Opportunities for Presenters
We are accepting proposals for presentations at the 2021 Annual Conference, which this year will be held online, 8-10 June. The event will consist of a series of short presentations from emerging experts in the field as well as keynote speeches, and a variety of networking opportunities. This conference will focus on the research topics listed in the call for proposals.

Selected presenters will have the opportunity to: 1) work with members of the UK PONI team to refine their ideas and research; 2) meet with external mentors and receive feedback prior to the conference; 3) present their work to a broad audience of nuclear experts; and 4) publish a short paper in RUSI’s annual edited volume, The UK PONI Papers. The external mentors who have kindly agreed to review selected presentations are experienced professionals in the nuclear field. The best presentations from the conference will be put forward to the following year’s US PONI Capstone Conference, to be held at the US Strategic Command in Omaha, Nebraska.
Application Guidelines and Selection Process
UK PONI encourages presentation proposals from graduate students, emerging technical specialists, and other early career professionals, including those with military experience. UK PONI is committed to creating a diverse and inclusive environment, and we thus welcome applications from women, persons with disabilities, and underrepresented minorities.
The final choice will be made by a selection panel which consists of the UK PONI team and the UK PONI Board of Advisers, using an anonymised process. At the discretion of the selection panel, additional selected presentations may also be included in the Annual Conference.
