The fourth symposium of the Generation IV International Forum (GIF) took place on 16-17 October 2018 in Paris, jointly held in association with the Atoms for the Future 2018 Conference organised by the French Nuclear Society Young Generation Network. The call for papers for this year's symposium attracted nearly 100 papers, half of which were presented during technical sessions. The event, which brought together over 300 participants, also featured plenary sessions on the development of advanced reactors, the benefits of early engagement with regulators, the role of innovation, and the status of demonstration projects. It was followed by a meeting of the GIF Policy Group, during which the outgoing Chair Mr François Gauché of the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA) welcomed the ratification of the GIF Framework Agreement by the United Kingdom. The Group elected Mr Hideki Kamide of the Japan Atomic Energy Agency as its Chairman for the 2019-2021 period.
