ENC 2016 - Call for Papers

The European Forum to discuss Nuclear Science & Technology Issues, Opportunities & Challenges

9 - 13 October 2016, Warsaw, Poland

ENC 2016 provides a platform for the nuclear science community to share their experience and to learn about the latest developments going on in nuclear research and their practical applications. It will furthermore exploit synergy among scientists, industry representatives, policy-makers and citizens on wider societal issues that impact upon how the nuclear science community carries out its work.

ENS and the ENC 2016 Programme Committee are now calling for abstracts in the following areas:
