The program will feature an opening plenary with invited speakers, 4 working groups, and a closing summary plenary. The working groups for the 2019 workshop are:

  • WG-1: International Safeguards
  • WG-2: Nuclear Security
  • WG-3: Nonproliferation and Arms Control
  • WG-4: Nuclear Knowledge Retention

Working groups 1, 2, and 3 will have concurrent sessions running throughout the workshop and the chairs of these working groups will provide a summary of the outcomes during the closing plenary.

  • Abstracts should be 1-4 pages in length and should address the one of the topics addressed by the working groups.
  • Identify preferred working group and topic using the abstract submission form.
  • The deadline for submission is 31 August 2019

The working group sessions are being designed to provide an interactive exchange among all the participants. Designated facilitators will moderate the discussion using a combination of invited speakers to set the stage for the discussion and an integration of the submitted abstracts. As such, the authors of accepted abstracts should not expect to make a presentation on their topic, rather they should be prepared to provide an oral description of their contribution when called upon by the facilitator as part of the integrated discussion.
