Workshop on Advanced Reactors With Innovative Fuels

PAPERS

Invited experts introduced, chaired and summarised each of the sessions. 

Contributed papers were selected in consultation with the members of the Scientific Advisory Committee. The presentation time was 30 minutes, including 10 minutes of discussion. 

PROCEEDINGS

Proceedings will  be compiled and edited by the NEA Secretariat and will be available bu the end of 2005. Participants will also receive a  CD-ROM edition.  The material used for making the presentations will also be made available on CD-ROM to participants.
