Preparations for the launch of a new joint project on Computer-based Control Systems Important to Safety (COMPSIS) have made considerable progress over the summer. The proposed project will build on the work of an earlier task force, which collected operating experience in this area and formed a discussion forum to aid regulatory bodies in the licensing of digital instrumentation and control (I&C) systems. The project is expected to begin during the first half of 2004. More information is available at: www.oecd-nea.org/nsd-09-03.html.
A workshop on the impact of debris on emergency coolant recirculation
(organised in collaboration with the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission)
will be held in Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA, on 25 February-2 March 2004.
The workshop will be in two parts: the first part will be restricted to
regulatory organisations, their technical support organisations and national
laboratories only; the second part will be open to nuclear power plant
(NPP) owners and operators, NPP designers and vendors, industry associations,
regulatory organisations and their technical support organisations, national
laboratories and public interest representatives. Active participation
by utilities in the second part of the workshop is strongly encouraged.

A seminar to transfer competence, knowledge and experience gained through CSNI activities in the field of thermal-hydraulics over the past two decades will be held in Saclay, France on 7-11 June 2004. The seminar is primarily aimed at specialists unfamiliar with CSNI activities and to newcomers in the field. The seminar will be hosted by the Institut de radioprotection et de sûreté nucléaire (IRSN). More information is available at: www.oecd-nea.org/nsd/workshops/thicket-2004/index.html.
The NEA is co-organising with the CEA, Cogema, EDF and Framatome ANP a conference on Supercomputing in Nuclear Applications (SNA-2003) to be held in Paris, France on 22-24 September 2003. The main objective of the conference is to promote the practice of supercomputing in a wide variety of scientific domains, but especially in the nuclear field and in addressing "Grand Challenge" problems. The conference will begin with a plenary session on Trends in Supercomputing Applications. Subsequent sessions will include 75 oral and 55 poster presentations given by authors from 25 countries. In parallel to the conference, many nuclear and computer industry companies will be exhibiting their products and services. More information is available at: http://sna-2003.cea.fr.
The next two editions of Nuclear Science and Engineering, the research journal of the American Nuclear Society, will be devoted to papers on the International Criticality Safety Benchmark Evaluation Project (ICSBEP), administered by the NEA. ICSBEP benchmark models are of particular value to criticality safety analysts and nuclear data evaluators for the validation and verification of neutron transport codes and nuclear cross-section data. The ICSBEP evaluation process has had a positive influence on measurement programmes worldwide. More information about the forthcoming September edition of Nuclear Science and Engineering is available at: www.ans.org/pubs/journals/nse/vol/145.html; more information about the ICSBEP is available at: www.oecd-nea.org/science/wpncs/icsbep/.
