RRFM 2007 / IGORR: Research into reactor fuel management
in the international spotlight!
In 2007, ENS and IGORR (the International
Group on Research Reactors) will, for the first time, jointly
organise RRFM 2007 / IGORR. This unique conference for specialists
involved in all aspects of research into reactor fuel management
and technology will take place from 11 – 15 March 2007,
in Lyon, France.
A well-established fixture on the nuclear community’s
international agenda, RRFM (the International Topical Meeting
on Research Reactor Fuel Management) has over the years provided
a perfect platform for engineers, plant operators and nuclear
fuel management experts from around the world to present their
latest research data, to exchange experiences and to discuss issues
of fundamental concern to researchers and the nuclear industry
alike. This year’s co-organisation with IGORR will give
it added impetus and focus.
The response to RRFM 2007 / IGORR has been so
great, as witnessed by the record number of abstracts submitted,
that the organisers have decided to extend the conference
over three days! And what’s more, registration
fees are lower than for last year’s
So make sure you register now!
As far as the agenda is concerned, there will
be extra sessions both on specific and general issues to meet
growing interest in the conference. Key topics like fuel efficiency,
enhanced fuel cycle management and improved back-end solutions,
will again feature high on the RRFM 2007 / IGORR agenda - as well
as new reactor designs and projects for upgrading existing installations.
Another major factor of the RRFM 2007 / IGORR
winning formula is the technical tour programme and this year
delegates will not be disappointed! The programme will include
visits to the AREVA CERCA workshops in Romans and to the Institut
Laue-Langevin (ILL) which operates the most intense neutron source
Make sure you make the most of the social programme
too, which revolves around the sights, sounds and tastes of the
old city of Lyon. RRFM 2007 / IGORR offers food for the body as
well as the mind. The perfect combination!
