NURETH is the premier gathering for experts in nuclear reactor thermal hydraulics and related topical areas. This meeting is held every two years. The Washington DC ANS Section is pleased to host NURETH-20 in Washington, DC, USA. Washington, DC is more than the capital of the USA– it is the center of both support and regulation of the nuclear industry. Washington DC is not only a center of government but also a tremendous visitor center with cultural attractions for all.
