Workshop participation

As usual for OECD/NEA workshops, participation is open to experts from regulatory authorities and their technical support organisations, research organisations, nuclear power plant (NPP) owners and operators, NPP designers and vendors, and industry associations and observers from OECD/NEA member countries. Nominations should be made through the NEA Secretariat of the Working Group on Integrity of Components and Structures (IAGE). Those wishing to make a presentation at the workshop should submit an abstract with their preliminary registration form.

The meeting is open to a small number of experts from non-member countries. The participation of these experts will be co-ordinated by the NEA Secretariat.

Countries and organisations participating in the IAEA EBP are advised that following the workshop, a meeting of the Working Group Area 1 on the Re-assessment of Seismic Hazards will take place (10-11 April 2008). A separate IAEA official invitation for this meeting will be issued.
