We are pleased to inform you that the Nuclear Research Group of San Piero a Grado (GRNSPG) of University of Pisa (UNIPI), the Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute (KAERI), the University of Zagreb (FER) and the School of Industrial Engineering of Barcelona (ETSEIB) are jointly organizing the Seminar and Training to transfer competence, knowledge and experience in the area of Scaling, Uncertainty and 3D Coupled Code Calculations (3D S.UN.COP 2012).


The Seminar will take place from 9 to27 April 2012 in Daejeon (Korea) at the premises of Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute (KAERI). Further details are provided inthe attachmentsand are available at:  http://grnspg.ing.unipi.it/3dsuncop . The deadline for registration is 31 December 2012.


The seminar is subdivided into three parts and participants may choose to attend a one-, two- or three-week course depending on their interest in the following topics:

1)   Fundamental Theoretical Aspects of the Methodologies;

2)   Industrial Applications of Best Estimate Plus Uncertainty (e.g. from AECL, AREVA, Westinghouse, GEH), Foundation of Statistical Methods, Coupling Methodologies and Code Hands-on Training (e.g. RELAP, CATHENA, PARCS, TRACG, GOTHIC, RELAP5/SCDAP, Star-CD) and Special Sessions devoted to Computational Fluid Dymanics, Severe Accident Analysis, BEPU and CANDU Technologies.

3)   Advanced User Training, including Code Hands-on Training for Transient Analysis.
