ENC 2012

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

9 -12 December 2012, Manchester, United Kingdom

Call for Papers

Following numerous requests ENS decided to extend the deadline for abstract submission to 31 May 2012.

ENC 2012 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.
