9th International Symposium "Conditioning of Radioactive Operational & Decommissioning Wastes"

April 15 – April 17, 2009 at the MARTIM Hotel & Internationales Congress Center Dresden


Starting with KONTEC ’93, the initiators of the KONTEC symposium series have created an institution which is to convene regularly power plant operating experts, equipment manufacturing experts and service people as well as reviewers and authorities representatives for exchange of experiences. In the course of the KONTEC symposium series 1993, 1995, 1997 and 1999 in Hamburg and 2001, 2003 and 2005 in Berlin and 2007 in Dresden, KONTEC could be extended into an international symposium which adopted decommissioning as a new topic, thereby establishing KONTEC as an important instrument for the exchange of information and experiences for the experts of this branch of industry. Consequently, the KONTEC symposia provide a valuable contribution to the solution of the problems with the conditioning of radioactive operational and decommissioning wastes as well as the decommissioning of nuclear facilities.
As lately for KONTEC 2007 again approximately 600 international participants are expected for KONTEC 2009.
The growing complexity of the special field under discussion at KONTEC is again taken into account by a stronger involvement of international papers in the various topical sessions of KONTEC 2009 and the ensuing international dialogue.
The results of BMBF’s r&d program “Decommissioning and Dismantling of Nuclear Facilities” will for the fourth time be presented at KONTEC 2009 (9th Status Report of BMBF and PTKA-WTE, its subordinate research unit). Such results reports will topically be assigned to the separate conference sessions.
