The objective of INGSM is to provide a forum for information exchange on all aspects from nuclear graphite, ranging from the development of future advanced reactor technology (High Temperature Reactors, Molten-Salt Reactors) to the treatment and disposal of irradiated graphite waste.

The main themes of the INGSM-20 meeting are to explore the entire nuclear graphite life cycle and the technical issues which are presented in the design, operation and decommissioning of graphite moderated nuclear reactors.
