9th International Symposium on Supercritical-Water-Cooled Reactors (ISSCWR-9)
10-14 March 2019, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
Super-Critical Water-cooled Reactor (SCWR) is one of six advanced nuclear reactor systems selected by GIF for joint R&D. Key technology areas in materials, chemistry, thermal-hydraulics, safety, neutronics and fuel development are being investigated by GIF participants and several IAEA member states. The International Symposium on SCWRs is aimed at providing a forum for discussion of advancements and issues, sharing information and technology transfer, and establishing future collaborations on research and developments for SCWRs between international research organizations.
CNS is hosting the 9th International Symposium on SCWRs (ISSCWR-9) in cooperation with the Generation IV International Forum (GIF) and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). ISSCWR-9 is of interest to those involved in SCWR core design, fuel design, materials, chemistry, corrosion, thermal-hydraulics, safety analyses and co-generation.

Global and Top Fuel Conferences 2019
22-27 September 2019, Seattle, Washington USA Hosted by ANS Meetings
Two meetings in one
Global is the leading international meeting on the nuclear fuel cycle held every other year, alternating between Asia, Europe and the US. Bringing these two meetings together will give managers, scientists and engineers an opportunity to share ideas and enter into mutually beneficial collaborations.
Top Fuel is the preeminent international meeting on new developments in LWR fuel performance held every year, alternating between Asia, Europe and the US.
The INSTN has assembled knowledge and expertise from CEA engineer-researchers and technicians, industry and safety authority researchers and experts. As such, courses incorporating the latest scientific and technical developments are offered, associated with technical visits of industrial nuclear plants (Orano).
This course is for technicians, researchers and engineers working in nuclear sciences and industry and wishing to get advanced knowledge in the field of nuclear fuel cycle.
For more information and to register, consult the course flyer.
OPENER Summer School
3-7 September 2018, POLIMI, Milan, Italy
OpenFOAM for Multiphysics Modeling of Nuclear Reactors
The first OPENER summer school will take place at the Politecnico di Milano, Italy, on 3-7 September 2018. Participants will be guided through a full multi-physics modeling of a nuclear reactor. They will learn how to tailor the available OpenFOAM CFD solvers to the needs of nuclear reactor analysis, how to create new solvers for neutronics, and how to couple OpenFOAM to a Monte Carlo code like Serpent.
9th International Training Session: Metallurgy and Properties of Zr Alloys for Nuclear Applications
4-8 June 2018, National Institute for Nuclear Science and Technology (INSTN), CEA Saclay, France
An intensive postgraduate course training qualified engineers, scientists and PhD students by providing a general view of Zr alloys from processing to in service properties including safety concerns.
