The Conference

A Week of Powerful Talks
29th March 2020

PHYSOR 90 was held in Marseille, France. This was the first Physics of Reactors Conference held outside the USA. Subsequent overseas PHYSOR conferences were held in Japan (1996); South Korea (2002); Switzerland (2008); and Japan (2014). Only one of the four overseas PHYSOR topical meetings has been held outside Asia and, in 2020, 12 years will have passed since it was last held in Europe.

PHYSOR2020 will be hosted by the University of Cambridge and its Nuclear Energy Research Group within the Department of Engineering, supported by University of Birmingham. A world-leading centre of excellence in science and engineering, the university is home to the famous Cavendish Laboratory where the neutron itself was discovered by James Chadwick in 1932.  


The FDS Team, originated from the Institute of Nuclear Energy Safety Technology, CAS  This multidisciplinary team focusing on neutron physics, advanced fission and fusion energy, and extended nuclear technology applications, following the mission statement "Better Nuclear Technology, Better Life". A series of hi-tech products have been developed by FDS, such as FDS Series Software, Accurate Radiotherapy System "KylinRay" and China Lead-based Mini-Reactor "CLEAR-M". The FDS Team has published over 1000 papers, received more than 300 patents, and have won several prestigious prizes including the European Prize for Innovation in Fusion Research, the American Nuclear Society FED Outstanding Achievements Award, and the National Natural Science Award conferred by President Xi Jinping.

Frazer-Nash is a leading systems and engineering technology company, with over three decades of experience in the nuclear industry. It supports projects in new build, life cycle support, decommissioning, and nuclear fusion energy


EDF Energy is the UK's largest producers of low-carbon energy, managing both renewable sources and eight nuclear power stations. EDF Energy is also investing in nuclear new build projects at Hinkley Point C and Sizewell C to secure reliable, low-carbon, affordable energy to meet the UK's growing demand and ambitious emissions goals

WELCOME - EDF energy

AWE has supported the UK Government’s nuclear defence strategy and the Continuous At Sea Deterrent for almost 70 years. They also use their nuclear know-how and technical expertise to provide innovative solutions that support the UK’s counter-terrorism and nuclear threat reduction activities

WELCOME - Atomic Weapons Establishment

TechnicAtome specialises in design, construction, commissioning and operational maintenance of compact nuclear reactors. For over 45 years, it has been providing its nuclear engineering expertise for reactors, fuels and associated facilities, and offers its customers solutions and products that meet the highest standards of safety and availability

WELCOME - Technicatome

Rolls-Royce powers the UK’s nuclear underwater defences. Their market-leading position in submarine propulsion systems encompasses everything from design and procurement to manufacture and in-service support. For the last 60 years they have designed, supplied and supported the nuclear propulsion plant that provides power for all of the UK Royal Navy's nuclear submarines. They are also pioneering low carbon energy technology in the UK by leading a consortium to develop an affordable power plant that generates electricity using a small modular reactor.

WELCOME - Rolls-Royce

CEA designed the first generation of reactors in the French fleet and continues to coordinate research and innovation in the nuclear sector.

Their work focuses on defence and security, low carbon energies (nuclear and renewable), technological research for industry, and fundamental research in the physical and life sciences
