Paris hosts the

International Conference
NPC 2012
on Water Chemistry of Nuclear Reactor Systems
from September, Sunday 23 to Thursday 27
and the

9th Intl Workshop,


on Radiolysis, Electrochemistry & Materials Performance
on September, Friday 28

> Following successful NPC 2008 Berlin and NPC 2010 Qubec, the NPC 2012 Paris conference is a major event
for nuclear plant Chemists and Radiochemists. Research, new development, operating experience, long life
duration, new environmental rules, so many areas to investigate and a meeting place to discuss with many
colleagues to prepare future stakes.
>The first workshop on light water reactor (LWR) coolant radiolysis and electrochemistry was held in 1998 to
discuss and to exchange on the fundamental basis of water radiolysis and electrochemistry and their
application to LWR fields. Following the successful workshops that have been held in conjunction with the
International Conference on Water Chemistry of Nuclear Reactor Systems, the 9th workshop will cover any
aspect of aqueous electrochemistry or radiation chemistry relevant to any part of the nuclear cycle.
