P(ND)2-2 – Second International Workshop on Perspectives on Nuclear Data for the Next Decade

Organised by the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy
Commission (CEA) in co-operation with the NEA

14-17 October 2014 | Bruyères-le-Châtel, France


The workshop was organised in order to bring together experts involved in nuclear data production from both the modelling and the experimental points of view. Massively parallel computers are now currently used, and they make it possible to perform studies which could not have been considered even a few years ago. New issues have also appeared which challenge the evaluation process. The workshop shed light on new evaluation techniques, as well as on new emerging demands.

The goal was to identify the direction to follow during the next 10 to 15 years. The focus of this meeting was on work that was not presently used in the evaluation process, but that could be expected to be useful for evaluation in the next decade. While this workshop was probably more focused on the modelling aspects of nuclear data evaluation, state-of-the-art experimental work should also have been covered. There should have been no arbitrary limits on the projectiles, the energies or the types of applications envisaged, as long as innovative approaches were discussed.
