The University of Padova, Italy, will host the Fifth General Meeting of the International Committee on Irradiated Concrete on June 6-10, 2022.
The ICIC Executive Committee meeting will be held at the Department of Civil, Environmental and Architectural Engineering (Via F. Marzolo, 9 – 35131 Padova) on June 6th, 2022, while the General Meeting will take place on June 7th , 8th and 9th 2022 at the Aula Magna of Engineering School (Via Leonardo Loredan, 20 – 35131 Padova). On June 10th the National Institute of Nuclear Physics (INFN) – National Laboratories of Legnaro (LNL), Padova, will host the participants of the ICIC Meeting for a technical visit.
The ICIC was formed to provide a forum for broad technical interactions in research on the effects of irradiation on concrete used in nuclear applications, such as nuclear facilities, storage, and disposal sites, and which will contribute to advancing the current state of knowledge. Like the framework meetings held in Barcelona (March 2014), Helsinki (October 2014), and the First General Meeting in Knoxville (November
2015), the Second General Meeting in Nagoya, Japan (November 2016), the Third General Meeting in Prague, Czech Republic (November 2017), and the Fourth General Meeting in Knoxville (November 2018), participants will have an opportunity to present updates on their work related to irradiated concrete. These updates may vary from detailed discussions of new results or brief updates or summaries of their activities. And since this meeting is expected to attract additional participants, the new participants will be encouraged to present a broader discussion of their previous, current, or proposed activities on irradiated concrete.
The Closed Technical Meeting (members and invited guests) will be focused around the four Technical Areas revised by vote of the members at SGM. The Technical Areas (TAs) and the Technical Area Coordinators (TACs) (Session Chairs) are as follows:
