International Conference on Nuclear Data for Science and Technology

Since the first symposium in Harwell, UK in 1978, the series of International Conference on Nuclear Data for Science and Technology (ND Conference) have been the primary conference concerning nuclear data and its applications, both scientific and technical. Nuclear data is a comprehensive field connecting fundamental physics and nuclear applications, which has been an essential part in the development of peaceful use of nuclear energy. In light of the increasing role of nuclear data in diverse fields of research and application, ND has grown to address many active scientific and technical fields, including:

  • fundamental nuclear physics;
  • astrophysics;
  • nuclear data measurements;
  • nuclear power and energy;
  • nuclear medicine;
  • nuclear non-proliferation;
  • nuclear safety;
  • nuclear education;
  • public acceptance, and more.

The ND conferences were first organised as a US national meeting in Washington, D.C., before becoming an international event sponsored by NEA. The conferences are now co-sponsored by the NEA Nuclear Science Committee and the International Atomic Energy Agency. The conferences are held every three years and the list of locations is provided below:
