Conversion coefficients from proton fluence to effective dose have been calculated by the FLUKA code for various geometrical conditions of irradiation of an anthropomorphic phantom placed in a vacuum. Calculations have been performed for monoenergetic protons of energy ranging from 5 MeV to 10 TeV. Since no conversion coefficients in terms of effective dose are known at present for protons, this paper closes an important data gap.
