Event Description

This conference seeks to build upon previous ANS topical conferences on nuclear fuel cycle technology, facility safeguards, and nonproliferation technology development.

The goal is to stimulate conversation among nuclear science researchers, facilities operators, and policy makers, with an agenda that includes sessions on current trends in nuclear material and fuel cycle technology developments as they relate to safeguards, treaty verification, and broader nonproliferation policy. These sessions, combined with six panel discussions and three workshops, will provide a venue for discussions on relevant policy and technical needs in nonproliferation.
