Participation of IGD-TP to other Workshop and Conference

Event Name


ICRER 2017

The 4th International Conference on Radioecology and Environmental Radioactivity (ICRER) will be held in Berlin, Germany, 3-8 September 2017.

The aim of the conference is to review and discuss recent achievements in radioecology and related disciplines, as well as to promote continued development in these subjects in order to improve the radiological protection of humans and the environment.

The International Conference on Radioecology and Environmental Radioactivity 2017 will cover the acquisition of basic scientific knowledge in research dedicated to any human and wildlife exposure situations for a wide range of radioactive sources and scenarios (planned, existing and emergency situations), as well as identifying new societal needs along with technical requirements for regulators and industry.

This will include environmental monitoring strategies, advances in metrology as well as development of validated models to better predict the consequences of all sources of radioactivity; industrial, (enhanced) natural, accidental and potential. Advances in methods dedicated to integrated and graded approach for human and wildlife radiological risk assessment will be another operational focus of the conference. Research combining "lab-field-modelling" approach and fit-for-purpose applications will be appreciated. Presentation of major outcomes from research programmes on the environmental consequences of the Fukushima and Chernobyl accidents will be welcome. Design of appropriate emergency preparedness routines will be another focus area, as well as supporting the development of laws and regulations that protect man and ecosystems from the effects of ionising radiation. Openness to other disciplines to integrate their skills and knowledge to improve radioecology, and capitalisation of best practices, tools and data in the various fields of research is encouraged.

The conference will be a key forum for researchers, industry, regulators and experts for whom radioactivity in the environment is an interest area. It will include a selection of oral presentations, as well as short oral presentations for selected posters and poster exhibition.

See the ICER 2017 Flyer for more information.

7th Clay Conference


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 Barriers for Radioactive Waste Confinement’, held in Reims (December 2002), Tours (March 2005), Lille (September 2007), Nantes (March 2010), Montpellier (October 2012) and Brussels (March 2015), the Scientific Committee of the conference recommended organising a seventh meeting on the same general topic. The recommendation was made in response to the ongoing interest of the international scientific community and in accordance with the overall opinion of the conference participants.
The meeting provides an ideal environment to assess the latest state of research, but also to foster informal contacts and discussion among specialists from various disciplines relating to clays and clay minerals, as well as scientists from organisations engaged in radioactive waste disposal or other uses of the subsurface in which clay barriers play an important role. 
A broad range of topics related to natural argillaceous geological barriers and clay-based engineered barrier systems will be addressed.
The meeting will take place in Davos, Switzerland, at the Congress Centre located in the heart of the city and within walking distance from the railway stations Davos Dorf and Davos Platz. The official language of the meeting is English.
Further information on the conference will follow at www.clayconferencedavos2017.com  or
can be obtained from the Organising Committee at Sonja.mccullough@nagra.ch.

From nuclear data to a reliable estimate of spent fuel decay heat

On October 25, 2017 the SCK•CEN Academy for Nuclear Science and Technology will organise, in collaboration with the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission in Geel, a training course entitled“From nuclear data to a reliable estimate of spent fuel decay heat”, which will be held at the SCK•CEN Lakehouse in Mol, Belgium.

Objective & topics

This training course is organized by the SCK•CEN Academy for Nuclear Science and Technology in collaboration with the EC-JRC Geel in order to bring together master students, PhD students or professionals involved in the characterization of spent nuclear fuel, decay heat calculations and/or measurements.

The following topics will be treated:

  • §Â  Experimental determination of fission fragment yields and characteristics
  • §Â  Prompt neutron and gamma-ray emission in nuclear fission
  • §Â  Physics of fission yield models
  • §Â  Q-value and decay heat
  • §Â  Activation/depletion of reactor fuel
  • §Â  Decay heat experiments
  • §Â  Experimental characterisation of spent nuclear fuel

Target public

Master students, PhD students or professionals involved in the characterization of spent nuclear fuel, decay heat calculations and measurements.


See attached file for the programme or visit the SCK•CEN Academy websitefor more information.

Registration & price

Online registration is mandatory for all participants via the SCK•CEN Academy website.

The registration fee is € 440 (VAT included), the deadline for registration to the course is October 9, 2017

This fee includes:

  • §Â  course material in printed format;
    • §Â  lunch and refreshment breaks;
    • §Â  dinner;
