The National Academy of Sciences' Committee on International Security and Arms Control will host a public symposium to discuss how the United States should manage its nuclear arsenal in the post-Cold War world.
Three keynote speakers will offer their perspectives on U.S. nuclear weapons policy: William J. Perry, former secretary of defense, Rep. David Hobson (R-Ohio), and Linton Brooks, undersecretary of energy for nuclear security, U.S. Department of Energy. Panel discussions will focus on topics such as the need for earth-penetrating nuclear weapons, the role of nuclear weapons in U.S. foreign policy, and the Stockpile Stewardship Program, a DOE effort to safely maintain the nation's nuclear arsenal and to use simulated tests to measure its reliability.
Wednesday, Aug. 11, 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. EDT, in the auditorium of the National Academies building, 2100 C St., N.W., Washington, D.C. This event will NOT be webcast. An agenda is available online at http://www7.nationalacademies.org/cisac/index.html.
