The Nonproliferation and Arms Control Technical Division of the Institute of Nuclear Materials Management (INMM) will be holding the fifth in a series of workshops on reducing the risk from Radioactive and Nuclear Materials at Texas A&M University.
Date: Tuesday, February 23, 2010
Location: Texas A&M University
A large number of approaches to proliferation assessment have been developed or are currently under development. These tools are used by a number of different types of users for a range of purposes. The diffuse nature of the field may diminish the effectiveness of these tools, or result in inconsistent application or misuse. The workshop will provide a venue for assessment and methodology developers to interact with users and government officials. Developers will discuss the status of the field and current research and users will discuss current and anticipated needs to which assessment and methodology approaches could contribute. From this, a consensus research agenda will be developed

This Invited Technical Meeting (ITM) is aimed at matching the needs of the nuclear community, reflecting how buyers and sellers can best realize the promise of nuclear energy under the principles of responsible stewardship. It will bring together government and utility experts from States seeking to acquire or expand nuclear power capabilities with panels of experts from governments, the nuclear industry, and organizations including the IAEA. The ITM will aim to find common consensus on shaping the future nuclear enterprise.

The purpose of this workshop is to provide an opportunity for education and open discussion on both the GNEP and GNI concepts as well as seek answers to the following questions: 1) What is the relationship/interface between the GNEP and GNI programs? 2) Can GNI and GNEP be envisioned as a single global initiative? and 3) Are there technology development needs in order to implement a GNEP/GNI joint initiative?

The workshop will examine the ways in which a university's traditional missions of research, education, and service should or should not be applied to address the nuclear security challenges the world now faces. We wish to explore all the assets of the university available to respond to this new challenge, including those in science and engineering research, as well as in policy studies.
