The International Congress on Advances in Nuclear Power Plants takes place 3rd-6th May 2015 in Nice, France.

For the 2015 event, two new workshops addressing current and future challenges of nuclear energy will take place:

* Nuclear Power and Climate change: as a low-carbon energy, nuclear is a part of the solution to protect clean air and healthy communities. ICAPP 2015 is the opportunity to demonstrate the vital importance of nuclear to fight efficiently climate change.

* New and Rising Nuclear Countries: the increase of installed capacities in China, India, Korea, Russia and newcomers raises the question of conditions for success

More than 500 technical abstracts have also been received from 40 countries.
