I have never regarded nuclear radiation or nuclear power as anything other than a normal and inevitable part of the environment. Our prokaryotic forebears evolved on a planet-sized lump of fallout from a star-sized nuclear explosion, a supernova that synthesised the elements that go to make our planet and ourselves. <James Lovelock>

8th Int. conference

ss Scope of the conference

In view of good response and success of the previous Dubrovnik conferences, devoted to the needs and interests of countries with small or medium nuclear systems and electricity grids, the Dubrovnik 2010 conference will serve the same general purpose, concentrating on the topics which invited the most interest in previous conferences. It is the follow up conference again intended to save the needs and interests at this important and growing group of countries. The Conference will consider the nuclear option from the point of view of national energy strategy, resources, costs, technological, organisational and educational requirements, and environmental advantages. It will also focus on matters related to operational safety, fuel cycle, waste management, and decommissioning.
The important goal of the Conference is to promote regional co-operation and exchange of experience in use of nuclear power and fuel cycle facilities among small or medium-sized countries with an interest in the nuclear option.

ss Programme

It is foreseen that the conference papers will cover the following topics:
  • Energy Planning and Nuclear Option
  • Power Reactors and Technologies
  • Nuclear Energy and the Environment
  • Operation and Maintenance Experience
