UK PONI is now accepting proposals from members for presentations at the 2019 Annual Conference.
The UK PONI Annual Conference has established itself as the premier UK forum for developing new 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 2019 Annual Conference, which will take place on 13 June at the Royal United Services Institute for Defence and Security Studies in London. The event will consist of panel presentations, keynote speeches, breakout sessions, and an evening dinner reception. This conference will focus on, but will not be limited to, the topics listed in the research agenda overleaf. For information and presentations from the 2018 Annual Conference please click here.

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; publish a short paper; and have the chance to present at US Strategic Command at Omaha as part of the US PONI Conference Series.
