Conference Scope
As a high-density energy with almost no discharge of greenhouse gas, nuclear energy plays an important role in long-term energy security and global warming prevention. However, to realize a sustainable development of nuclear energy for the future, it is necessary to save uranium resource and minimize radioactive waste. Advanced nuclear fuel cycle can achieve such goals, thus greatly contribute to the peaceful use of nuclear power for mankind. To provide a platform for the scientists mainly from China and Japan to discuss their academic achievements and exchange scientific information related to nuclear fuel cycle, we organized the 1st and 2nd China-Japan Academic Symposium on Nuclear Fuel Cycle (ASNFC 2011, ASNFC 2013) in Shanghai in 2011 and 2013 respectively. Following the previous symposiums of this series, the 3rd symposium ASNFC 2015 will be held from 2 to 5 December, 2015 in Tokyo, Japan.

Main Topics
- Basic chemistry of actinides and fission products
- Nuclear and radiochemistry related to nuclear fuel cycle
- Advanced reprocessing and separation technologies (hydro and pyro processes)
- Separation Chemistry of 4f/5f elements
