Due to the latest developments, the persisting uncertainties linked to the pandemic in which many of the speakers and attendees found themselves, we have decided in consultation with all the ones involved in the NPC organization (core members, international committee and program committee) to postpone NPC and the Radiolysis Workshop in 2023 from September 25 to 29 in Antibes – Juan-les-Pins, France.
More details will be available soon.
[Updated August 31, 2021]
The NPC conference is the key point meeting for the nuclear chemistry and radiochemistry international community. Since the 2018 edition of the NPC conference in San Francisco, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Chemists from nuclear power plants all around the world did not have much opportunity to attend in person an international conference dedicated to nuclear chemistry. The 2023 edition in Antibes – Juan les Pins will allow them to meet face to face again.
Topics include: Safety, materials’ integrity, maintenance and duration of operation, radiation field management, advanced reactors, environment preservation, improvements of monitoring and surveillance.
The aim is to share and transfer knowledge via oral and poster presentations covering operating experience, scientific studies and future trends.
The conference will also feature the biennal Workshop on radiolysis, electrochemistry and material performance.
NPC 2021, 22nd edtion of the International Conference on Water Chemistry of Nuclear Reactor Systems (PWR, BWR, PHWR, VVER, other advanced reactors as SMR…) will focus on the following topics :
- Secondary water chemistry
Operating experience ● Scientific studies ● Future trends ● Conditioning & treatment ● Corrosion & deposition ● Surveillance & control
- Primary water chemistry & radiochemistry
Operating experience ● Scientific studies ● Future trends ● Corrosion ● Conditioning & treatment ● Radiation fields ● Fuel ● Surveillance & control ● Chemistry & radiochemistry in Abnormal Condition
- Auxiliary systems water chemistry & waste treatment
Primary, secondary, open & closed cooling systems ● Conditioning & treatment ● Corrosion & deposition ● Surveillance & control ● Microbiology
- Maintenance & long term operation
- Monitoring updates & new developments
- Numerical & simulation tools
- Advanced reactors
The French Nuclear Society is the French knowledge hub for nuclear energy. Created in 1973, the Sfen provides a space where all those who are interested in nuclear energy and its applications can obtain and exchange information.
