Sixth International Conference "Engineering of Scintillation Materials and Radiation Technologies" (ISMART 2018) will be held from 9 to 12 October 2018 in Minsk, Belarusian State University (Minsk, Belarus).

Last 15 years ISMART Conference is being a recognized platform to collect experts for effective discussion of last achievements in the ionizing radiation detecting materials development, their application in detecting systems in various areas: from high energy physics to medical diagnostics and radiation safety systems.

ISMART 2018 multidisciplinary conference allows to combine reports of leading scientists, technologists and engineers on modern advances in basic and applied research, and the up-to-date technology and engineering solutions for the development of radiation detectors.
