International Conference of the Croatian Nuclear Society

Dear Colleague,

We are pleased to announce the 12th International Conference of the Croatian Nuclear Society (HND) with the subtitle “Nuclear Option for CO2 Free Energy Generation” which will be held on June 3-6, 2018 in Zadar, Croatia.

The purpose of the conference series is to present and discuss the most relevant topics concerning the role and position of the nuclear option in the current energy balance, with special attention paid to the countries with small and medium electricity grids. In the societal context which is considerably marked by dynamic economic growth and concerns which include energy resources, potential climate changes and increasing greenhouse gas emission, the issue of ensuring reliable and sustainable energy is becoming ever more challenging.

In view of good response and success of the previous conferences in the series, the 12th International Conference in Zadar will serve the same general purpose, concentrating on the topics which attracted the most interest in previous conferences. The Conference will consider the nuclear option from the point of view of the national energy strategies, resources, costs, technological, organisational and educational requirements, as well as environmental advantages. It will also focus on the matters relating 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 the countries with an interest in the nuclear option.

We cordially invite you to submit a paper to our Conference. The important dates are:

  1. 31 December 2017: Abstract submission
  2. 31 January 2018: Abstract acceptance
  3. 31 March 2018: Full paper submission

For further information about the Conference (registration, abstract and paper submission, conference fees, etc.) please refer to the First Announcement and Call for Papers and visit the web site

We are looking forward to meeting you at the 12th HND’s Conference in Zadar!
