Press release date: March 9, 2009

W. CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa., 9 March 2009-Papers are invited for the 16th International Symposium on Zirconium in the Nuclear Industry, sponsored by ASTM International Committee B10 on Reactive and Refractory Metals and Alloys. The symposium will be held May 9-13, 2010, at the Intercontinental Hotel in Chengdu, Sichuan Province, China.

The purpose of the symposium is to provide a forum for exchanging new information on the fabrication, testing, development and characterization of zirconium-base materials in the nuclear industry, including material behavior during normal, transient and accident conditions and material behavior during intermediate and long-term storage conditions. Of special interest is the application of new alloys.

Appropriate topics for papers include, but are not limited to: basic metallurgy, processing and fabrication, alloy development, mechanical behavior, primary failure mechanisms, degradation mechanisms of failed fuel, corrosion and hydriding, in-reactor performance, irradiation effects, high-temperature and transient phenomena, mechanistic modeling of processing or performance, and intermediate and long-term storage performance.

To participate in the symposium, presenters/authors must submit the online abstract submittal form at, and attach a 250-300 word preliminary abstract by June 15, 2009. The abstract must include a clear definition of the objective and approach of the work discussed, pointing out material that is new, and present sufficient details regarding results. The presentation and manuscript must not be of a commercial nature nor can it have been previously published. The symposium co-chairs will notify you by Aug. 30, 2009, of your paper's acceptability for presentation. If the preliminary abstract is accepted, the presenter/author will be requested to submit a final camera-ready abstract several months before the symposium. The final abstracts will be distributed in a booklet at the symposium.

Symposium presenters are required to submit their papers to the Journal of ASTM International (JAI). JAI is an online, peer-reviewed journal for the international scientific and engineering community ( You may review the Web-based submission and peer-review site at Manuscripts to be peer reviewed for JAI are due online by Jan 10, 2010. Once the final selection of abstracts is approved, ASTM will send authors' instructions via e-mail. The author will receive a copy of his/her paper in a PDF.

Additional information is available from symposium co-chairs Magnus Limb¤ck, Westinghouse Electric Sweden, V¤ster¥s, Sweden (phone: +46-21-34-74-48;; or Zhao Wenjin, Nuclear Power Institute of China (NPIC), Chengdu, Sichuan Province, China (; or editorial chair Pierre Barbéris, Areva/Cezus Research Centre, Ugine, France (phone: +33-0-4-79-89-30-68;

Established in 1898, ASTM International is one of the largest international standards development and delivery systems in the world. ASTM International meets the World Trade Organization (WTO) principles for the development of international standards: coherence, consensus, development dimension, effectiveness, impartiality, openness, relevance and transparency. ASTM standards are accepted and used in research and development, product testing, quality systems and commercial transactions around the globe.
