The International Congress on Advances in Nuclear Power Plants (ICAPP) provides a forum for leaders of the nuclear industry to exchange information, present results from their work, review the state of the industry, and discuss future directions and needs for the deployment of new nuclear power plant systems around the world. ICAPP will gather industry leaders in several invited lectures in plenary sessions.
The theme for ICAPP2017 is A New Paradigm in Nuclear Power Safety. Since the Fukushima Daiichi Accident in 2011, various efforts in improving nuclear safety have been initiated not only in Japan but also in other countries. Decontamination of affected soil and steps toward decommissioning Fukushima Daiichi are proceeding steadily, but many issues to be resolved still remain. Further advances in reactor decommissioning technologies are expected in light of the rising number of old nuclear power plants being closed. The congress also provides an excellent opportunity to discuss these topics.
ICAPP is an annual event, cosponsored by AESJ, ANS, KNS, SFEN, and a number of major international nuclear societies, and is held in cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency. Since its inception in 2002, ICAPP has been held biannually in the USA, and in Europe and Asia during the years in between.
