The U.S. Department of Energy / National Nuclear Security Administration’s Office of Global Threat Reduction in cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency hosted the “RERTR 2011 International Meeting on Reduced Enrichment for Research and Test Reactors.” The meeting was organized by Argonne National Laboratory, Chilean Nuclear Energy Commission (CCHEN) and Idaho National Laboratory and was held in Santiago, Chile from October 23-27, 2011. This was the 33rd annual meeting in a series on the same general subject regarding conversion of reactors within the Global Threat Reduction Initiative.

RERTR-2011 was attended by 153 technical and policy experts from twenty-eight countries and the IAEA. The technical program consisted of 87 papers presented in fifteen oral sessions and one poster session during the four-day-long meeting. Policy papers were presented the first day, in particular from the IAEA and NNSA with emphasis on HEU minimization progress and US – Russian cooperation in ongoing research reactor conversion activities. Throughout the week as many as thirty-seven side meetings were held with participants to discuss progress in the respective conversion projects.

During the meeting Andrew Bieniawski (DOE-NNSA Assistant Deputy Administrator of the Office of Global Threat Reduction) presented an award to Jordi Roglans-Ribas for excellence in managing the International Reactor Conversion Program.

The abstracts and full papers of RERTR-2011 are now being collected and will be soon available on the RERTR- 2011 web site.
