The NEA will organise the second International School on Simulation of Nuclear Reactor Systems (SINUS) on the topic of Reactor single- and multi-physics simulations based on Light Water Reactor (LWR) Uncertainty Analysis in Modeling (UAM) benchmark. Targeting students and young professionals in the nuclear sector, the course will bring together the next generation of experts with the expert community from the NEA Working Party on Scientific Issues and Uncertainty Analysis of Reactor Systems (WPRS).

The trainings will include practical exercises with state-of-the-art reactor simulation packages, which are provided by the NEA Data Bank and RSICC. 

SINUS provides an opportunity to develop a multinational network with fellow participants and international experts, and to learn more about this challenging and innovative subject. Each participant receives a certificate of completion of the course.

The course is open to advanced Master’s students, PhD students, or young professionals with a Master’s or PhD degrees in nuclear engineering, reactor physics, nuclear physics, and related disciplines. Participants should have:

  • Basic knowledge of radiation transport and reactor physics;
  • Basic knowledge of numerical mathematics, statistics, and scientific computing;
  • First practical experience with numerical simulation software.

(!) Participants can apply to join the event until 15 February 2024.
