The key event for the Research Reactor Community!

NEW! In response to the high demand for this conference and the number of high quality abstracts received the Programme of RRFM 2007 / IGORR has been extended to three days. Following the success of RRFM 2006, a specialised session on ‘Innovative Methods in Research Reactor Analysis’ figures again on the programme.

The joint RRFM/IGORR meeting will offer a platform for the exchange of information on all key areas of the nuclear fuel cycle of research reactors. Dedicated sessions will look at the design and construction of new research reactors and upgrades of existing ones.

The programme will offer sessions with the following main topics:

  • Session 1: International Topics of interest to the entire Research Reactor Community

  • Session 2: New Research Reactor Facilities and Upgrades

  • Session 3: Fuel Development, Qualification and Fabrication

  • Session 4: Optimisation of Operation and Utilisation of Research Reactors

  • Session 5: Innovative Methods in Research Reactor Analysis

  • Session 6: Safety, Operation, Conversion

  • Session 7: Spent Fuel Management, Back-end Options and Transportation

The conference is organised so that attendees can attend their usual specific sessions and sessions of common interest of both RRFM and IGORR communities.
