Canadian Nuclear Laboratories (CNL) and Canadian Nuclear Society (CNS) are hosting the 4th International Technical Meeting on Small Reactors.
Small nuclear reactors can play an important role in addressing the energy, health, safety, security and climate change goals of the world. While the water-cooled small modular reactor technology is developing rapidly, a number of non‑water‑cooled advanced small reactor technologies, such as the molten salt reactor, the liquid metal reactor and the high temperature gas reactor, are being developed. These small reactors have advanced passive safety features, are resistant to nuclear proliferation, have no greenhouse gas emissions and promoted as being economically competitive. They are suitable for niche and off-grid applications as well as connection to electric grids in slow-growing economies to increase capacity as needed.
Next-generation research reactors are considered for multiple purposes, such as radionuclide production, silicon doping, neutron activation, neutron radiography, materials research, fuel irradiation and generating data for reactor physics code validation activities.
This technical meeting will cover topics of interest to designers, operators, researchers and analysts involved in the design, development and deployment of small reactors for research and power generation purposes.
In response to demand, the deadline for submission has been extended to August 15.
Authors should submit an extended abstract (two to four pages) via this link. Extended abstracts approved for presentation will be published in the Conference Proceedings (CD format).

A technical tour of the Chalk River Laboratories, hosted by CNL, will be offered to all interested attendees on November 4. The tour will include the state-of-art Hydrogen Isotopes Technology lab, the Biological Research Facility, ZED-2 and NRU research reactors and the Fuel Development Lab.
The tours themselves are at no charge. However, there will be a charge of $35 to partly cover the cost of transportation. Lunch will be at the CRL Cafeteria at your own cost, or you may bring your own lunch along if you prefer.
