The International MELCOR Accident Consequence Code System (MACCS) User Group (IMUG) meeting and MACCS User Workshop will be held in June 2019 at the NRC Headquarters in Rockville, Maryland. The IMUG meeting is a forum for the exchange of information and research experience among users of the MACCS code. We expect technical presentations will cover a wide range of topics related to consequence analysis modelling (e.g., atmospheric transport, dosimetry, protective actions, health effects, societal and economic consequences) as well as various case studies and applications from the MACCS user community. Topics are not limited to just the MACCS code, as approaches using other consequence codes or methods are also welcome. IMUG presentations from previous years are available at https://maccs.sandia.gov/events.aspx, and more meeting information will become available, on this website, as the date of the meetings approach. The dates for these meetings are as follows:

  • IMUG Meeting:  June 10-11, 2019
  • MACCS User Workshop: June 12-14, 2019
