Sixth General Meeting

WHEN Nov. 13-15, 2023
WHERE Tokyo, Japan Shimadzu Tokyo Innovation Plaza


The University of Tokyo, Japan, will host the sixth General Meeting of the International Committee on Irradiated Concrete on 13th-16th, November 2023.

The ICIC Executive Committee meeting will be held at the Department of Architecture (Via Faculty of Engineering Bldg 1, Utokyo, Hongo 7-3-1, Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo) on 12th November 2023, while the General Meeting will take place on 13th-15th November 2023 at the Shimadzu Tokyo Innovation Plaza (Via 25-40, Tonomachi-3, Kawasaki-ku, Kawasaki, Kanagawa, Zip 210-0821). The technical visit is under preparation and planned for the 16th November 2023.

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), the Fourth General Meeting in Knoxville (November 2018), the fifth general meeting in Padova (June 2022) 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.


Participants must notify intent to participate (with draft title and suggested TA session) by 31st August 2023, by emailing the corresponding Technical Area Coordinator and copying the Executive Committee Members.
Participants must register for the meeting by 30th September 2023, on the registration website managed by The University of Tokyo (See registration section). When applicable, presenters must confirm their presentation titles by email sent to the appropriate TACs (Please copy the Chair and the local organizer).
Presenters must provide a copy of their presentations to the Session Chair by 30th September 2023.

Presenters must provide the final version of the presentation to the Session Chair (with sensitive information removed) by 31st October 2023.
