The Project on Nuclear Issues (PONI) will host its 2024 Fall Conference at Stanford University on September 27th. The conference will explore topics related to the two peer challenge, including the emergence of China as a nuclear peer, competition with Russia, deterrence in a tripolar environment, the opportunistic aggression challenge, nuclear modernization for a period of renewed competition, and arms control with two nuclear peers. An agenda is forthcoming and the conference will be in-person only.

Applications for the conference are now open and will close on August 2nd, 2024.

Why Attend?  

The PONI Conference Series is unique in that it brings together junior and senior level professionals from the military, national laboratories, industry, academia, and policy sphere to hear select presentations on a range of topics related to nuclear weapons policy and strategy, including research related to deterrence, the NPT and nonproliferation, modernization, regional nuclear studies, and other related fields. 

The Conference Series provides presenters with a visible platform for sharing their thinking on a wide range of nuclear issues. PONI conferences provide excellent opportunities for rising professionals to present and receive feedback on their research from a diverse group of experts and stakeholders in the nuclear community. Our conferences are also a great way to build connections with academics, national lab representatives, military officers, policymakers, and industry representatives from across the nuclear enterprise.   

This event is made possible through the generous support of the Defense Threat Reduction Agency, the National Nuclear Security Administration, and U.S. national nuclear laboratories.
