Registration is now available online or through the PDF registration form.

The purpose of the Environmental Degradation of Materials conference series is to foster an exchange of ideas about such problems and their remedies in water-cooled nuclear power plants of today and the future. The conferences cover material problems facing nickel-based alloys, stainless steels, pressure vessel and piping steels, zirconium alloys, and other alloys in water environments of relevance. Components covered include pressure boundary components, reactor vessels and internals, steam generators, fuel cladding, irradiated components, fuel storage containers, and balance of plant components and systems.

Apply for a Student Grant

The organizing committee for Environmental Degradation 2017 is making available a number of $500 grants to help defer the costs of attending the conference, with preference give to student participants, student poster participants, Ph.D. students, and students whose thesis best fits the conference topics. These are not criteria for application, but rather for selecting the grants.

If you are selected to receive a grant, you may be requested to assist the organizing committee with small tasks (assisting with the registration desk, etc.) during the conference.

To apply for a student grant, submit your completed form for consideration no later than July 21, 2017.
