Organised by the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA), the ATALANTE Conference provides an international forum for presentations and discussions on advances for future fuel cycles and waste management. Previous editions took place in Avignon (2000), Nîmes (2004) and Montpellier (2008, 2012, 2016).



The 2020 edition will include plenary, technical and poster sessions. Technical sessions will include invited and contributed talks.

  • Actinide and fission product chemistry
  • Uranium ore processing and purification
  • Actinide separation
  • Pyrochemistry and chemistry for molten salt reactor fuel cycle
  • Actinide material
  • Waste conditioning and long-term evolution
  • Geological repository nuclear chemistry
  • Safeguards and analytical developments


A maximum of 100 abstracts will be selected by the Program Committee (Chairman: Stéphane Bourg, CEA) for full paper submission. These full papers will be published in an online dedicated issue (AIP), well referenced in databases. These proceedings will be published by the end of December 2020.
