    Three Weeks Left to Submit Abstracts

    There are just under three weeks left to submit abstracts for WiN 2014, with the abstract form available here

    The Conference represents the premier international networking and technical event for our organisation, which is now active in 105 countries and has around 25,000 men and women interspersed between the various Global and National Chapters. Participants are already confirmed for the Conference from over 30 countries, including China, USA, South Africa, UK, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, UAE and the IAEA and the list is growing daily.
    The keynote speakers opening the conference include Dr Ma Lu, Senior Vice President of SNPTC (China) and Dr Erica Smyth, Chair of Toro Energy Ltd and a Non-Executive Director of ANSTO and over seventy abstracts have been submitted to date by our international colleagues.
    This is not a reactor-centric conference, instead looking to capture the full cross-section of our members’ work and so presents a unique chance to network with an amazing array of international nuclear and WiN colleagues in Australia. We’d love for you to attend and bring your work and experience to the fore. The Conference will also include cocktail receptions, a gala dinner and include optional visits to the Australian Synchrotron, Ranger Uranium Mine, Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation, a sydney harbour cruise and visit to Wildlife Sydney Zoo for those who wish to round out their calendar.
    We can now accept payments for conference registration via credit card/Paypal, although these will incur a 3% handling fee.
    (Note: men and women are equally encouraged and welcomed to attend)
