Call for Proposals: The 10th UK PONI 2020 Annual Conference
UK PONI is now accepting proposals from members for presentations at the 2020 Annual Conference.
Now celebrating its 10th anniversary, the UK PONI Annual Conference has established itself as the premier UK forum for developing the next generation of nuclear expertise from academia, industry, government, and the military. By bringing together emerging and established experts from across the nuclear field, this conference series promotes an informed and diverse dialogue on the most pertinent nuclear issues of the day.
We are now accepting proposals from UK PONI members for presentations at the 2020 Annual Conference, which will take place on Thursday 11 June at the Royal United Services Institute for Defence and Security Studies in London. The event will consist of a series of short presentations by UK PONI members, keynote speeches, talks from UK PONI alumni from the first ten years of the initiative, and an evening dinner reception. This conference will focus on the topics listed in the research agenda. For the presentations from the 2019 Annual Conference please click here.
UK PONI encourages presentation proposals from graduate students, emerging technical specialists, and early career professionals, including those with military experience. UK PONI is committed to creating a diverse and inclusive environment and thus encourages all interested parties to apply, especially those from underrepresented communities. Selected presenters will have the opportunity to: work with members of the UK PONI team to refine their ideas and research; present their work to a broad audience of nuclear experts; and publish a short paper in RUSI’s annual edited volume, The UK PONI Papers. The best presentations from the conference will be put forward to the following year’s US PONI Capstone Conference, to be held at US Strategic Command in Omaha.
UK PONI is committed to creating a diverse and inclusive community of nuclear scholars and professionals. We welcome presentation proposals from all interested parties, regardless of their race, sex, disability, religion/beliefs or sexual orientation.
Presentation proposals should be strictly no longer than 300 words and should include the following:
- Your name, organisation/university affiliation, and position
- The notional title of your presentation
- A summary of your presentation, which should include an indication of how it links to one or more of the themes identified below
