14th International Topical Meeting on Nuclear Reactor Thermalhydraulics (NURETH-14)

September 25, 2011 @ 12:00 am - September 30, 2011 @ 12:00 am

Conference Theme:

“Helping the Environment with Advances in Thermalhydraulics”


Canada is the hosting country for the 14th International Topical Meeting on Nuclear Reactor Thermalhydraulics (NURETH-14). Continuing the tradition of the highly successful series of thirteen conferences, NURETH-14 will gather an international group of leading academic and industry researchers and practitioners engaged in engineering and scientific work focused on nuclear reactor thermalhydraulics. This is the only major conference series devoted solely to the advancement of knowledge in the nuclear reactor thermalhydraulics field.  NURETH-14 is a unique opportunity for researchers and practitioners in the field to present results of their work and discuss challenges and new ideas.


The NURETH-14 conference will be held at Hilton Toronto Hotel:

   Hilton Toronto 
   145 Richmond Street West
   Toronto, ON M5H 2L2
   Phone: 416 860-6804
