The second event in the 2015-2016 PONI Conference Series will be held September 22-23 at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in Richland, Washington.

The two-day conference will feature panels of presentations from young nuclear experts covering topics including tracking nuclear material, nuclear security and insider threats, regional nuclear flashpoints, and new thinking on proliferation. The conference will also include keynote addresses by Frank Klotz, Under Secretary for Nuclear Security and NNSA Administrator; a break-out small group discussion; and an optional lab tour.

Registration for the conference is now closed. Please contact Sarah Minot with any questions.

The PONI Conference Series, now in its twelfth year, offers an opportunity for rising experts in the field to present findings on 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 will feature a Winter Conference on December 9-10, 2015 at CSIS in Washington, DC, and a Capstone Conference at U.S. Strategic Command on April 12, 2016 in Omaha, Nebraska.
