Nuclear Power Safety 2011

Advanced Technologies, Materials, & Engineering Approaches for Safe & Efficient Nuclear Power
December 8-9, 2011
Washington, DC

Nuclear Power Safety 2011 will address a broad scope of multidisciplinary issues related to technological advances in nuclear power safety around the world. The understanding of such issues and their interrelationship is essential to the development of future advances and safer nuclear power. This program will bring together an international interdisciplinary panel of experts from government, academia, and industry to address crucial issues in nuclear power safety including:
• Lessons learned from Fukushima, Chernobyl and Three Mile Island
• Identifying and overcoming vulnerabilities to terrorist attack
• Safety systems – a technology neutral assessment
• New technologies - impact of novel materials, technologies and advanced engineering on risk mitigation
• Technology failure vs. human factor vs. natural disaster
• Safety culture and human errors
• Nuclear power plant regulation: implications of a safety goals driven performance-based regulation
