Scope Materials scientists and engineers face unique challenges when working in applications such as nuclear power generation and nuclear waste remediation. The rising global energy demand necessitates the development and understanding of novel materials capable of withstanding extreme environments associated with nuclear power reactors. At the same time, these energy producing technologies, along with legacy defense programs, have produced waste streams that pose environmental, social, and political challenges for the researchers tasked with safely disposing of nuclear waste. The science of glass, ceramic, cementitious, composite, and non-metallic materials plays an integral role in both nuclear power generation and nuclear waste disposal – whether it be in novel ceramic fuels for next generation nuclear reactors or immobilizing volatile radionuclides in intermediate processes and final waste forms. This symposium, sponsored by NETD, solicits abstracts addressing a wide range of topics covering fundamental and applied materials science related to nuclear applications and extreme environments as well as issues in nuclear waste management including (but not limited to):

• Radiation damage and defect evolution
• Novel materials for extreme environments
• Advanced nuclear fuels
• Microstructure/property relationships in irradiated materials
• Modeling of radiation effects
• Novel nuclear waste forms
• Capture and immobilization of volatile radionuclides
