Abstract: The proceedings of the first annual Conference on High Level Radioactive Waste Management, held on April 8-12, 1990, Las Vegas, Nevada, provides information on the current technical issues related to international high level radioactive waste management activities and how they relate to society as a whole. Besides discussing such technical topics as intraplate seismotectonics, transport processes, geochemistry, and rock mass characterization, the broader social aspects of these issues are explored in papers on such subjects as public involvement, institutional impacts, regulations, and environmental and health effects. By providing this wider perspective of high level waste management, it becomes apparent that the various disciplines involved in this field are interrelated and that they should work to integrate their waste management activities.
