     The 9th International Conference on Tritium Science and Technology continues the long tradition of meetings covering all topics on tritium originally founded in 1980 in Dayton, Ohio.
     The objective of the conference is to provide a forum for an exchange of information on science, technology, engineering, and general experience in safe tritium handling for fusion, fission, pharmaceutical, and other isotopic applications for peaceful uses.
     This conference will offer a timely opportunity to discuss several recent international developments: commitments to incorporate tritium in large scale magnetic and inertial confinement fusion machines, renewed interest to mitigate tritium emissions in the fission power industry, and the expansion of the tritium handling industry.
     Tritium 2010 is intended to attract not only veteran tritium experts but also scientists, engineers and students who are new to the various fields of handling hydrogen isotopes.

     The fields of tritium conference include physics, chemistry, biology, environmental science, fission and fusion technology, isotopic applications, etc. The topics related to tritium and hydrogen isotopes are following:

          1. Containment, safety, and environmental impact
          2. Decontamination and waste management
          3. Detritiation, purification, and isotopic separation
          4. Handling facilities
          5. Biological effects, Industr
ial and biomedical applications
          6. Interactions with materials
          7. Isotope effects
          8. Measurement, monitoring, and accountancy
          9. Processing, transport, and storage
          10. Tracer technique
          11. Others

     Papers accepted after usual review process will be published in a special volume of "Fusion Science and Technology".

     The working language for the TRITIUM 2010 is English.
