The NEA is organising the 16th Information Exchange Meeting on Actinide and Fission Product Partitioning and Transmutation (16IEMPT) on 24-27 October 2023. The meeting will be held at the NEA offices in Boulogne-Billancourt, France, in collaboration with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
The event is supported by the EU-funded PATRICIA project, the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA), MYRRHA and the Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA).
Advanced nuclear fuel cycles to improve the safety, sustainability and economics of nuclear energy are under development internationally. Partitioning and Transmutation (P&T) is one of the candidate technologies to help reduce the heat, radiotoxicity and volume of radioactive waste. Recent developments indicate the need for embedding P&T strategies into advanced fuel cycles considering waste management and economic issues.
To give experts a forum to present and discuss state-of-the-art developments in the field of advanced nuclear fuel cycles and P&T, the NEA has been organising biennial information exchange meetings on actinide and fission product partitioning and transmutation since 1990.

Panel Session I - "30th Anniversary + 3"
Panel Session II - "Towards the Future"
Session 1 - Plenary Session: International organisations and national programmes
Day 2 - Wednesday, 25 October 2023
Session 2 - Fuel cycle strategies and scenarios
Session 3 - Advanced fuel recycling
Session 4 - Waste management and innovative utilisations of actinides and fission products
|Day 3 - Thursday, 26 October 2023|
Session 5 - Advanced fuels for plutonium management and minor actinide transmutation
Session 6 - Advanced systems and R&D infrastructures for advanced fuel cycles and P&T
|Day 4 - Friday, 27 October 2023|
|Session 7 - Modelling and data|
All participants willing to present a contribution (oral or poster) should submit an extended abstract (1-5 pages) by completing the submission form. A template with instructions is available in the download section.
Please note that you will need to log in using your NEA account or to pre-register if you do not already have one.
All accepted extended abstracts will be made available to the participants at the meeting. The official proceedings will be published afterwards.
To ease and harmonise the submission and review process, all authors who submitted extended abstracts before March 2023 are kindly asked to resubmit them (after the update, if needed) by completing the submission form.
All authors are invited to fill in, sign and submit the copyright form when submitting their extended abstract. The form is available in the download section.
Contributions from early-career scientists (aged under 35) are highly encouraged. The best extended abstracts will be chosen for oral presentation and the authors will be invited to co-chair some sessions.
All authors are invited to submit their final abstract (Word file) via the submission form (please refer to the notification message).
All participants (presenters and non-presenters) are kindly requested to complete the registration form.
As the meeting room capacity is limited, priority will be given to presenters (oral and poster sessions).
Each oral presentation is expected to be no longer than 15 minutes, followed by 5 minutes for questions. A maximum of 12-15 slides is recommanded.
Poster size should not exceed the size of a standard A0 (841 mm x 1 189 mm) in portrait layout. Posters will be displayed on poster boards provided on-site. The poster number will appear on the board so the authors can locate them.
No registration fees will be charged.
The meeting will be held in person at the NEA offices in Boulogne-Billancourt, France.
The working language will be English.
The proceedings of the event, gathering all the extended abstracts, will be published after the meeting.
