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.  


Every two years, the PHYSOR conference presents the largest showcase of reactor physics research in the world. This provides your organization with an excellent opportunity to offer products, research and services to the nuclear community and to visitors from all over the world.
