The 13th International Topical Meeting on Nuclear Reactor Thermal-Hydraulics, Operation, and Safety (NUTHOS-13) will take place in Hsinchu, Taiwan on Sep. 5-10, 2022, hosted by Chung-Hwa Nuclear Society (CHNS), National Tsing Hua University (NTHU) and co-hosted by American Nuclear Society (ANS), Atomic Energy Society of Japan (AESJ), Canadian Nuclear Society (CNS), Chinese Nuclear Society (CNS), Korean Nuclear Society (KNS).
The NUTHOS conference is traditionally held every two years. The first was held in Taipei in 1984 followed by Tokyo (1986), Seoul (1988), Taipei (1994), Beijing (1997), Nara (2004), Seoul (2008), Shanghai (2010), Kaohsiung (2012), Okinawa (2014), Gyeongju (2016) and Qingdao (2018). Due to the pandemics, NUTHOS-13, 2020 in Canada is postponed and moved to Taiwan in 2022. NUTHOS, focusing on nuclear thermal hydraulics, operation and safety, has attracted great attentions from the international nuclear community and has become one of the major international conferences in these fields.
NUTHOS-13 will cover eight technical tracks including Fundamental Thermal-Hydraulics, Computational Thermal-Hydraulics and CFD Method, Experimental Thermal-Hydraulics, Safety and Severe Accidents, Thermal-Hydraulics and Safety of Advanced Reactors, Plant Operation and Maintenance, Plant Diagnostics and Monitoring, Small Modular Reactors and Micro Reactors. Moreover, a special session on Decommission and Spent Fuel Management and a panel session on Small Modular Reactors and Micro Reactors will also be arranged.
Attendees will be able to report on their studies and changes impacting the nuclear industry and share lessons learned from their safely operations of nuclear power plants.
Due to the travel restriction of current Taiwan government’s COVID-19 pandemic policy, we have to decide that the NUTHOS-13 conference will be held 100% on-line.
We sincerely invite you to contribute and participate in NUTHOS-13. Mark the dates and promote NUTHOS-13 to your community. We trust this will be a very successful event and exciting conference to reconfirm the critical role of power for carbon neutrality in 2050-2060.
