International Youth Nuclear Congress 2006

18-23 June 2006 Stockholm – Olkiluoto

The International Youth Nuclear Congress (IYNC) was formed in 1997 by an international group of young nuclear professionals united in the belief that young generation organisations around the world could be more effective in promoting nuclear technology in individual countries if their efforts were integrated globally.
It includes a network of elected National Representatives that cover over 60 countries worldwide. This allows it to have personal (and local) contacts with people who are visible to thousands of people in many countries. There is also the IYNC website that is available to all.

INYC 2006

The first IYNC Congress was held in Bratislava, Slovakia (2000), the second in Daejeon, South Korea (2002) and the third in Toronto, Canada (2004). Around 300 young professionals from 35 countries attended the 2004 Congress. IYNC 2006 will take place from 18 - 23 June in Stockholm, Sweden and includes a technical tour to Olkiluoto, Finland, to see the first EPR under construction and the investigation site of spent fuel repository plus related underground rock characterisation facility under construction.

The technical programme consists of four parallel sessions: Nuclear Science and Technology, Nuclear Waste and Decommissioning, Non-power Applications of Nuclear and Nuclear Politics and Economics. Apart from these four sessions there will also be a session focusing on Young Generation and IYNC Activities worldwide. Over 160 abstracts have been submitted, most of which will be presented (either as papers or posters) at IYNC 2006 this June.

The organisers of IYNC are delighted to announce that almost 283 registrations have so far been received for IYNC 2006. The deadline for early registration is 30 April 2006 (50€ reduction). The deadline for all registrations is 14 May. We are limited to 400 spaces on the Technical Tour, so it is worth booking soon to guarantee your place!
