The Nuclear Society of Slovenia – 20 years of international nuclear knowledge transfer

The international conference Nuclear Energy for New Europe 2011, which will take place in Bovec, Slovenia, from 12 – 15 September, will be the latest edition in a long series of annual conferences aimed at bringing together professionals from the nuclear research sector and educational institutions, as well as representatives of nuclear utilities and regulatory bodies from Europe and beyond. The 2011 conference, the twentieth in all, will return to its roots: Bovec was the venue of the very first conference, back in June 1992.

Over the years, the conference has become more and more interesting for nuclear professionals and has gained a broad international following. Also, to encourage and motivate young nuclear professionals, a “young author award” is presented every year. In 2010 Laure Lizon-A-Lugrin won the award (see photo below).

The following broad range of topics will be discussed during the conference: nuclear energy in the 21st Century, reactor physics, thermal hydraulics, probabilistic safety analysis and severe accidents, research reactors and nuclear methods, nuclear fusion, nuclear power plant operation, materials in nuclear technology, regulatory issues and legislation, radioactive waste, education, training and public information etc.

We would like to invite all enthusiastic candidates to share their knowledge and the results of their work with participants in the conference. More information about the conference is available at:
