The Materials Modelling and Simulation for Nuclear Fuels (MMSNF) Workshop is a forum for the discussion of state-of-the-art modelling and simulation techniques for nuclear fuels and cladding materials.
Examples of topics include the development of innovative techniques to model fuel behaviour, the coupling of various physical phenomena to enhance material predictions, and the utilisation of such techniques to better interpret experimental measurements. Presentations are grouped by scales following a multiscale paradigm and range in space-time scale including:
The goal of this workshop is to contribute to improving the communication and to stimulate synergies among different groups.
The event will feature a limited number of broad presentations on recent insightful and exciting topics with ample time for discussions.
Large poster session will showcase individual work in a manner that permits focused interaction and discussion with international experts and colleagues.
This year's workshop will include a discussion on:
The submission period is over, acceptance for oral or poster presentation was announced on 25 September 2023. The registration is open until 31 October 2023 (see below).
An NEA Report will be made available summarising the discussions, abstracts and poster presentations (pending completion of the "Copyright grant of rights" document).
The MMSNF 2023 workshop is the latest in a series that began in 2003, and will be jointly hosted by the Canadian Nuclear Laboratories, McMaster University, with the co-sponsorship of the OECD Nuclear Energy Agency.
Location: McMaster University, Hamilton, ON
Date: 28-30 November, 2023
Registration will open on the NEA website on 25 September 2023. Through self-organisation, collaboration, and sponsorship, MMSNF keeps a moderate registration fee (180 EUR for in-person participation and 90 EUR for remote participation) to encourage the widest possible participation.
