Important scientific developments will change the paradigm for nuclear materials processing and signature discovery, influencing the fields of nuclear forensics, nonproliferation, signature discovery and the assessment of nuclear security vulnerabilities.

Plutonium-producing B-Reactor at Hanford in 1944.

This INMM Workshop will focus on emerging technologies, techniques and methods for nuclear materials science processing and its applications to nonproliferation and nuclear forensics. A special session, "Introduction to Plutonium," and poster session are planned. Students are encouraged to participate.



Abstracts have now closed. If you submitted an abstract for one of the following topics, you will be contacted by one of the organizers.

  • Nuclear Material Processing and Nonproliferation
  • Signature Science
  • Nuclear Forensics
  • Nuclear Materials Science and Its Relevancy to Treaties and Policies
  • Developing the Next Generation Expert

If submitting a poster abstract, please note that the poster size is 36" wide by 48" high.

All papers and posters will be considered for a companion special issue of the Journal of Nuclear Materials Management (JNMM), if you express interest.
