Call for Presentations, CSIS PONI Conference Series

The Project on Nuclear Issues (PONI) at the Center for Strategic and International Studies is seeking new voices to present their research at the PONI Conference Series.

We accept undergraduate, masters, PhD, and post-doc students and fellows. 

The conferences offer terrific opportunities both for attendees and presenters to network across the nuclear community, engage different technical and operational communities across our nuclear enterprise, participate in interactive activities and simulations designed to deepen their understanding on nuclear issues, and explore locations and facilities generally not accessible to students otherwise.

The PONI staff works with each and every presenter to help them hone their presentation into a sharp and focused 10 minute discussion with substantive feedback throughout the process.  The best presenters get the opportunity to attend and present our annual Capstone Conference at US Strategic Command.

PONI covers all travel and related expenses for presenters as well. While we review and accept applications on a rolling basis we are still actively seeking a few more presenters for our Fall Conference at King’s Bay.

For more information please see: or reach out to Simone Williams at
