SUMMARY: The Office of Fuel Cycle Technologies will be hosting a one-
day informational meeting at the Argonne National Laboratory in Lemont,

knowledgeable in nuclear fuel cycles, including those from the public, 
universities, industry and national laboratories.

DATES: The meeting will be held on Wednesday, April 25, 2012 from 8:30 
a.m. to approximately 5:30 p.m.

ADDRESSES: Argonne National Laboratory, 9700 S. Cass Avenue, Lemont, IL

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The meeting is open to the public, however 
space is limited and pre-registration is required (see ADDRESSES 
above). An agenda for the meeting is available at http://www.inl.gov/conferences/nfco/. This meeting is part of the activities leading to a 
comprehensive evaluation and screening of nuclear fuel cycle options in 
2013. At this meeting, input is being sought from participants 
knowledgeable in nuclear fuel cycles, particularly including those from 
the public, universities, industry and national laboratories, to ensure 
that the set of fuel cycle options developed for the evaluation and 
screening provides a comprehensive representation of potential fuel 
cycle performance with respect to the evaluation criteria. The purpose 
of this meeting is NOT to seek input on the evaluation criteria or the 
pros and cons of any particular fuel cycle option. Opportunity for 
providing input on the evaluation criteria will occur in a future 
meeting later this year.
