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.
Due to the Corona pandemic and worldwide imposed meeting and travel restrictions, changes to the format of the sixth conference in the CTBT: Science and Technology series have become inevitable.
SnT2021 is going mostly virtual. The new format aims to bring together even more scientists, technologists, academics, students and representatives of the CTBTO’s policy making organs in this new interactive platform and stimulate rich virtual discussions. In addition, representatives from the fields of research and development, science diplomacy, science advisory, media and advocacy groups are cordially invited to register and follow the conference.
The 25th anniversary of the opening for signature of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT) presents an opportunity to review the scientific and technological advancements made and to project what developments can be expected in the next 25 years.
The opening day of the SnT2021, on 28 June, will be hosted at the historic Hofburg Palace in Vienna, Austria, with online participation and limited attendance in place. The other days of the conference, 29 June to 2 July, will be virtual, with highlight talks and invited speakers, oral presentations, panels, e-posters, side events, extensive opportunities for discussions in virtual break-out rooms and chats, and more.
We are looking forward to your joining us!
