The Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP, Trieste, Italy) and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA, Vienna, Austria) will jointly organize this Workshop to be held at the ICTP in Trieste from 22 to 26 September 2014. The Workshop will continue a long tradition of workshops on nuclear theory initiated in late sixties.
The Workshop represents a unique forum where nuclear scientists and engineers can get extensive and up-to-date information on the whole 'know-how' of nuclear data, from the physics of nuclear reactions to the production and validation of evaluated nuclear data files.
In the era of vanishing expertise and infrastructure due to low support for nuclear reactor activities, this type of training is important, particularly in view of challenges posed by emerging innovative fuel cycle concepts, enhanced safety requirements and radioactive waste incineration.
The purpose of the Workshop is to train scientists and engineers from both developing and developed countries in modern nuclear reaction theory, nuclear data production and validation, and data use, with particular emphasis on applications in nuclear reactor physics, design and safety. Participants will gain an overview of modern computer codes relevant to these topics. Furthermore, they will be introduced to the online retrieval of nuclear data.
