What is “Y-Notes” sessions
“Y-Notes” sessions were held each evening following the formal sessions to give participants a unique opportunity for international discussions about the challenges facing the nuclear industry. A representative sample of participants drawn from multiple viewpoints met in “Y-Notes” sessions to develop a statement summarizing the common theme of the discussion following each technical session. The session summary statements, along with proposed actions to address the challenges, were presented at a final plenary session to all participants for discussion, modification, and adoption by the Congress. All statements adopted by the Congress were combined into a final report and distributed to the media and interested individuals to demonstrate the young generation’s commitment to the future of nuclear technology.
