Call for Papers
3rd International Technical Meeting on Small Reactors
“Applications of Research Reactors and Small Modular Reactors”
2014 November 5-7
Ottawa Marriott Hotel, Ottawa, Ontario CANADA
Objective
Abstract Submission
Atomic Energy of Canada Limited (AECL) and Canadian
rd
Nuclear Society (CNS) are hosting the 3 International
Technical Meeting on Small Reactors. There is growing
international interest and activity in the development of
small nuclear reactor technology including building
prototypes and research reactors. This meeting will
provide participants with an opportunity to share ideas and
exchange information on new developments.
Abstracts (<250 words) and full papers must be submitted
via the submission link on the meeting website. Papers
should include sufficient information for a clear
presentation of the topic; usually this can be achieved in 812 pages, including figures and tables. All papers will be
published in a CD to be distributed at the meeting. The
required format of submission is electronic (MSWord or
PDF). Information on paper submission and templates is
available from the website:

nd
Following the success of the 2 Technical Meeting in
November 2012, which captured the achievements,
rd
capabilities, and future prospects of small reactors, this 3
Technical Meeting is dedicated to the applications of
research reactors and small modular reactors.
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. A special track is
planned to focus on small modular reactors (SMR) for
generating electricity and process heat, particularly in
small grids and remote locations.
A technical tour of the Chalk River Laboratories will be
hosted by AECL for all interested attendees on
November 7. It will include the ZED-2 and NRU reactors.
