Registration is now open for the fall 2016 Low-Level Radioactive Waste Forum (LLW Forum) meeting, which will be held at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Saratoga Springs Hotel on November 7-8, 2016. Interested stakeholders are encouraged to register and make hotel reservations for the meeting at your earliest convenience, as there is limited space available in our discount room block. The New York State Energy and Research Development Authority (NYSERDA) is sponsoring the meeting.
The meeting documents—including bulletin and registration form—have been posted to the LLW Forum’s web site at www.llwforum.org.
Officials from states, compacts, federal agencies, nuclear utilities, disposal operators, brokers/processors, industry, and other interested parties are invited and encouraged to attend.
The meeting is an excellent opportunity to stay up-to-date on the most recent and significant developments in the area of low-level radioactive waste management and disposal. It also offers an important opportunity to network with other government and industry officials and to participate in decision-making on future actions and endeavors affecting low-level radioactive waste management and disposal.
