RERTR-2011 International Meeting


The U.S. Department of Energy / National Nuclear Security Administration’s Office of Global Threat Reduction in cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency hosted the “RERTR 2011 International Meeting on Reduced Enrichment for Research and Test Reactors.” The meeting was organized by Argonne National Laboratory, Chilean Nuclear Energy Commission (CCHEN) and Idaho National Laboratory and was held in Santiago, Chile from October 23-27, 2011. This was the 33rd annual meeting in a series on the same general subject regarding conversion of reactors within the Global Threat Reduction Initiative.

RERTR-2011 was attended by 153 technical and policy experts from twenty-eight countries and the IAEA. The technical program consisted of 87 papers presented in fifteen oral sessions and one poster session during the four-day-long meeting. Policy papers were presented the first day, in particular from the IAEA and NNSA with emphasis on HEU minimization progress and US – Russian cooperation in ongoing research reactor conversion activities. Throughout the week as many as thirty-seven side meetings were held with participants to discuss progress in the respective conversion projects.

The abstracts and full papers are being collected and will be soon available on this web site. Subscribe to our RSS feed to stay informed on future updates.

The RERTR-2011 Organizing Committee would like to thank hosts, sponsors, and participants for making RERTR-2011 such a successful event. Thank you!
