NUWCEM 2018 ǀ 24 - 26 OCT. ǀ AVIGNON, FRANCE 


Scope and objectives

Cementation is a widely applied technique for the conditioning of low - and intermediate - level radioactive wastes.  However, specific issues have still to be addressed, such as the limitation of adverse cement-waste interactions which may affect the quality of the resulting solidified waste form, or the understanding and prediction of long-term properties of the waste packages and cement barriers. There is also a need for safe processes minimizing the production of secondary wastes. The objective is to promote the exchange of advanced information on the ongoing research and development activities dealing with cementation of nuclear wastes, from elaboration of waste packages to their final disposal.

About SFEN

The symposium

  •  A 3 day conference talks and posters, will be held in Avignon, France, from 24 to 26 October 2018, at the Palais des Papes, an historical place in the center of the town.

  • The first day of the symposium (October 24th, 2018) will be organized concomitantly with the DEM 2018 Conference ( to bring together communities from the different branches of decontamination & dismantling and waste conditioning. Attendees to Nuwcem 2018 will thus have the opportunity to visit the DEM 2018 exhibition and poster session.

Organized by

The French Commission for Atomic and Alternative Energies, & the French Nuclear Energy Society

The French Nuclear Energy Society, SFEN, (Société Française d’Energie Nucléaire) is the French knowledge hub for nuclear energy. Created in 1973, the SFEN provides a space where all those who are interested in nuclear energy and its applications can obtain and exchange information.

The SFEN brings together 3 600 professionals, engineers, technicians, chemists, doctors, professors and students from industrial sites and from the French nuclear research organisations.

The SFEN’s four missions are: 

• To communicate, share and publish information

• To highlight the nuclear sector’s scientific excellence and technical rigour 

• To play an active role in discussions

• To federate the women and men who work in the nuclear sector
