NKS-B RadWorkshop 2018

[ October 8-12, 2018 - Roskilde, Denmark ]

Workshop on Radioanalytical Chemistry for Nuclear Decommissioning and Waste Management

This is the third RadWorkshop supported by NKS. The two previous RadWorkshops with the scope of general aspects in radioanalytical chemistry took places at Risø, Denmark in 2010 and 2013, respectively. Different from the previous RadWorkshops, the upcoming RadWorkshop 2018 will more focus on radioanalytical chemistry for nuclear decommissioning and waste management.

This workshop will aim to create a network for all the partners in connection with nuclear decommissioning and waste management to review the import role of radioanalytical chemistry played in this domain.

Workshop topics

1. International and national legislation on decommissioning, waste management and clearance of materials, buildings and land

2. Strategies, experience and challenges in decommissioning of nuclear facilities

3. Radiological characterization and radiochemical analysis

         3.1 Sampling technique and strategies
         3.2 Radiological characterization methods
         3.3 Principles of radiochemical analysis
         3.4 Radiochemical methods for hard-to-measure radionuclides
         3.5 Measurement techniques (alpha, beta, gamma, LSC, mass spectrometry)
         3.6 Development of new techniques/materials


Registration - Deadline is 31 August 2018
