IYNC2020 Call for Papers

The International Youth Nuclear Congress (IYNC) is excited to open the first Call for Papers. An important cornerstone of IYNC has always been the Technical Content. IYNC is a perfect scenario to share your latest works and research with other participants from all around the world as they have always believed that communicating, debating and sharing ideas is a very important factor to move forward. The communication and discussions with other professionals is enhanced by the young spirit of the congress. In this sense, IYNC would like you to participate in this conversation by helping to spread the call for papers within your network.

contributions can be presented in the form of a Poster or an Oral Presentation.
Moreover, the contributions will pass through a peer-review process formed by
the IYNC2020 Technical Track Managers, and the best papers will be published in
the Journal
of Nuclear Engineering and Radiation Science

Papers are due to be submitted by July 15, 2019, IYNC will be accepting contributions via the IYNC2020 Indico System.

guidelines, template and protocol for the submission can be also found in the Indico
