The purpose of the Student Program is to encourage the active participation of students in ICAPP 2016 by submitting high quality technical papers on the various aspects of the advances in nuclear power plants.

Students participating in this program will be expected to make a presentation during a technical session, as well as to design a poster summarizing their work to be exhibited and discussed during a poster session.  To qualify for the program, the student must be the first author of a paper, which has been accepted to one of the technical tracks.

This program seeks to promote the interaction of students with experienced nuclear professionals and to help them establish mentoring and networking links in their area of interest.
