Objective:

The objective of this conference is to foster the exchange of information on the latest thinking and advances in the implementation of the concept of DID in nuclear installations, and the associated challenges. The focus will be on operating nuclear installations, including nuclear power plants, research reactors and fuel cycle facilities, and on how lessons learned from operating experience and recent events (e.g. the Fukushima Daiichi accident) are used to enhance safety. The implementation of DID covers a number of elements that are directly related to the different states and phases of a nuclear facility.

Topic Overview:

1) Advances and challenges in the implementation of DID in siting, design, and construction

2) Advances and challenges in the implementation of DID in commissioning and operation

3) Advances and challenges in the implementation of DID in accident management and emergency preparedness and response

4) Cross-cutting issues in the implementation of DID
