The joint ICTP-IAEA Essential Knowledge Workshop on Deterministic Safety Assessment and Engineering Aspects Important to Safety will take place at the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) in Trieste, Italy, from 12 to 23 October 2015.
The purpose of this two week workshop is to provide regulatory body staff, future operators and technical support organizations (TSOs) in developing countries, working in the area of deterministic safety assessment and performing reactor safety reviews, with an overview of deterministic safety assessment methods and tools including those related to the design extension conditions as well as an overview of the engineering aspects important to safety. This workshop includes material from the IAEA’s Safety Assessment Education and Training (SAET) Programme aimed at familiarizing participants with the main concepts and methods of safety assessment in the IAEA safety standards, and will be of particular interest to participants from countries introducing nuclear power programmes.
Scientists and students from all countries that are members of the United Nations, UNESCO or IAEA may attend. The workshop will be conducted in English. Participants therefore must have adequate command of this language. Although the main purpose of the ICTP is to help researchers from developing countries, through a programme of training activities within a framework of international cooperation, a limited number of students and post-doctoral scientists from developed countries are also welcome to attend.
There is no registration fee.
