PSA 2013 will be of interest to traditional applications including nuclear reactor facilities, nonreactor installations, processing, decontamination & decommissioning, and storage, as well as other non-traditional areas where probabilistic safety approaches are applied. The meeting will continue to follow lessons learned and impacts to PRA from the Fukushima Dai-ichi, explore progress on risk-informing regulation, provide status on the development of PRA standards, as well as many other topics during four days of planned paper and panel sessions. Dr. Shunsuke Kondo, the Chairman of the Japan Atomic Energy Commission, and Dr. George Apostolakis, U.S. NRC Commissioner, (among others) have agreed to brief attendees on timely PSA topics., as well as other leaders in the probabilistic safety and risk field worldwide.
