Thank you for taking part in RT2012! There were 196 participants, including both the conference per se and strong turnout for the pre-conference workshops and tutorials. We trust that you had an informative and enjoyable experience here in Berkeley, and we hope to see you again at future RT Conferences.

Click here to visit the website of RT2014 in Nara, Japan. Abstract deadline: 17 February. Early registration deadline: 23 April. Conference dates: 26-30 May.

The RT2012 Conference Record is on IEEE Xplore (and under "Title History," at the bottom left corner of that page, you can find the Conference Records of previous conferences in this series).

The following information is the homepage as it stood during the conference. E-mail links were disabled at a later point when the business of the conference had been wrapped up and there appeared to be no more substantive traffic. Physical mail sent to the conference address will still be routed to the organizers, or you may look up their e-mail addresses on the LBNL website .

Welcome to Berkeley!

We invite you to the Hotel Shattuck Plaza in downtown Berkeley, California for the 2012 Real-Time Conference (RT2012). It will take place Monday, June 11 through Friday, June 15, 2012, with optional pre-conference tutorials Saturday and Sunday, June 9-10.

Like the previous editions, RT2012 will be a multidisciplinary conference devoted to the latest developments on realtime techniques in the fields of plasma and nuclear fusion, particle physics, nuclear physics and astrophysics, space science, accelerators, medical physics, nuclear power instrumentation and other radiation instrumentation.

The conference philosophy is to have only plenary sessions. Mini-orals will continue to be arranged for posters as in the past. In addition, we intend to organize some dedicated events like real-time exhibits, refresher courses, tutorials, and topical workshops on hot subjects.

IEEE will publish a Conference Record for RT2012—an unrefereed compendium of papers submitted by the end of the conference. Presenters are also encouraged to consider writing a paper for the refereed journal IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science. Further information on both the Conference Record and the TNS is available via links in the left-hand menu.


The 10-day forecast calls for fine weather throughout RT2012. A slight warming trend will bring temperatures into the low 70° F. range (22-23° C.) range toward the end of the conference. Those taking the Wine Country excursion should note that Wednesday afternoon will be warm (though not as hot as previously forecast) in the Napa and Sonoma region, with a daytime high of 88° F. (31° C.)
