The third event of the 2014-2015 PONI Conference Series will be held December 9-10 at CSIS in Washington, D.C.
The two-day conference will feature panels of presentations from young nuclear experts covering topics such as the nuclear triad and modernization, deterrence in the twenty-first century, arms control and verification, regional nuclear dynamics, and nonproliferation and nuclear security. The conference will include a keynote address by Secretary of the Air Force Deborah Lee James; breakfast and lunch both days and an evening reception and dinner at the end of Day One (December 9); and an optional simulation on the afternoon of Day Two (December 10).

The PONI Conference Series, now in its eleventh 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 individuals from different sectors and for mid-career and senior members of the community to mentor their junior counterparts. This year's series features three regional conferences and a Capstone Conference that will be held at U.S. Strategic Command in Omaha, Nebraska on March 4, 2015.
