
DHC logo Department of Homeland Security, Domestic Nuclear Detection Office (DNDO)
DTR logo Department of Defense, Defense Threat Reduction Agency, Nuclear Detection Technology Division


Messages from our sponsors in Portable Document Format give more information on missions and opportunities. They include

  1. A brief summary fact sheet on and an in-depth introduction to the DHS Domestic Nuclear Detection office, plus typical descriptions of technical positions there.
  2. An overview of the Defense Threat Reduction Agency.


UC Berkeley support is coordinated through a joint National Science Foundation/DNDO Academic Research Initiative.

We gratefully acknowledge the cooperation and advice of the original SORMA, now SORMA East, hosted by the University of Michigan and next scheduled for 2010.
