EFNUDAT Fast Neutrons - scientific workshop on neutron measurements, theory & applications

JRC-IRMM, Geel, Belgium
April 28-30, 2009

The workshop aims to provide a comprehensive overview of nuclear data measurements with fast neutrons, their impact on theoretical models and final applications with potential economic impact. Contributions should highlight the state of the art and the new developments relevant for advanced reactor systems. Users of data are invited to present their data requirements.

The workshop aims to facilitate high-quality networking, and international experts are invited to attend. The participation of post-doctoral fellows and PhD students who wish to present their work is also encouraged.

Electronic registration now open: You should create an account, select 'Geel, April 2009' and 'EFNUDAT Fast Neutron', and then follow the on-screen instructions.

The workshop is organised within the EFNUDAT project (European Facilities for Nuclear Data Measurements), which is an Integrated Infrastructure Initiative funded under the 6th Framework Programme of the European Community. The aim of the initiative is to integrate all infrastructure-related aspects of nuclear data measurements and to provide trans-national access to key facilities.

Further information is available in the workshop leaflet[71Kb], poster[101Kb] and workshop agenda[73Kb].
