  • Few data exist for UO{sub 2} or UN within the notional design space for the Prometheus-1 reactor (low fission rate, high temperature, long duration). As such, basic testing is required to validate predictions (and in some cases determine) performance aspects of these fuels. Therefore, the MICE-3B test of UO{sub 2} pellets was designed to provide data on gas release, unrestrained swelling, and restrained swelling at the upper range of fission rates expected for a space reactor. These data would be compared with model predictions and used to determine adequacy of a space reactor design basis relative to fission gas releasemore » and swelling of UO{sub 2} fuel and to assess potential pellet-clad interactions. A primary goal of an irradiation test for UN fuel was to assess performance issues currently associated with this fuel type such as gas release, swelling and transient performance. Information learned from this effort may have enabled use of UN fuel for future applications.« less
  • LoopFest V is sponsored by the American Linear Collider Physics Working Group on higher-order calculations (LoopVerein) at a future international linear e{sup +}e{sup -} Collider (ILC). The LoopFest aims to provide a forum to coordinate activities focused on the theoretical challenges resulting from the ultra-high experimental precision of a future ILC.
  • This workshop was aimed at continuing discussions of the design for a very high luminosity e{sup +}e{sup -} collider using many of the same technical approaches as for the International Linear Collider. On this basis, the previous two meetings at Frascati have explored several new and promising ideas for reaching luminosities as high as 10{sup 36} cm{sup -2} s{sup -1} or more. We expect to continue the development of a coherent concept for the machine at the June meeting, ultimately aiming at a full written description of the concept by the end of 2006. The workshop also studied the capabilitymore » of SuperB for a full range of flavor physics, and the corresponding requirements and demands on the associated detector.« less
  • On June 11-13, 1991, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Technology Innovation Office and Risk Reduction Engineering Laboratory hosted an international conference in Dallas, TX, to exchange solutions to hazardous waste treatment problems. This conference, the Third Forum on Innovative Hazardous Waste Treatment Technologies: Domestic and International, was attended by approximately 750 representatives from the U.S. and several foreign countries. During the conference, scientists and engineers representing government agencies, industry, and academia attended 37 presentations describing domestic and international technologies for the treatment of waste, sludges, and contaminated soils at uncontrolled hazardous waste disposal sites. Technologies included physical/chemical, biological, thermal, andmore » stabilization techniques presented by EPA and other federal government agency contractors. Domestic and international scientists and vendors presented over 50 posters explaining their treatment methods and results.« less
  • As a result of the high level of interest in innovative hazardous waste control technologies, U.S. EPA's Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response and Risk Reduction Engineering Laboratory jointly conducted this conference. The conference consisted of presentations of technical papers and posters by international and domestic vendors of technologies for the treatment of waste, sludge, and contaminated soils at uncontrolled hazardous waste disposal sites. The purpose of the 2 1/2 day conference was two-fold: to help introduce promising international technologies through technical paper and poster displays; and to showcase results of the U.S. EPA Superfund Innovative Technology Evaluation programmore » technologies in addition to other domestic innovative technologies. Both were aimed at increasing awareness of the user community in technologies ready for application. The compendium does not include all papers that were presented; only those that were made available by authors and their institutions are included.« less
