International Workshop “Towards nuclear fuel modelling in the various reactor types across Europe”

September 27 - October 2, 2009

The workshop aims at exchanging experience and knowledge in fuel performance analysis for West and East European nuclear reactors, as well as discussing the experimental results used for development and validation of fuel performance codes. It coincides with the bi-annual meeting of the institutional network TUNet, bringing together representatives from the nuclear industry, research and licensing organizations. Participants will mainly come from EU member states, and are involved in the development, validation and application of the code.

Preliminary programme


The workshop will be organised jointly by ITU and INRNE in Helena Resort near Burgas (Bulgaria), which is in the north part of the Sunny Beach Bay. The place of the meeting will be the two 5 star hotels Helena Park with a Conference Hall inside, and Helena Sands. Both hotels will be the accommodation place of the participants of the 8th Conference on WWER Performance, Modelling and Experimental Support, 26 September - 04 October 2009, which is organised by INRNE in co-operation with the IAEA.


The WWER conference organisers have reserved rooms in the hotels mentioned above. Participants for the workshop should therefore register and pay for the WWER conference separately.
