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 conferences.

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 on Earth.

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!

See you in Lyon!
