The official archival Proceedings of SMR2014 are now published on the ASME Digital Collection. The Abstract page for each paper is open to public view and contains all the information that you need to cite your paper.

The ASME 2014 Small Modular Reactors Symposium (SMR2014) addresses the technical, business and regulatory issues for the deployment of small modular reactors. We go beyond just the high level strategy presentations you see at other SMR events. SMR 2014 also gets into the technical details for bringing SMRs from design and concept into fabrication and building.

Small modular reactors are some of the most promising reactor concepts, offering advantages such as enhanced safety, in-factory modular construction, lower up front capital costs per unit, distributed generation and availability for non-power generation applications.
