The purpose of the 20th Environmental Degradation meeting is to foster an exchange between plant operators, industry and academic researchers concerning materials degradation issues and solutions in water-cooled nuclear power plants of today and of the future. The meetings cover issues facing nickel base alloys, stainless steels, pressure vessel and piping steels, zirconium alloys, and other alloys in water environments of relevance. Components covered include pressure boundary components, reactor vessels and internals, steam generators, fuel cladding, irradiated components, fuel storage containers, and balance of plant components and systems. Join an international group of industrial and academic leaders for this opportunity to exchange experience, research and ideas to work towards solutions to these issues.
Abstracts should be 250 words or less. Presenters must submit a full paper in order to receive a speaking slot and to be included in the proceedings. Submitted papers should target no more than 15 pages in length. Longer papers will be evaluated on an individual basis. Abstracts for posters will also be accepted without a requirement for a paper; however, authors who submit poster abstracts are strongly encouraged to provide full papers for publication. During technical reviews, some abstracts may be assigned as posters in order to accommodate as many authors as possible with limited availability for presentation slots. In the event that a presentation slot becomes available, the poster will be upgraded to a presentation and included in the final proceedings.
