NuFuel 2017
2nd Workshop on research into Nuclear Fuel and cladding in Europe
When: Monday 04-09-2017 09:00 - Wednesday 06-09-2017 18:00
Where: Lecco, Italy
The NuFuel Workshop is organized under the auspices of the Joint Program on Nuclear Materials (JPNM) fostered by the European Energy Research Alliance (EERA) and aims to establish fruitful and long-lasting collaborations between European institutes, to provide a forum where dialogue between experts is encouraged, and to give students and young researchers the possibility to present their work and discuss with specialists in the field.

Workshop topics
•Next generation nuclear fuel and cladding materials
•Separate effect studies
•Irradiation design, preparation and post-irradiation examination
•Modelling from the atomic to the mesoscale
•Fuel performance codes
•Thermodynamic modelling

Abstract submission
Authors are invited to submit abstracts before May 5th, 2017, by sending them to nufuel2017@gmail.com. The contributions to the Workshop can be either oral presentations or posters (with no paper required).
In line with the previous edition, we would like to give more space and visibility to the new young scientists who are emerging in the European and international scene, giving them the possibility to present their work in front of an audience while the senior scientists will be requested to prepare a poster.

The best poster and the best oral presentation will be selected by a dedicated committee. The contributions will be evaluated according to clearness of objectives, results and conclusions, as well as according to aesthetics and attractiveness.

NuFuel 2017, 2nd Workshop on research into Nuclear Fuel and cladding in Europe, will be held at the Politecnico di Milano (POLIMI), Lecco Campus, Via G. Previati 1/c, Lecco, Italy. The city of Lecco, 50 km north of Milan, lies at the end of the south-eastern branch of Lake Como, surrounded by Bergamo Alps. Hotel information will be available on the Workshop website.
