IGD-TP Symposium and Webinar – Registration now open!


Registration now open!

We are delighted to announce that registration is now open for the IGD-TP’s international symposium on the role of optimisation in geological disposal programmes for radioactive waste.  Hosted by Nagra in January 2022, the event is open to anyone interested in geological disposal of radioactive waste.

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 followed by a live webinar, 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 in the second announcement and on the dedicated IGD-TP symposium webpage.  Or you can go straight to the registration page here.  We look forward to seeing you there!
