Oxford, October 10, 2011 - Elsevier, the word-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, announces the Progress in Nuclear Energy and Education Conference, to be held in London 20 - 22 March, 2012.
The conference, organized by Elsevier in association with the Dalton Nuclear Institute Manchester and chaired by Professor Malcolm Joyce of Lancaster University, provides a forum for nuclear scientists to discuss the cutting edge science and engineering aspects of nuclear energy together with increasingly more important safety, policy, resource and educational requirements of the industry.
The main areas of interest for this conference are advanced and evolutionary reactor designs, the safety of such plants, policy, engineering and resources, and educational challenges such as the shortfall of experience and skills in the sector.
Invited Speakers at the conference include:
"This land mark conference on Nuclear Energy comes at a key time for the UK and other nations as they take first steps to filling the energy gap that will be left by future nuclear plant closure," says Professor Peter Storey from the Dalton Nuclear Institute, "I expect discussions from eminent speakers from both sides of the Atlantic will be influential in outlining key stages in a Nuclear Energy Roadmap."
Conference Chair Professor Malcolm Joyce adds, "Nuclear energy is firmly back on the global agenda with burgeoning research needs, development and education. It's with great pleasure that I encourage you to attend this premier research-based conference in the nuclear field which will summarise these requirements."
The Progress in Nuclear Energy and Education Conference is endorsed by the Nuclear Industry Association. The conference is held in collaboration with the journal Progress in Nuclear Energy.
