PONI 2017 Fall Conference
The second conference of the 2017-2018 PONI Conference Series will be held on October 11-12 at Barksdale Air Force Base in Louisiana in partnership with Global Strike Command.
The two-day conference will feature a series presentations from emerging nuclear experts, keynote talks with senior leaders, tours of facilities at Barksdale Air Force Base, and a breakout discussion. The conference will be off-the-record, and a draft agenda will be posted shortly.
We have reserved a block of rooms on base at the Barksdale Inn (Barksdale AFB, 555 Davis Ave. West) for U.S. citizens at the cost of $61/night. Rooms can be reserved by calling 318-456-3091 and letting them know you are part of the “PONI Conference.” Foreign nationals can make their arrangements off base at the Hilton Garden Inn Shreveport Bossier City (318-759-1950), as they will need to be escorted any time they are on base.
The PONI Conference Series, now in its fourteenth year, is unique in its emphasis on featuring rising experts and young professionals in the nuclear field. The Conference Series draws emerging thought leaders from across the nuclear enterprise and policy community, and provides them with a visible platform for sharing their new thinking on a range of nuclear issues.
