Modelling in Nuclear Science and Engineering Seminar

December 31

£50 – £260

 This event has been postponed with a view to rescheduling it as soon as conditions permit. 

The Nuclear Institute is delighted to announce this year’s Modelling in Nuclear Science and Engineering seminar will be held at Bangor University, North Wales.

The University’s Nuclear Futures Institute is developing a world-leading capability in nuclear science and engineering, fostering industrial links and opportunities and works closely with the BWR Hub. The Nuclear Futures Institute is also a key partner in the EPSRC sponsored Centre for Doctoral Training in Nuclear Energy Futures.

This event is designed to further explore recent innovative developments in engineering simulation, and inspire the modelling communities in order to help reduce uncertainties associated with the analysis that in many cases support the plant design, its supporting safety case and operation.

Our 2020 event will see a mixture of invited prominent speakers from the nuclear community, where the latest advances and learning from modelling in nuclear science and engineering will be discussed; and we are seeking abstracts from designers, practitioners or researchers who wish to submit a presentation at this popular seminar.

Abstract submissions

Deadline for 200-400 word abstracts is 27th March 2020
Full written papers will not be required

Please email your abstracts to events@nuclearinst.com with ‘Modelling Seminar 2020’ in the subject line, providing your intention to present or submit a poster

Presentations from the nuclear simulation community can be submitted and will be considered for acceptance, however, contributions from one or more of the subjects below are particularly welcomed:

  • Advances in Materials Modelling
  • Materials modelling for ageing plants
  • Next Generation Reactor Modelling
  • Materials modelling for the next generation of nuclear reactors
  • Modelling Developments in Accident Analysis
  • Application of Modelling in Risk Analysis
  • Load Pattern Optimisation, Multi-objective Optimisation of Fuel Assemblies Assimilation & Uncertainty
  • End of Plant Life studies, and use of multi-physics
  • Fuel Performance Modelling
  • Digital Reactor/Digital twins
  • Application of ROM – a growing area of interest
  • Applications of Machine Learning to Plant Performance


Early bird booking deadline is Friday 3 April - £50-£180
Standard rate booking deadline is Monday 25th May - £50-£260
