Carnegie International Nuclear Policy Conference 2011

The biennial Carnegie international conference on things nonproliferation convenes today at the Reagan Building here in Washington DC and anyone who’s anyone in the field converge on this auspicious confab.

This year, topics will include the ongoing nuclear mess at Fukushima, the CTBT, safeguards and the nuclear renaissance, and the Nuclear Suppliers Group.

Watch this space for some summarizing and commentary from your truly.  Deets below.

Incidentally, Carnegie has eliminated the “nonproliferation” bit from the traditional title of the Conference and renamed it “nuclear policy conference”.  Wonder what that means?
