The purpose of this workshop is to organise a wide international dialogue between parties interested in developing and implementing remote and robotic systems in projects on radioactive waste management and decommissioning (the back‑end of the nuclear fuel cycle). The participants are invited to discuss possible approaches to developing a common understanding on how to address the main requests of final users of systems and on making strategic decisions in order to support the implementation of these systems. The potential of the increasing economic, technical and organisational efficiency of waste management and decommissioning activities with provision of required or even amplified levels of safety will also be discussed.
The workshop will also address request from parties interested in fostering a harmonised understanding, terminology and approaches to the development and application of robotic and remote systems through dialogue at the international level.
Workshop participants are invited to participate in a technical visit to the CEA centre in Marcoule. The visit will take place on 29 January 2019.
Registration is now closed.
Please note that a bus will be picking the participants up at 8:30. Please consult the bus schedule and map under "practical information" at the bottom of the page.
Details about the centre are available on the CEA web page.
All participants are invited to a cocktail reception from 17:00-19:00.
