Argonne hosting Modeling, Experimentation and Validation (MeV) Summer School
Mar. 3, 2011 - Updated on Mar. 25, 2011
Argonne National Laboratory is hosting a 10-day school this summer to provide early-career nuclear engineers with advanced studies in integrated modeling, experimentation and validation to prepare them for some of the key challenges and demands facing the nuclear energy renaissance. The Modeling, Experimentation and Validation (MeV) summer school is intended to fill a critical educational gap for engineers and applied scientists involved in the design, licensing and operation of 21st century nuclear power plants.
This year, the school is scheduled to run July 19-28 at Argonne National Laboratory in Argonne, IL. The event is sponsored by Argonne National Laboratory, Idaho National Laboratory, Idaho State University, the Center for Advanced Energy Studies and Oak Ridge National Laboratory. The first two schools were hosted by Idaho National Laboratory in 2009 and 2010. The next school, in 2012, will be held at Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
The school is being organized through the cooperation of national laboratories and universities that share the goal of building a strong work force to support global nuclear expansion. The faculty will be drawn from the top experts in universities, laboratories, government and industry. The general organization and conduct of the school will be overseen by an international board of senior experts. A local secretariat will provide technical, logistical and administrative support to students and faculty.
Cost of the school is $3,000 which includes room and board. Detailed program information, registration procedures and the school application are available at http://www.mevschool.org/.
The application deadline has been extended to April 11, 2011, and acceptance notification will be given by April 22. For more information, please contact Brea Grischkat at .
