Thorium Energy Conference - ThEC11

Update: Before ThEC11 we arranged ThEC10 in London

The following conferences have been held after ThEC11:

2013 – ThEC13 in Geneva at CERN

2012 – ThEC12 in Shanghai

ThEC11 in New York

The Thorium Energy Conference 2011 provided a unique and convenient, cross-disciplinary platform, for people involved in the field of thorium energy to be introduced, to speak, and to discover.


The ThEC11 Program is full of exciting topics and speakers. Some of the highlights can be found below. To view or download each speakers presentation in PDF-format, please click on any of the titles below.
