General Information

"What is Resilience?
Resilience for Nuclear Power Plant, for Industries, for Society"

The second International Conference on Maintenance Science and Technology (ICMST2014) will take place from 2 (Sun) to 5 (Wed) November 2014 at Kobe University Centennial Hall and Takikawa Memorial Hall in Kobe. The first ICMST conference was successfully held during November 11-14, 2012 at the University of Tokyo with 187 participants from 13 countries. The conference will be an international forum for presentations and discussions on important issues relating to maintenance and for the exchange of up-to-date information on advanced maintenance technologies for nuclear power plants. Maintenance Science and Technology is an engineering discipline that provides a basis for scientifically rational maintenance activities. The discipline optimizes maintenance activities from the viewpoints of safety and economics. After the Fukushima's accident, the credibility of nuclear safety has been an important issue worldwide. This conference will provide an opportunity to consider the contribution of maintenance activities to the safety management of the operation of nuclear power plants through thoughtful discussions.

Prospective authors are invited to submit full papers describing original research work in areas (Scope of ICMST) including but not limited to:
Safety and Reliability
New Technology in Nuclear Power Plants
Decommissioning of Fukushima Plant
Safety Enhancement Program in the Post-Fukushima Period
Maintenance Technology for Aging Nuclear Plants
Advanced Maintenance Technology in Sustainable Society
Education and Training for Maintenance
Maintenance Related Issues

The two pages short papers will undergo a peer-review process. The accepted contributions will be included in the Symposium Proceedings. Authors of accepted short papers will be solicited to submit the full version (within 6 pages) that, after a peer-review process, will be published in a special issue of the e-Journal of Advanced Maintenance (EJAM Academic Article Section).
