Abstract: This is the 7th version of an international workshop series initiated by Dr. Marius Stan from LANL and Prof. James Tulenko from the University of Florida. From its inception the main goal has been to stimulate nuclear fuel research at various space and time scales. It started in Santa Fe in 2003 with approximately 30 participants, mainly from the USA. Over the years, the organising committee has been expanded to include partners from the EU and Asia (Japan), and the location of the workshop is therefore also rotating between the continents. After the successful meeting last year in Tokyo, we are pleased today to break the record of participation with 62 colleagues from 15 countries, representing partners from Russia and Ukraine, the CMSN (Computational Materials Science Network) in the USA, from the NXO project in Japan, the new Working Party on Multi-scale Modelling of Fuels and Structural Materials for Nuclear Systems (WPMM) from the NEA, and finally from the F-BRIDGE project and ACTINET network of excellence in Europe. The ACTINET network of excellence is sponsoring the workshop this year. The general increase in interest for the MMSNF workshops over the years has culminated in a balanced program covering now sessions on ¿ first principle calculations ¿ classical molecular dynamics simulations ¿ thermodynamics ¿ meso-scopic and macro-scopic models ¿ fuel performance codes for various GEN-IV fuels. It is well balanced because of the inclusion of presentations about experimental data for all scales. This year we also have specific presentations about cladding material, which is line with the objectives of the WPMM established in January 2008 by the NEA and chaired by Dr. Mireille Defranceschi (will be present).
