17. International Conference on Emerging Nuclear Energy Systems

Dear Colleagues and Friends,
It is my pleasure to invite you to attend the 17th International Conference on Emerging
Nuclear Energy Systems (ICENES2015), which will take place in MAy 2015 inclusive, in
Antalya, Türkiye.
This conference will consist of an informative and comprehensive scientific program,
featuring oral and poster presentations and a commercial exhibition. This will provide a
unique opportunity to become familiar with the most recent advancements in innovative
nuclear energy systems, as well as looking at “bold” and “unthinkable” ideas on a sound
scientific-technical basis. The forum will also be open to intellectual debate leading to
practical applications around innovative non-nuclear technologies, such as hydrogen
energy, solar energy, deep space exploration and others.
Earlier conferences were held in Graz (Austria), Lausanne (Switzerland), Helsinki (Finland),
Madrid (Spain), Karlsruhe (Germany), Monterey (USA), Chiba (Japan), Obninsk (Russia), TelAviv (Israel), Petten (The Netherlands), Albuquerque (USA), Brussels (Belgium) and İstanbul
(Türkiye), Ericeira (Portugal), San Francisco (U. S. A.) , Madrid (Spain). It has been the
tradition of the ICENES conference series to select conference venues with unique features.
For 2015, one of the most beautiful and most attractive touristical regions of Türkiye will
host ICENES 2015, where see and mountains embrace each other.
We feel sure that you will enjoy the meeting facilities at the congress venue. You will enjoy
our assistance to ensure your stay with us is fascinating, rewarding and memorable. I am
confident you will all be delighted with your stay in Antalya where you will have the
opportunity to experience the renowned Turkish hospitality.
