Presentation of conference

The ATALANTE Conferences provide an international forum for presentations and discussions on advances for future fuel cycles and waste management.

Energy perspectives for the current century are dominated by the anticipated significant increase of energy needs due to the population growth and the likely economic development of emerging countries. Particularly, electricity consumption is anticipated to increase by a factor higher than two before 2050. Furthermore, the global climate change has now been proven to be partially related to the release of greenhouse gases from anthropogenic activities, including energy production. Considering that about 80% of our current primary energy comes from fossil energies, we have to face in the near-future a challenging issue: meeting the increasing energy needs while curbing the GHG emissions.

From this perspective, nuclear energy is considered as a potential contributor to the future energy portfolio to meet the energetic needs while preserving the climate but it also has to demonstrate that it can contribute safely and on a sustainable way. Its acceptance is closely associated to our capability to reduce the lifetime of the nuclear waste, to manage them safely and to propose options for a better use of the natural resources.

This cannot be achieved only by optimizing industrial processes through engineering studies. It is of a primary importance to increase our fundamental knowledge in actinide sciences in order to build the future of nuclear energy on reliable and scientifically-founded results, and therefore meet the needs of the future fuel cycles in terms of fabrication and performance of fuels, reprocessing and waste management. Therefore, for its fifth edition and in the continuation of the series, the organisers propose to focus the ATALANTE Conference on the nuclear chemistry issues for all the fuel cycles and waste management options by giving the floor the international nuclear chemistry community through more than 150 oral contributions. In addition, a poster session will be the opportunity to enlarge this number of contributions.

Oral and poster presentations will be invited on subjects and issues that cover almost all the fields of the nuclear chemistry related to the nuclear fuel cycles.

 Conference Topics

• Actinide and fission product chemistry
• Uranium ore processing and purification
• Actinide separation **
• Actinide material
• Waste conditioning and long-term evolution
• Geological repository nuclear chemistry
• Environmental nuclear chemistry
• Safeguards and analytical developments

** The separation chemistry session will be organised as the second SACSESS International Workshop

 Location

Located between the Rhône valley and the Pyrenees, at only 10 minutes from the Mediterranean coast, Montpellier is a millennium city in the heart of the southern wine-producing region. It has become a major commercial, cultural and tourist hub, and offers an exceptional conference place.

Location and Venue

area full of great hotels and restaurants.

Location

The ATALANTE 2012 International Conference will be organised in the Corum de Montpellier. Located between the Rhône valley and the Pyrenees, at only 10 minutes from the Mediterranean coast, Montpellier is a millennium city in the heart of the southern wine-producing region. It has become a major commercial, cultural and tourist hub, and features an exceptional conference centre, the Corum.

Montpellier’s international airport has connections to 60 destinations across France, Europe and worldwide. With 11 daily services from Paris aboard France’s famous TGV, the centre of Montpellier is only a 3.15 hour train ride away. By road it is a short drive from key cities such as Marseille, (1h30), Barcelona (2.30hrs) and Geneva (4hrs).
