MCNEG 2015 and GEANT Workshop – University of Lancaster

Here in sunny Lancaster on the 20th and 21st of July, we are holding the annual MCNEG Monte Carlo conference – a UK conference for people who use Monte Carlo codes for pretty much anything.  Following the conference, we are also holding a GEANT4 introductory workshop.

The UK The group consists of physicists from medical, commercial, power, academic and defence backgrounds. Once we had an archaeologist who dated ancient pottery using its TLD properties. As the teenagers say, an eclectic mix.
