The PONI Conference Series, now in its ninth year, offers an opportunity for rising experts in the field to present findings from their research in order to advance the broader discussion on nuclear weapons issues. It also seeks to provide a venue for interaction among people from different sectors and for mid-career and senior members of the community to mentor their junior counterparts. This year’s series has included a spring conference at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and a summer conference at Los Alamos National Laboratory and will culminate in a capstone conference at U.S. Strategic Command in Omaha, Nebraska on March 19, 2013.
