Joint ICTP–IAEA Workshop on Physics and Technology of Innovative Nuclear Energy Systems

20 – 24 Aug 2018
Trieste, Italy
Event code: EVT1703150

This comprehensive workshop reviews state-of-the-art reactor design concepts and nuclear fuel cycle options including design and technological features of various innovative reactors. It provides a basic understanding of different innovative nuclear energy systems.

The workshop offers a theoretical foundation on important research and technology development areas of innovative nuclear energy systems. Participants will learn about modern physical models and simulation codes for the design and safety analysis of these systems. The workshop is aimed at young scientists, researchers, and engineers currently involved in nuclear reactors research, as well as students interested in the field.

Discussions, group activities, poster sessions 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.

Topics to be covered include:

  • 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.

The workshop is organized jointly by the IAEA and the Abdus Salaam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) in Trieste, Italy.

More information and application details are available on the ICTP website.
