September 24 – 27, 2017
7th Clay Conference, Davos, Switzerland
Clays in Natural and Engineered Barriers for Radioactive Waste Confinement
Following the success of six earlier meetings on ‘Clays in Natural and Engineered BarriersÂ for Radioactive Waste Confinement’, held in Reims (December 2002), Tours (March 2005),Â Lille (September 2007), Nantes (March 2010), Montpellier (October 2012) and BrusselsÂ (March 2015), the Scientific Committee of the conference recommended organising aÂ seventh meeting on the same general topic. The recommendation was made in response toÂ the ongoing interest of the international scientific community and in accordance with theÂ overall opinion of the conference participants.
The meeting provides an ideal environment to assess the latest state of research, but also toÂ foster informal contacts and discussion among specialists from various disciplines relating toÂ clays and clay minerals, as well as scientists from organisations engaged in radioactiveÂ waste disposal or other uses of the subsurface in which clay barriers play an important role.Â
A broad range of topics related to natural argillaceous geological barriers and clay-basedÂ engineered barrier systems will be addressed.
The meeting will take place in Davos, Switzerland, at the Congress Centre located in theÂ heart of the city and within walking distance from the railway stations Davos Dorf and DavosÂ Platz. The official language of the meeting is English.
