Topical Workshop in Low Radioactivity Techniques
This workshop examines topics in low radioactivity materials and techniques,
which is probably the most fundamental part of rare event physics detectors,
such as for solar neutrinos, dark matter, double-beta decay, and long half-life phenomena.
This is the third workshop in the LRT series (see also

NEW: We have arranged for the proceedings to be published
by the AIP conference series. The manuscripts are due November 22nd 2010.
All presenters of talks or posters are invited and encouraged to submit

The workshop talk presentations and posters have been posted on the program page.
Also, in the close-out session we discussed ideas on creating a co-ordination of resources within the LRT community.
Please see this co-ordination discussion document
(in particular the decisions), and also some minutes of the discussion.
Finally we discussed the method for selecting the next
The workshop will be held at SNOLAB, Canada's deep underground astroparticle
physics laboratory, at the Vale Inco Creighton mine near Sudbury, Ontario.
It is a two day workshop held over the weekend August 28-29, 2010.
There will be underground laboratory tours arranged for both the Friday
and the Monday, so if possible participants should plan to include
at least one of August 27th or 29th in their travel plans.
Please see the first bulletin.
Please use the
online registration at your earliest
convenience to participate.
Participants interested in presenting a talk can submit an
abstract to the advisory committee (via the Registration page),
or by email to
before July 15th 2010.
Note that participants from SNOLAB institutes, including students, all must
register, even if alternate arrangements are being made for the fee payment.
