IGD-TP Symposium and Webinar – Poster abstract deadline is approaching!


Don’t miss out – ensure you have submitted your poster abstract and registered to attend!

Following our announcement in April of the new event dates, registrations for the IGD-TP’s international symposium on the role of optimisation in geological disposal programmes for radioactive waste have been enthusiastically received!  Hosted by Nagra in September 2022, the event is open to anyone interested in geological disposal of radioactive waste.

The deadline to submit your poster abstracts is approaching quickly – 1 July.  Registration for the Symposium is open until 1 August, but there are only a few places left on each of the site tours, so make sure you register soon to book your place!

To enable access and involvement of all interested parties, the event will be held in two parts, with a 3-day physical event in Switzerland (20-22 September) followed by a live webinar (29 September), including panel discussion and a question and answer session.  The symposium will include sessions on:

  • the role of optimisation in selected national geological disposal programmes
  • technology and material optimisation
  • lessons learned from optimisation in large infrastructure projects
  • integrating optimisation for safety
  • global optimisation approaches – concepts and numerical applications

Throughout the symposium the IGD-TP will host a series of themed poster sessions that aim to showcase the cutting-edge radioactive waste management RD&D of our community. The posters will also be displayed on our website. We strongly encourage you to submit poster applications that align to the IGD-TP Strategic Research Agenda. Poster abstract submission is now open.

The second part of the event will consist of a live webinar that will include a panel discussion and question and answer session.

Interested parties can attend the symposium, or the webinar, or both events.

You can find out more information on the dedicated IGD-TP symposium webpage.  Or you can go straight to the registration page here.  We look forward to seeing you there!
