The International workshop on disruptive technologies for nuclear safety applications is one of the most significant digital innovation events of the year. This two-day workshop will be held in person on 16-17 May 2023 in Jeju, Korea, and will focus on digital technologies (3D printing, the Internet of Things, advanced robotics, augmented reality), new materials and processes (data-driven production, artificial intelligence, learning algorithms) making their way into nuclear energy sector. The workshop will bring together distinguished speakers from academia, research organisations, industry, and regulatory bodies to engage in forward-thinking discussions on the potential opportunities and challenges posed by the adoption of the most disruptive digital innovations in the nuclear sector. It will provide an excellent opportunity to identify prospects for international co-operation in this area.
Co-organised by the OECD Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA), Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute (KAERI) and Korean Nuclear Society (KNS), this event will be co-located with the bi-annual conference of the Korean Nuclear Society, which will be held on 17-18 May 2023, and will offer additional opportunities to network and learn about the latest developments in the field.
Registration is free of charge. Interested participants are also invited to attend the Korean Nuclear Society workshop and the Korean Nuclear Society meeting which will take place during the same week.
