The PONI Conference Series is unique in its focus on rising experts and young professionals in the nuclear field. The Conference Series draws emerging thought leaders from across the nuclear enterprise and provides them with a visible platform for sharing their thinking on a 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 great opportunities to build connections with academics, national lab representatives, military officials, policymakers, and industry representatives 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.
