The PONI Conference Series, now in its twelfth 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 will feature three regional conferences and a Capstone Conference at U.S. Strategic Command in Omaha, Nebraska.
