Present at WM2019

Interested in presenting at WM2019, March 3-7, 2019 in Phoenix? The WM2019 Call for Abstracts is now available.

Why Present?

The Waste Management Symposium is the largest conference in the world focusing on nuclear waste management policies and practices, as such, you will be able to tell your story to a target attendance comprised of key DOE officials, corporate managers and technical staff involved in the nuclear field. Nowhere else can you obtain such visibility when presenting your work. Once your presentation is accepted, your work will be listed in our on-line program and in our final printed program. After presenting at the conference, your paper will be available in our on-line proceedings and accessible to those interested in your topic. In addition to visibility amongst your peers, the conference offers many networking opportunities where you can discuss your ideas personally with the DOE staff or with the many contractors who are in attendance. 

Topics of interest include research, development and operational experience over the complete spectrum of nuclear waste activities. In addition, there will be featured panel and paper sessions focusing on special topics such as our featured theme, “Encouraging Young Men & Women to Achieve Their Goals in Radwaste Management”, our featured country, Canada, and our featured site, the US DOE Idaho National Laboratory (INL). There will also be special reserved sessions on the Used Fuel, D&D, Procurement and Contracting, Safety, Clean-up of Legacy Sites Worldwide, and NRC/DoD topics.

Types of Presentations

Panel Sessions – Panel sessions consist of invited panelists by session organizers to present on specific topics. Panel Presenters are usually senior members of an agency or a corporation, or widely-recognized national and international subject matter experts.

Oral Session – An oral session involves a peer-reviewed paper and a formal podium presentation supported by clear visual aids.

Poster Presenters – Poster Presenters are required to prepare papers for publication and follow the same guidelines as Oral Presenters. The Poster Presentations are set up in a high traffic area within the Convention Center to increase visibility and attendee interaction.

Non-Paper Posters – Similar to the Poster Presentations however, a paper is not required for this session and nothing will be published.
