NFC3 Conference

Nuclear Fuel Cycle: A Chemistry Conference (NFC3)

We are delighted to announce the organization of the first international edition of the Nuclear Fuel Cycle: A Chemistry Conference (NFC3), which will be held on May 4-5th, 2021.

This edition will be held as a virtual event and aims to give the opportunity for young scientists to exchange and present chemistry advances related to all aspects of the nuclear fuel cycles.

Supported by the H2020 GENIORS program, the NFC3 conference will be organized jointly by the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA), the University of Montpellier (UM) and the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS). The conference intends to provide a unique platform dedicated to discussions on the latest chemistry research progress and breakthroughs within the nuclear fuel cycle community.

The 2021 edition will include Keynote lectures and contributed talks. Keynote lectures will be limited to 30 minutes (+ 10 min discussion) and contributed talks will be limited to 15 minutes (+ 5 min discussion).

Oral presentations will cover the following topics dedicated to the nuclear fuel cycles:

  • Actinide and fission product chemistry
  • Actinides separation
  • Actinide materials: nuclear fuels and radwaste matrices
  • Waste conditioning and Geological repository

Abstract submission is now closed. 

Registration is open and free of charge, but mandatory. The deadline to register is 26 April 2021!
