In September 2017, the Water Reactor Fuel Performance Meeting will be held in Jeju Island, which is the largest volcanic island in Korea and a premier tourist destination boasting mild weather as well as beautiful scenery of Hallasan National Park. This meeting will be a major forum for the exchange of information and knowledge of nuclear fuels, leading to enhanced safety of nuclear energy.
I hope that participants enjoy both the technical discussion on nuclear fuels and the breathtaking views of Jeju Island including some registered as a UNESCO World Natural Heritage.
