sustainable development through nuclear science and technology



Introduction

Nuclear Science, Technology and Engineering Conference (NuSTEC) is an annual nuclear-themed conference jointly organised by the Malaysian Nuclear Society (MNS) with an institution of higher learning. NuSTEC started in 2008, after the Commemoration event of Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings hosted by MNS. NuSTEC2008 received good feedback with more than 200 papers from MNS, local and foreign participants comprising mainly of researchers and postgraduate students.

NuSTEC has always had the support (as partcipants and invited speakers) of nuclear science societies from Japan, Korea, China, Thailand , Indonesia including the prestigious International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in all its past conferences.

This year, the Faculty of Applied Sciences, UiTM, Shah Alam is proud and honoured to be cohosting International NuSTEC2016 with MNS. NuSTEC2016 hopes to emulate the success of iNuSTEC2015 previously coorganized by Universiti Sains Islam Malaysia (USIM) and MNS. This conference hopes to provide a platform to foster better understanding and dissemination of current nuclear issues among the young generation especially university students. This, in turn will simultaneously improve the recognition status and name of the organising university. NuSTEC2016 will also receive collaboration and support from other agencies and higher learning institutions such as

  • MALAYSIAN NUCLEAR SCIENCE AGENCY (MNS)
  • UNIVERSITI TENAGA NASIONAL (UNITEN)
  • UNIVERSITI MALAYA (UM)
  • UNIVERSITI KEBANGSAAN MALAYSIA (UKM)
  • UNIVERSITI ISLAM ANTARABANGSA MALAYSIA (UIAM)
  • UNIVERSITI SAINS ISLAM MALAYSIA (USIM)
  • UNIVERSITI TEKNOLOGI MALAYSIA (UTM)

With 200 target participants, NuSTEC2016 will have at least 100 research papers relating to the various nuclear areas highlighted in the conference. To ensure widespread and respected knowledge dissemination and access, NuSTEC2016 will publish all accepted and reviewed papers in a Scorpus-indexed journal or proceedings.
