2016 International Topical Meeting on High Temperature Reactor Technology (HTR2016)

“Accelerating R&D on HTGR and Heat Application Technologies”

HTR2016 aims to accelerate research and development on HTGR and heat application technologies. The conference and technical sessions are intended to enable the practical use of HTGR systems, will discuss and provide information exchange on the latest results on associated technologies and future perspectives and plans.

The conference draws experts from research and industry decision makers of interest including utilities, user industries, nuclear venders and governments.

HTR2016 is:

  • The sole international conference focusing on high-temperature gas-cooled reactors including heat application technology.
  • A place to exchange ideas and knowledge through discussions on the latest information and on future perspectives and plans with authors, presenters and colleagues.
  • A forum for sharing peer-reviewed, full-length technical papers covering recent advances in HTR.
  • An international embedded topical meeting of the ANS Winter Meeting
