The Materials Modeling and Simulation for Nuclear Fuels (MMSNF) 2013 workshop will be held October 14-16 2013 at the University of Chicago Gleacher Center in downtown Chicago, Illinois. The workshop will be jointly hosted by Argonne and the University of Chicago.

The Materials Modeling and Simulation of Nuclear Fuels (MMSNF) workshop series aims at stimulating research and discussions on models and simulations of nuclear fuels and coupling the results into fuel performance codes, with the hope that this leads to improved fuel designs. Although centered on multi-scale model development and computer simulations, close connections to theory, experiment and technology are encouraged.

In addition to research focused on existing or improved types of LWR reactors, efforts also exist internationally to develop innovative nuclear fuels and materials for future generations of nuclear reactors. A key rationale behind this workshop is to contribute toward improving the communication and to stimulate synergies among these different efforts.
