Modelling in Nuclear Science and Engineering 2024

The 7th Modelling in Nuclear Science and Engineering Seminar aims to promote the development and applications of computational methods in nuclear sciences and engineering. This is to share good practices with the nuclear industry in developing numerical methods and computer simulations. The Seminar includes invited speakers, special technology leaders and presentations from the nuclear industry, national institutions and academia.

This Seminar will again extend over a day and a half with keynote speakers and presentations from industry, operators and academia on a range of topics supporting the nuclear sector and the wider supply chain including co-generation and alternative fuels.

Previous keynote speakers have come from the International Atomic Energy Agency, Great British Nuclear, University of Cambridge and National Nuclear Laboratory amongst many others.

Abstract Submissions: Open now

Authors should consider the following themes in developing their abstract. The Organising Committee will also consider submissions for poster presentations. 

  • Developments supporting ANTs, AMRs, SMRs and propulsion.
  • Advances in materials modelling and fuel development.
  • AI, innovation and recent developments in reactor performance and safety modelling.
  • Reactor thermal hydraulics, fuel performance, neutronics, instabilities, criticality and shielding.
  • Uncertainty quantification, sensitivity analysis, data assimilation and digital twins.
  • Modelling techniques to optimise and support design and process developments.
  • Plant extension and end-of-life studies.
  • Fuel cycle facilities, decommissioning activities, waste management.
  • Multi-physics and multi-scale modelling.
  • Co-generation, energy systems, hydrogen generation.
  • Experimental techniques supporting modelling validation activities.

Submissions are open until Monday 16th September, but the Organising Committee will review and allocate presentations on an ongoing basis.
