About the Conference

Virtual

November 29th to December 1st, 2021.


On behalf of the organizing committee, the Canadian Nuclear Society is proud to host the second Conference on AI, ML and other Innovative Technologies in the Nuclear Industry (CAIMIN 2021) from November 29th to December 1st, 2021. The conference will attract hundreds of influential and forward-thinking professionals from the nuclear and other related industries.

The conference is a forum to lay the foundation for taking your ML efforts to the next level and for sharing the latest knowledge and experiences on adopting innovative technologies, ideas, methodologies and algorithms including different means of AI and ML. The discussions and sessions will allow everyone to share how these ideas are shaping our organizations while helping us perform our tasks safer, more efficiently and more accurately. During the 3-day event there will be plenary and technical sessions including papers, panel sessions and other discussions on a variety of topics related to AI, ML and innovations in the nuclear industry.

Innovation is what kept the nuclear industry so strong for the past 40 years and what will keep us strong in the future as we move forward to address modern challenges as we move through the 21st century.  Influence of AI and ML on our daily lives is greater than ever with industries adopting AI to their benefit and the nuclear industry in Canada is not exempted from this. This conference will focus on how individuals, groups and companies in the nuclear industry are turning to innovative technologies and methodologies to face modern challenges. Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Big Data are increasingly being utilized to obtain new insight, perform analysis more efficiently and more accurately, be more sustainable and improve safety. Other technologies such as Adaptive Manufacturing, Digital Twins and Virtual Reality are being actively explored and implemented by those involved in nuclear activities and research.

In keeping with this, the theme for this year is:
