    Abstract

    The 55th Annual Meeting on Hot Laboratories and Remote Handling – HOTLAB 2018, took place in Helsinki, Finland from the 16th to the 20th of September, 2018, hosted by the Technical Research Centre of Finland Ltd. Reflecting on the contemporary nuclear scene in Finland, the program was arranged to follow the life-cycle of hot laboratory operation in support of the peaceful use of nuclear power. The first sessions described designing and building of new hot cell facilities. These were followed by sessions featuring examples of hot cell utilization, covering PIE of nuclear fuel and nuclear power plant structural materials, and by sessions that highlighted special equipment for use in hot laboratories. Some aspects related to the management of hot cell facilities were highlighted in dedicated sessions, including special sessions on the management of aging facilities. Finally, the extension of aging management to decommissioning and handling of radioactive waste were highlighted in the last sessions of the meeting, concluding with conditioning of high-level waste like spent nuclear fuel for final disposal. In all the HOTLAB 2018 included almost 50 oral presentations and over 20 poster presentations.
