Mihailo Savić and Nikola Veselinović participated at the XXV European Cosmic Ray Symposium, which was held in Torino, Italy, from 4 - 9 September. They presented new data analyses of the cosmic-ray measurements:
- Effect of pressure and temperature corrections on muon flux variability at ground level and underground (M. Savić) (pres)
- Utilization of a shallow underground laboratory for studies of the energy dependent CR solar modulation (N. Veselinović) (pres)
Vladimir Udovičić participated at the 8th Conference on Protection against Radon at Home and at Work, which was held in Prague, Czech Republic, from 12 - 14 September. He had an oral contribution on the national radon survey in Serbia:
- Preliminary results of the first national indoor radon survey in Serbia
Dimitrije Maletić and Dejan Joković participated at the V. TREICEP conference, which was held in Veszprem, Hungary, from 16 - 20 May. Their contributions were:
- Representativeness of the first national indoor radon survey in Serbia (D. Maletić)
- A study on radioactivity of environmental samples from the vicinity of the Obrenovac power plant (D. Joković)
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Professor Ivan Aničin (1944-2016). He was our mentor and a true friend, who had helped us with advice and support for many years, and without whom we could have never achieved what we have today. He had spent last two years of his professional career working in the LBLNP, but he had continued to giving us invaluable advice after his retirement, usually on regular Wednesday seminars.
Prof. Aničin was one of the most educated persons we had ever got to know, a unique lateral thinker and a true renaissance man. But above all, he was a great person. Our thoughts now are with his wife Teodora and son Toni. We will miss Prof. Aničin dearly and though he is not with us anymore, we will keep his memory alive.
