The International Conference on Mathematics & Computational Methods Applied to Nuclear Science & Engineering (M&C 2017) took place in Jeju, Korea in April http://www.mc2017.organd was attended by Dr Eugene Shwageraus, Dr Dani Kotlyar (a former post-doc at the Department of Engineering up until August 2016, and currently an Assistant Professor at Georgia Tech) and several PhD Students. The CUED participation in the conference was significant and included chairing technical sessions, oral presentations and posters.

 Dani Kotlyar

Dani Kotlyar has won the “Best Poster Award” for his work that he performed while at Cambridge on “Iteration-Free Coupled Monte Carlo with Thermal Hydraulic Method” co-authored by E. Shwageraus and researches from UC Berkeley M. Aufiero and M. Fratoni.

CUED faculty and students have co-authored 9 papers presented at the conference which are listed below:

Alan Charles and Geoff Parks, “Multi-objective Differential Evolution Algorithms for Optimization of Heterogeneous LWR Assemblies” (Presentation).
