Partitioning and transmutation (P&T) is one of the key technologies for reducing the heat, radiotoxicity and volume of radioactive waste produced. Recent developments indicate the need for embedding P&T strategies into advanced fuel cycles considering both waste management and economic issues.
In order to give experts a forum to present and discuss state-of-the-art developments in the field of P&T, the OECD/NEA has been organising biennial information exchange meetings on actinide and fission product partitioning and transmutation since 1990. The previous meetings were held in Mito (Japan) in 1990, at ANL (USA) in 1992, in Cadarache (France) in 1994, in Mito (Japan) in 1996, in Mol (Belgium) in 1998, in Madrid (Spain) in 2000, in Jeju (Korea) in 2002, in Las Vegas (USA) in 2004, in Nîmes (France) in 2006, in Mito (Japan) in 2008, in San Francisco (USA) in 2010 and in Prague (2012).
The meeting will cover scientific, as well as strategic/policy developments in the field of P&T, such as:
These topics include multi-scale modelling, experiments and instrumentation, novel theories and benchmarks.
The meeting will consist of a plenary session on the first day, followed by technical sessions and a poster session covering the above technical subjects.
At the summary session, reviews and findings of each technical session will be presented by the session chairs.
Abstracts of 500 words maximum using the instructions for authors should be sent before 1 March 2014 to the Secretariat by means of the registration form. Authors are invited to indicate under which topic (scope is listed above) their paper could be classified and if they would like to have an oral or a poster presentation.
Participants will be informed by 1 June 2014 whether their paper has been accepted. Full papers of accepted abstracts and invited talks must reach the NEA Secretariat (E-mail: ) in electronic form by 1 September 2014.
Participants planning to attend the meeting without presenting a paper are invited to complete the registration form before 1 September 2014.
No registration fee is required.
The venue of IEMPT-2014 is Hotel Seoul Palace http://www.seoulpalace.co.kr/.
