The objective of the OECD/NEA Information Exchange Programme on Actinide and Fission Product Partitioning and Transmutation (P&T), established in 1989, is to enhance the value of basic research in this area by facilitating the exchange of information and discussions of programmes, experimental procedures and results. The Information Exchange Meetings form an integral part of the Programme and are intended to provide a biennial review of the state of the art in P&T.
This book and its enclosed CD-ROM contain the proceedings of the 6th Information Exchange Meeting held in Madrid (Spain) on 11-13 December 2000. Recent developments and achievements and the new challenges in P&T are reported in four overview papers. Details are provided in the 79 papers that were presented during the meeting. The conclusions highlight some of the main aspects to take into consideration when planning future research and development on P&T.
