R&D activities and construction plans related to high power proton accelerators (HPPAs) are being considered in various countries to promote basic and applied sciences. These include accelerator-driven nuclear energy systems (ADS). The performance of such hybrid nuclear systems depends to a large extent on the specification and reliability of the particle accelerator.
The present meeting was a follow-up to the fourth international workshop on the Utilisation and Reliability of High Power Proton Accelerators, hosted by the Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute (KAERI) and held in Daejon, Republic of Korea in 2004. Many of the questions discussed at the workshop in Korea were further developed during this meeting.
After the opening presentations, a session devoted to MEGAPIE was held, followed by a series of technical sessions with invited speakers and contributed papers.
Detailed programme (pdf, 25 kb).
Presentation materials (Password required).
All presented papers will be included in the proceedings, which will be published by the NEA shortly after the meeting. Authors are requested to submit their full papers formatted according to NEA standards. Please note that papers that were not received by 6 May 2007 risk being omitted from the proceedings.
