The 2021 Annual Technical Meeting of CCP-NTH

14 December 2021 @ 9:00 am 1:00 pm GMT

We are pleased to announce that this year’s CCP/SIG NTH Annual Technical Meeting (Online) will be held on 14 December 2021 (9:00-13:00). We also note that there will be a BEIS Digital Reactor – Thermal Hydraulics Project Dissemination Event in the afternoon between 14:00 – 15:30, which will be announced separately.

The Technical Meeting will comprise an update on the CCP work packages 1  and 2, followed by a keynote talk, and short and extended presentations from the community. We hope to hear updates from all member organisations of the CCP Working Group. We expect most talks to be short presentations/updates, but hope to accommodate a small number of more extended reports on R&D/research activities.  

Please register your intention to attend by replying to Dr Wei Wang – wei.wang@stfc.ac.uk  by 26 November with the following information:

·         Name, organisation, email

·         Intend to attend: Yes, No, Maybe

·         Intend to make a short presentation (5 minutes): yes, no.

·         Intend to make an extended presentation (and title if known) (15 minutes): yes, no.

Registration is needed so you can be set up for the Zoom meeting. Please forward this email to anyone who might be interested in attending part or all of the meetings.

Please send any query to Dr Wei Wang (wei.wang@stfc.ac.uk). You can also send your questions regarding the BEIS Project to Richard Underhill (r.underhill@fnc.co.uk).
