About this Symposium
Meeting Materials in Nuclear Energy Systems (MiNES) 2021
Symposium Materials in Nuclear Energy Systems (MiNES) 2021
Organizer(s) Todd R. Allen, University of Michigan
Clarissa A. Yablinsky, Los Alamos National Laboratory
Anne A. Campbell, Oak Ridge National Laboratory
Scope MiNES first met in 2019 to serve the fission reactor materials community that grew out of biannual symposia held at the TMS annual meeting (Microstructure Processes in Irradiated Materials – MPIM) and the American Nuclear Society (ANS) annual meeting (Nuclear Fuel and Structural Materials – NFSM). Discussions previously explored at MPIM and NFSM are now part of the MiNES forum and include the following topics:

- Fundamental Irradiation Damage
- Evolution of Material Propertie
- Integrated Phenomena in Reactor Materials
- Advanced/Novel Materials
- Fuels and Actinide Materials
- Nuclear Fuel Cycles

The second installment of MiNES will be held September 19-23, 2021 in Pittsburgh, PA, USA. ANS and TMS alternate sponsorship of the conference and assist an organizing committee headed by three conference chairs in planning the content and venue for each meeting. While held in the U.S., the organizers of MiNES strongly encourage international participation.
