This will be the Sixth International Workshop on Structural Materials for Innovative Nuclear Systems (SMINS-6) organised by the OECD Nuclear Energy Agency.
The workshop will be held in Idaho Falls, ID, USA and hosted by the Idaho National Laboratory. Dr Brian Connolly, Royce Research Area Lead for Material Systems for Demanding Environments is on the Scientific and Organising committee.
The purpose of this workshop is to stimulate an exchange of information on current materials research programmes for different innovative nuclear systems with a view to identifying and developing potential synergies.
The workshop will cover fundamental studies, modelling and experiments on innovative structural materials including cladding materials for advanced nuclear systems such as thermal/fast systems, sub-critical systems, as well as fusion systems.
Five sessions will be organised:
- Fundamental studies
- Metal Alloys
- Ceramic and Ceramic Composites
- Advanced/novel materials
- Evolution of Material Properties
The workshop will include plenary lectures, technical sessions, a poster session and a special panel.
