Embracing an industry-wide trend, the Way Forward was the theme of the 13th International Conference on Environmental Degradation of Materials in Nuclear Power Systems. The conference, which is held every other year by a rotating group of technical societies, took place in Whistler, British Columbia, Canada, August 19–23. Among the conference's new offerings were an opening plenary and a special session on materials degradation issues of particular interest to Canadian plants. This year's conference was sponsored by the Canadian Nuclear Society, with TMS, the American Nuclear Society, and NACE International providing co-sponsorship support.
