20th International Nuclear Graphite Specialist Meeting
September 16 - September 19
The 20th International Nuclear Graphite Specialist Meeting will take place in the historical city of Bruges (Belgium) and will be hosted by SCK•CEN, the Belgian Nuclear Research Center. It is the continuation of a series of annual conferences that started at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, (Tennessee) in 2000. The most recent editions were held in Vienna (2016), in Baltimore (2017), and in Shanghai (2018).
The objective of INGSM is to provide a forum for information exchange on all aspects from nuclear graphite, ranging from the development of future advanced reactor technology (High Temperature Reactors, Molten-Salt Reactors) to the treatment and disposal of irradiated graphite waste.
The main themes of the INGSM-20 meeting are to explore the entire nuclear graphite life cycle and the technical issues which are presented in the design, operation and decommissioning of graphite moderated nuclear reactors.
