This week, NNSA brought together researchers from various academic programs to report on their accomplishments over the past year and promote interaction in areas of physical science relevant to stockpile stewardship.
Sponsored by NNSA's Office of Research, Development, Test, and Evaluation, the symposium is geared toward NNSA-supported researchers with grants or cooperative agreements as part of the Stewardship Science Academic Alliances (SSAA) Program, the High Energy Density Laboratory Plasmas (HEDLP) Program, the National Laser Users' Facility (NLUF) Program and the Predictive Science Academic Alliance Program (PSAAP).
One of the goals of the symposium is to highlight accomplishments of the academic programs and encourage student and postdoctoral researcher involvement and interaction with the scientific community.
Presentations on topics of general interest were given by national lab participants. All presentations and discussions were unclassified. In addition, students and post-docs highlighted their work during a poster reception.
