Particle accelerators have evolved over the last decades from simple devices to powerful machines and are having an increasingly important impact on research, technology and lifestyle. Today they cover a wide range of applications including Material Science and medical applications. In recent years, requirements from new technological and research applications have emerged and the number of accelerator facilities in operation, being commissioned, designed or planned has significantly increased. Their parameters (such as the beam energy, beam currents and intensities, targets composition, etc.) vary widely giving rise to new radiation shielding aspects and problems. 

The activities of the Expert Group on Shielding Aspects of Accelerators, Targets and Irradiation Facilities (SATIF) are sponsored by the Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA) and its Nuclear Science Committee (NSC) and co-sponsored by the Radiation Safety Information Computational Center (RSICC) and the Division of Radiation Science and Technology of the Atomic Society of Japan. The main objectives of SATIF meetings are to: 

In this context, and on behalf of its Scientific and Organising Committee, we announce that the Ninth Workshop on Shielding Aspects of Accelerators, Targets and Irradiation Facilities (SATIF-9) took place at the ORNL Spallation Neutron Source from 21-23 April 2008.
