ICONE is the premier global conference on nuclear reactor technology. It has been jointly sponsored by the Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers and ASME since 1991–and co-sponsored with the CNS since 2005. This conference is a “must-attend” for anyone who wants to stay technically current and on top of industry trends and developments. It features Industry Forums, Technical, Keynote, Plenary and Poster Sessions, plus Workshops where international subject matter experts present their views and expertise on current topics of importance to the world-wide nuclear community. Leaders from industry, government and academia gather each year to present and explore cutting edge technical issues and solutions for the challenges that the nuclear industry faces today. Through the ICONE student program, the conference also fosters the development of future nuclear professionals.
