Cape Cod, Massachusetts
This year's conference is being hosted by the MIT Nuclear Reactor Laboratory, and will take place on Cape Cod at the Red Jacket Beach Resort which is located in South Yarmouth, Massachusetts.
The ever-changing beauty of the Atlantic Ocean will be the backdrop for each day's meetings, and will serve as a reminder to members of the TRTR community why their continued pursuit and support of nuclear research is so important in a world striving to be "green." The university research and training reactor community has a distinguished history of providing the expertise and resources to students and researchers so that they can conduct the necessary research the United States needs to produce safe and reliable renewable nuclear energy as well as advancements in science and medicine. This meeting will give members of the university and test research organizations an opportunity to come together to discuss the challenges facing this community.
While you are attending the conference, we hope to share some of the history and charm that the Cape has to offer, from the Cape Cod Canal which divides the Cape from the rest of Massachusetts to the magnificent dunes that lead to to the tip of the Cape where you can visit Race Point Light House. There is much to do and see while visiting the Cape -- sandy beaches at every turn, golf courses galore, salt and fresh water fishing, shopping, and antique hunting. Night life on the Cape includes fine dining as well as top notch entertainment choices.
