The book represents a collection of papers prepared for and presented by specialists of seven concerned countries in the fourth Advanced Research Workshop (ARW), Moscow, September 22-24, 2004, sponsored and organized within the framework of the NATO-Russia partnership.

Similar to the three previous publications, which collected the materials of the NATO-Russia ARWs held in Moscow in 1995, 1997 and 2002, this fourth book also addresses a very important challenge of the present – complex decommissioning of the nuclear-powered vessels taken out of service and environmental rehabilitation of the centers of basing and everyday running of different-type nuclear vessels. This book specifically focuses on the scientific and technical problems of management of spent naval nuclear fuel and radioactive waste.

Some papers of the book address the first results of the "Strategic Master-plan ("Master-plan") for complex decommissioning of Russian nuclear-powered vessels" developed in Russia with active participation and large financial support of the international community.

This fourth book, taken together with the papers of the three previous NATO ARWs published earlier, represents the most complete collection of materials on complex decommissioning of nuclear-powered vessels including the spent nuclear fuel management-related challenge.

The book is intended for scientists, engineers and technicians concerned with the decommissioning of nuclear-hazardous objects, but it may be also of interest for specialists developing standard, managerial and engineering documentation as well as for those involved in the decision-making on the problems under consideration.
