Dear Lori,

As information and restrictions have developed regarding the COVID-19 outbreak in our community, the local planning committee for the Molten Salt Reactor (MSR) Workshop has made the difficult decision to postpone the event to 2021. Though this decision was not made lightly, the guidance received from our local government and public health authorities, as well as considering potential health risks and travel restrictions, all weighed heavily on the outcome of this event.

Please mark your calendars for August 30 – September 2, 2021 to attend the MSR Workshop at PNNL’s Discovery Hall in Richland, Washington. We greatly apologize for the postponement of the Workshop and appreciate your support as we move forward in future planning. Please keep an eye on our MSR Workshop 2021 website. We are committed to share event updates with you and build momentum as we prepare to see you next year.

If you have already submitted an abstract for the MSR Workshop, you will have the opportunity to resubmit your abstract the beginning of 2021. Please email with any further questions. 

We look forward to seeing you all in 2021 and anticipate a very successful event.
