Studsvik, 17-19 April 2012
The OECD Nuclear Energy Agency, in co-operation with Studsvik Nuclear AB, the Swedish Radiation Safety Authority (SSM), Swedish Nuclear Fuel and Waste Management AB (SKB) and AB SVAFO, is arranging a workshop on Radiological characterisation in decommissioning and dismantling in April 2012 in Studsvik, Sweden.
The objective of the workshop is to share current practices, lessons learnt and innovation with radiological characterisation for decommissioning of nuclear sites and facilities. The outcome of the workshop will be captured in workshop proceedings and in the final NEA WPDD project report in early 2013.

The workshop will consist of:
Session 1: Characterisation of materials and systems
Session 2: Characterisation of rooms and buildings
Session 3: Characterisation of land and groundwater
Session 4: Software support, record keeping, quality assurance and logistics
Possibility to visit the Studsvik site facilities (waste treatment, reactor decommissioning and materials technology laboratories).
A working group for each session will be founded during the planning of the conference and a final invitation with full details and schedule will be sent out during the second half of November 2011.
