To all Directors / Lecturers 
Please register with the Workshop Secretary in office no. 135, 
first floor at the Leonardo building.

This is a comprehensive workshop reviewing state-of-the-art reactor design concepts, nuclear fuel cycle options including design and technological features of various innovative reactors. The unique course provides basic understanding of different innovative nuclear energy systems.

Directors:  Vladimir KRIVENTSEV & Chirayu BATRA (IAEA, Vienna, Austria)
Local Organizer:  Sandro SCANDOLO  (ICTP, Trieste, Italy)

The participants will receive a theoretical foundation on most important research and technology development areas of innovative nuclear energy systems and will get familiarized with the modern physical models and simulation codes for the design and safety analysis of these systems. The workshop aims to engage and stimulate young scientists, researchers, and engineers currently involved in nuclear reactors research, as well as students interested in the field.

Active discussion, group activities, poster session and various blended learning approaches will be used to enhance sharing of new ideas and emphasize the need of continued R&D and innovation in all areas of nuclear reactor and fuel cycle science and technology development.

In the application form, all applicants are requested to submit a brief abstract for a poster presentation. Only a limited number of contributed abstracts will be selected for poster session. The best poster will be awarded a certificate of appreciation.

The abstract of the contribution should include the title, short description, and cover one of the following topics of the Worksop:

  • Global scenario for nuclear energy;
  • Innovative reactor concepts and fuel cycle options;
  • Reactor physics of innovative nuclear energy systems;
  • Thermal hydraulics of innovative nuclear energy systems;
  • Status of advanced primary components and development and qualification of structural materials, coolants, and fuels;
  • Passive safety systems and other safety technologies;
  • Safety analysis including severe accident scenarios;
  • Advanced reactor modelling and simulation; and
  • Status of research and technology development in support of innovative reactor and fuel cycle technologies.
