Research Reactor Fuel Management, RRFM 2005

Topical meeting on Research Reactor Fuel Management (RRFM): Simply unmissable!

Deadline for submission of papers for RRFM 2005 is October 1st, 2004

With a turnout of 174 participants from 24 countries, the 8th International Topical Meeting on Research Reactor Fuel Management – RRFM 2004 - held in March earlier this year was resounding success, just like its predecessors. RRFM has become an unmissable event in the field of the research reactor fuel cycle ever since its first edition in 1997. The two-day conference offers researchers and decision-makers a forum to exchange state-of-the-art information on all significant aspects of the fuel cycle of research reactors.

Preparations for the 9th conference on 10-13 April 2005 are already in full swing. RRFM continues to follow the latest developments - also politically! It is now moving to Central Europe for the first time, following the pattern of EU enlargement. The brand-new Hungarian member of the European Union will host the 2005 conference. The splendours of its capital Budapest, aptly called the Pearl of the Danube, will delight you after conference hours.

The conference programme will focus on four main areas:

  • international topics and education

  • fuel development, qualification, fabrication and licensing

  • reactor operation, fuel safety and core conversion

  • spent fuel management, back-end options and transportation

Alongside the invited presentations, a great number of programme slots are reserved for contributions from delegates. Don't hesitate to share your ideas and challenges with the RRFM audience by proposing an oral or a poster presentation! The deadline is Friday, October 1st. You will find the Call for Papers on

Last but not least, RRFM 2005 will feature an industrial exhibition, providing a perfect, targeted platform for your company to display its services and reinforce its market position. The exhibition will be conveniently located in the conference foyer and guarantees maximum visibility and networking opportunities. For futher details, please refer to
