The summer workshop-in-residence at UC San Diego, known as the PPNT boot camp, aims to give participants the knowledge and analytic tools to contribute to the debate on future US nuclear policy.

The boot camp features lectures, discussions, debates, and policy simulations. Participants attend talks by distinguished researchers, academics, policy officials, and operational specialists from leading universities, the National Laboratories, international organizations, and government agencies dealing with dealing with nuclear threats, command and control, international safeguards, nonproliferation strategies, and other nuclear issues.

The course is part of long-standing IGCC work on nuclear policy issues.

The 2017 boot camp was supported in part by the Department of Energy National Nuclear Security Administration through the Nuclear Science and Security Consortium headquartered at UC Berkeley.
