International Conference on Tritium Science and Technology – Tritium 2022 is an opportunity to have valuable interactions among scientists and engineers, to exchange the knowledges achieved on all scientific and engineering researches in tritium science and technology, and to initiate future borderless collaborations.
The International Conference on Tritium Science and Technology first meeting was in 1980, in Dayton, Ohio, with the occasion of a national meeting of the American Nuclear Society. This conference is organized by rotation on three continents North America, Europe, and Asia every three years. Since then, another twelve conferences have taken place all around the world: Dayton, USA (1985), Toronto, Canada (1988), Albuquerque, USA (1991), Belgirate, Italy, (1995), Tsukuba, Japan (2001), Baden-Baden, Germany (2004), Rochester, USA (2007), Nara, Japan (2010), Nice, France (2013), Charleston, USA (2016) and Busan, Korea, (2019). Hundreds of participants from many countries of North America, Europe, and Asia attended these conferences. The accepted papers were published in a special issue of the journal “Fusion Science and Technology”, a journal of the American Nuclear Society.
In 2019, in Busan, Korea, the Steering Committee of the conference decided to give the honour of hosting the 13th edition of the National Research and Development Institute for Cryogenic and Isotopic Technologies in Ramnicu Vâlcea, Romania.
Therefore, in Bucharest, between 15th to 20th of May 2022, the Technical Organizing Committee aim to create the best framework for the information exchange about the latest researches in the field of tritium for fusion, fission, and other isotopic applications.
”Romania may not be as well-known in North America as the Western European countries, but that doesn't mean it is an insignificant part of the world.” (source: http://romaniatourism.com/did-you-know.html”
Bucharest, the Romanian capital is: ”…a happy combination of its past eras, it breathes the bohemian perfume of little Paris, as it was once called, boasts edifices of modern architecture, including remnants of its former communist regime (1945-1989), and is developing the attributes of a metropolis.”
The venue of the conference, Radisson Blu Hotel, which stands near Bucharest Old Town, within a short walk of the famous Revolution Square, of the National Museum of Art, of the Romanian Athenaeum Concert Hall, and of the beautiful gardens of Cișmigiu Park, will be waiting for you, to offer you the warmly Romanian hospitality.

We consider that even if, in 2022, will be available the necessary tools to control the COVID-19 pandemic, however, we must be prepared for a hybrid conference.
The Technical Organizing Committee, the Local Organizing Committee and the International Steering Committee wishes you, all the participants, a successful conference and a wonderful springtime week in Bucharest.
