"Plutonium Futures – The Science" is a series of conferences providing an international forum for the presentation and discussion of current research on the physical and chemical properties of plutonium and other actinide elements. The scope of the conference ranges from the complexities of condensed matter physics in plutonium to important practical issues such as trace detection of plutonium in the environment. In bringing together people from this diverse range of disciplines to illustrate and enhance capabilities and interests, the conference aims to discuss the current and emerging science of plutonium and actinide materials.

Scientists, engineers and students from universities and (inter)national laboratories are encouraged to participate and make technical contributions.

The 2008 conference, the fifth in the series, will be held in Dijon, the principal town of the Burgundy region in France. Dijon is famed for its mustard and produces some of the best wine in the world. It also has an exceptional architectural heritage and boasts many beautifully preserved national monuments. Your trip will allow you to discover the French art of hospitality and gastronomy.
