Alexander I. Chumakov received his M.S., Ph.D and Technical Doctor degrees in Electronics from Moscow Engineering Physical Institute in 1976, 1982 and 1999, respectively. He works now as a professor of the Electronics Department at The National Research Nuclear University “MEPhI” (Moscow Engineering Physical Institute). He joined the Specialized Electronic Systems (SPELS) in 1989. He is involved in simulation and investigation of radiation effects in IC. He was involved in the organization of different Russian conferences and he carried out three Russian schools on Radiation Hardness of electronic devices. He has authored or co-authored more than 200 publications. Alexander was the recipient of the 2009 Russian Government Award. He has been an IEEE Member since 1996.


Robert Ecoffet is an engineer at the French Space Agency CNES (Centre National d’Etudes Spatiales). For 25 years, he has been working for CNES in the field of space environment and radiation effects. He has participated extensively in radiation testing and project support in this field, led many radiation effects and space environment modeling research activities, was responsible for the development of space environment and technological experiments, and was part of many spacecraft anomalies investigation teams. He co-authored more than 100 papers, mainly published in the IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Sciences. He is a member of the RADECS Association (Radiation Effects on Components and Systems) steering board, and had the honor to serve as General Chairman of the 2014 IEEE Nuclear and Space Radiation Effects Conference. His position in CNES is senior expert in space environment and radiation effects, and he is responsible for the CNES “space environment” R&D axis.


In addition to the main conference, the 2015 Conference on Radiation Effects on Components and Systems (RADECS – 2015) will also feature a Short Course. This one day long event is organized as a seminar around a specific theme, with several lectures providing their expert training. This course provides a unique opportunity to RADECS attendees to benefit from the expertise of the lecturers, their in-depth coverage and application-oriented perspective. The RADECS Short Course format makes it possible to cover topics more deeply than in a technical paper, to provide a way to introduce tutorial material and to place older work in a revised perspective. The Short Course is intended for designers, radiation engineers, component specialists, and other technical and management personnel who are involved in developing reliable systems designed to operate in radiation environments. The 2015 Short Course will offer an opportunity for newcomers to get familiar with radiation effects and for experts to review their knowledge and to focus on unexplored areas. The Short Course will provide a perfect introduction to the conference.


  1. Spacecraft radiation environment specification procedure
  2. Total dose radiation hardness confirmation procedure of electronic components and systems
  3. SEE radiation hardness confirmation procedure of electronic components and systems
  4. Space radiation effects in modern and advanced electronics devices
  5. Radhard by design methods and approaches

Notice! The Short Course is open to everyone working in the field (students, professors, researchers, managers, etс.). The registration can be paid for the Short Course only or combined with the main conference. Here is the link to the registration

The Short Course registration fee includes a CD with the manuscripts prepared by the lecturers.. It will be provided to each attendee at registration, as a companion to the oral presentations of the lecturers, and also to serve as useful reference for members of the radiation effects community.
