After discussions with various stakeholders, the 13TH INTERNATIONAL TOPICAL MEETING ON NUCLEAR REACTOR THERMAL-HYDRAULICS, OPERATION AND SAFETY (NUTHOS13) conference scheduled for Aug 23 – 26 at the Sheraton Vancouver Wall Centre, Vancouver, BC has been cancelled. Also, a postponement date within 12 months could not be achieved. The CNS regrets having to make this decision; however, the risk to holding a successful conference was too great.
Further discussion with stakeholders will continue to look for opportunities for the CNS to host NUTHOS in the future.
Possible impact on COVID-19 other CNS events planned for 2020 are considered daily. Further updates will be made as the situation unfolds.
