Future Workshops

 

seventh international workshop on plasma for cancer treatment (IWPCT 2020)

The Seventh International Workshop on Plasma for Cancer Treatment (IWPCT 2020) will be held at North Carolina State University (NCSU) in Raleigh, NC, USA, from March 23-25, 2020. The workshop promotes not only innovation in the field of plasma medicine but also effective cooperation between research and industry in this innovative discipline. The outcome of this collaborative meeting will work to benefit cancer patients everywhere.

 

Past Workshops

 

CASL Summer Institute 2018

The Consortium for Advanced Simulation of Light Water Reactors (CASL) Institute will introduce participants to CASL and the Virtual Environment for Reactor Applications (VERA) framework and component codes.

 

CASL Summer Institute 2019

The Consortium for Advanced Simulation of Light Water Reactors (CASL) will be holding its third summer Institute from August 6-17 at NCSU. The Institute will introduce participants to CASL and the Virtual Environment for Reactor Applications (VERA) framework and component codes. Through the CASL Institute, participants will receive instruction on radiation transport, thermal hydraulics, fuel performance, multi-physics coupling and sensitivity and uncertainty analysis. Instruction includes both lecture and practical work sessions.

 

CTF-4 USER GROUP mEETING

COBRA-TF is a thermal-hydraulic simulation code designed for Light Water Reactor (LWR) vessel and core analysis. It uses a two-fluid three-field modeling approach. CTF is the shortened name given to the version of COBRA-TF being developed and improved by the Reactor Dynamics and Fuel Modeling Group (RDFMG) at the North Carolina State University (NCSU).

 

Fifth COBRA-TF (CTF) User’s Group Meeting (CTF-5)

The fifth COBRA-TF (CTF) User’s Group (UG) Meeting (CTF-5) will be held on May 14-15, 2018 in in Lucca, Italy, and is a follow-up of the previous CTF UG meetings.

 

International Multi-Physics Validation

The Workshop is under the auspices of the Expert Group on Multi-Physics Experimental data, Benchmarks, and Validation (EGMPEBV) at NEA/OECD. The focus of the workshop is the validation of novel high-fidelity multi-physics modeling and simulation tools within the work scope of Task Force 2 (TF2) of EGMPEBV.

 

MAVRIC/KENO, version SCALE 6.2.2 Workshop

This course provides instruction on the use of the KENO-VI Monte Carlo code for criticality safety calculations and the MAVRIC (Monaco with Automated Variance Reduction using Importance Calculations) shielding sequence with 3-D automated variance reduction for deep-penetration problems.

 

MCNP WORKSHOP

This is an introductory workshop to MCNP.

 

Multi-Physics Model Validation Workshop

The Nuclear Energy Knowledge and Validation Center (NEKVaC), INL in cooperation with the OECD/NEA Expert Group of Multi-physics Experiments, Benchmarks, and Validation (EGMPEBV), and with the support of Nuclear University Consortium (NUC), INL is sponsoring a Workshop on Multi-Physics Model Validation.

The workshop is hosted by the Nuclear Engineering Department (NED) at North Carolina State University (NCSU), and is supported by NEA/OECD international activities.

 

NUC WORKSHOP

This two-day workshop, will be held in the week of September 17-18, intends to bring together researchers and stakeholders from nuclear industry, universities, national laboratories, and government to discuss challenges, needs, and emerging trends in innovations that enable acceleration of development, licensing, and commercialization of advanced reactor technologies.

 

OECD/NEA Workshops at ORNL

The workshops and meetings are organized by the Working Party on scientific issues of Reactor Systems (WPRS) and its expert groups at Nuclear Science Committee (NSC), NEA/OECD, and cover the development, verification, validation, and uncertainty quantification of novel single- and multi-physics high-fidelity modeling and simulation tools for LWRs and advanced reactors. The workshops are listed below and their announcements are attached.

 

OECD/NEA workshops at GRS

The following OECD/NEA workshops will be held in the week of June 24 – 28, 2019 in Garching by Munich, Germany and will be hosted by GRS.
