The Slovak Nuclear Society would like to invite you to attend the 4th International Conference – Eastern and Central European Decommissioning.
The conference will be held in Trnava, Slovakia from June 25th to 26th, 2019.
The conference covers wide range of aspects that accompany the process of nuclear decommissioning and offers a platform for experience exchange between its international attendees and speakers.
The safe and effective decommissioning of nuclear facilities requires coordination of professions from several fields including nuclear energy, chemistry, engineering, construction, ecology.
The main objective of the conference is to encourage the exchange of experience and best practises in all areas of decommissioning in Central and Eastern European countries. The conference is focused on different aspects of decommissioning of nuclear facilities (technical, managerial as well as social), mainly in the following areas:
