8th Clay Conference: abstract submission is now open

Planned in June 2020 before the Covid pandemic, the 8th Clay Conference has finally been postponed to June 13th-16th, 2022. To take into account the scientific work achieved since the former call for abstracts in 2019, the Organising Committe, in agreement with its Scientific Committee, decided to edit the scientific program and open a new call for abstracts.





The Organising Committee invite all scientists, engineers and PhD students involved in the field of Clays in natural and engineered barriers for radioactive waste confinement to submit their proposals for oral presentations or posters communications. 




As was the case for the previous Clay Conferences, the Scientific Committee will continue the tradition of offering to the most promising abstracts (both poster and oral presentations may qualify) to work towards publication. These contributions will have to be submitted as full papers and will be published after a regular peer review.

Please read carefully the submission guidelines before submitting your work!

Please note that all accepted abstracts will be published online on the Clay Conference 2022 website.

All authors having previously submitted are invited to update their former abstract and submit again during this new call, that is also open to new abstracts and/or new authors.

Please, do not hesitate to contact us for any question relating to your abstract submission:

​We look forward to meeting you next year in Nancy during our Clay Conference Nancy 2022.
