- Numerical simulations

In the session a total of 93 oral presentations were given. Most presentation (pdf files) are available on the conference web site The proceedings (103 papers) were published by Taylor & Francis, editors A. Van Cotthem, R. Charlier, J-F. Thimus & J-P.

A number of 146 participants from 27 countries were welcomed at the Conference. A technical exhibition with 3 exhibitors also accompanied the Conference.

The 2 technical tours led respectively to the underground research laboratory of Euridice in Mol (a facility for studying nuclear wastes repository) and to the Grouft highway tunnel in Luxembourg.

The social program contained a banquet at “Chateau de Colonster” and a reception at the “Palais des Princes-Evêques”.
