JRC hosts Nuclear Material Congress 2010
The inaugural Nuclear Material Congress 2010 is hosted by JRC-ITU
From 4 to 7 October, the JRC Institute for Transuranium Elements (ITU) is hosting the first Nuclear Material Congress in Karlsruhe, Germany. This inaugural conference, formed in association with Journal of Nuclear Materials and the International Atomic Energy Agency, aims at bringing several smaller workshops and conferences in a larger multidisciplinary event to strengthen exchanges on nuclear materials science for fission reactors, including the nuclear fuel cycle. It is the intention that NuMat2010 will become an international key scientific forum in the field, during which complementary meetings will benefit from a common organisation structure, while keeping their own identity. The format of NuMat2010 is combining six international workshops in three parallel sessions, covering the topics of nuclear fuels, structural materials, and molten salts.
