Scope Advanced nuclear reactors will play a critical role in meeting the ever-increasing demand for carbon-free energy worldwide. Compared to light water reactors (LWRs), the proposed advanced nuclear energy systems present an exceptionally harsh environment for the structural materials due to a combination of elevated temperature, increased radiation damage, extended service time, and more corrosive coolants. Furthermore, the growing interest in demonstrating advanced reactor designs requires the qualification process of structural materials to be accelerated. All of these challenges must be tackled in order to realize the desired safety, efficiency, and economics of future nuclear reactors. Meanwhile, rapid progress in other emerging fields, such as additive manufacturing, high-throughput testing and simulation, multiscale modeling, and data analytics provide new avenues to addressing these challenges in structural materials for advanced reactors. This symposium emphasizes not only the evaluation of existing material systems under new conditions, but also the design of advanced structural materials spanning across alloys, ceramics, composites, etc. Both experimental and computational work are welcome.

Abstracts are solicited in, but not limited to, the following areas:
• Novel structural material concepts for enhanced radiation tolerance
• New manufacturing processes (e.g., additive manufacturing)
• High-throughput testing and characterization of materials for nuclear applications
• Multiscale modeling and simulation
• High-throughput simulation and machine learning
• Corrosion in non-LWR and accidental conditions
• Microstructural evolution under extreme environments
