MoDeRn International conference and workshop, Luxembourg, 19-21 March 2013

The MoDeRn Project is pleased to announce the international conference and workshop Monitoring in Geological Disposal of Radioactive Waste: "Objectives, strategies, technologies and public involvement". The objective of the conference is twofold:

  • to present and discuss the results of the MoDeRn Project;
  • to invite further contributions and provide a forum for discussion on how monitoring informs the disposal process, responds to regulatory requirements, and contributes to enhancing confidence in and acceptance of geological disposal of radioactive waste.

An associated workshop will provide an opportunity for further, in-depth discussions on the conference topics and to investigate whether a shared understanding of repository monitoring can be developed. The conference is organised by the MoDeRn EURATOM Project and the European Commission, with special support from the OECD Nuclear Energy Agency.

Detailed information concerning programme, registration, instructions for abstract/paper submission, transport and accommodation will be available through the conference website: www.modern-fp7.eu/Monitoring-GDRW-2013/
