The purpose of this 3-day workshop is to gather world leading experts on Accelerator Driven Systems (ADS) and Thorium cycle technologies to:

  • Share experiences
  • Review state-of-the-art technologies with a view of offering potential deployment perspectives
  • Use areas of common interest to expedite technology readiness for full-scale ADS and Thorium fuel cycle deployment
  • Develop collaborations in areas of mutual interest

The workshop will include working sessions on:

  • ADS programs in the world
  • ADS enabling technologies
  • Progress on accelerator reliability technologies
  • Thorium based nuclear systems (subcritical and critical)
  • Scenario's combining Uranium- and Thorium-based fuel cycles
  • Front- and Back-end issues and challenges for Thorium fuel cycles
  • Economic aspects of Thorium based fuel and fuel cycles

This Symposium is organised in cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). Local organisation and support is provided by SCK•CEN, Mol, Belgium.
