The Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO) relies on innovation to enhance the capabilities of the Treaty’s verification regime as well as to help move the Treaty closer to universalization and entry into force.
As the fifth event in the CTBT: Science and Technology conference series, SnT2019 will bring together around 1000 scientists, technologists, academics, students, CTBTO policy makers, members of the media and representatives of organizations involved in research and development that is relevant to all aspects of Treaty verification. For more information, download the brochure.
Online registration and abstract submission is accessible through CTNW. No registration fee will be charged. The working language of the conference is English.
Prospective authors are asked to choose the appropriate theme and topic when submitting the abstract (maximum 200 words) of their presentation. Authors can request either an oral or poster presentation. In addition, authors are encouraged to submit a short and very simple description (maximum 280 characters) outlining the abstract’s main contribution to the SnT2019 goals. The selection of abstracts will be based on quality and relevance to the themes and topics of the conference. The Scientific Programme Committee may reassign an abstract to an alternative topic in order to achieve a coherent scientific programme. By submitting an abstract, authors implicitly agree to the publication of their abstract and presentation material by the CTBTO. Accepted abstracts will be made available online and through the mobile CTBTO Event app and compiled into a book of abstracts, and short descriptions may be used on Twitter. A peer reviewed collection of publications will be produced from a selection of all abstracts submitted.
Financial support may be available to a limited number of participants. Such assistance must be requested at the time of registration and no later than 31 January 2019.
Financial support will be considered only for participants who have submitted an abstract that is approved by the Scientific Programme Committee. Participants are strongly encouraged to first seek travel and participation funds from non-CTBTO sources.
