Ten categories were provided in the conference call for papers: fast reactor cladding and duct materials, advanced cladding (including alternatives to zirconium alloys), advanced fuel, spent fuel and interim storage, concrete, materials under extreme environments, high temperature materials for nuclear applications, atomistic and microstructure modeling, reprocessing, and the Fukushima accident from both a materials perspective and a policy perspective.
The Opening Plenary for DD&R is on Tuesday, June 26, and features an overview of three topics:
1. Advanced Material Development for Reactors of Today and Tomorrow, J. A European Roadmap on Materials for Nuclear Energy Technology, C. Fazio (KIT)
3. Development of ODS Ferritic Steels for Na-Cooled Fast Reactors, S. Ukai (Hokkaido Univ)
Todd Allen of University of Wisconsin-Madison and Lance Snead of Oak Ridge National Laboratory are General Chairs for the conference.
