Workshop Agenda

India-U.S. Cooperation on Global Security: A Workshop on Technical Aspects of Civilian Nuclear Materials Security

U.S. National Academies of Science and The National Institute of Advanced Studies

October 29-31, 2012 Indian Institute of Science Campus Bangalore, India

GOALS AND OBJECTIVES OF THE WORKSHOP

This Indian-U.S. workshop on the technical aspects of civilian nuclear materials security has been convened jointly by the U.S. National Academy of Sciences (NAS) and the National Institute of Advanced Studies (NIAS) in Bangalore. The goals and objectives of this joint workshop are:

•   To build mutual understanding of how experts in India and the United States approach issues of civilian nuclear materials management and security;

•   To establish contacts among Indian and U.S. scientists and experts on nuclear materials security and to build confidence in cooperation on nuclear security issues, and;

•   To identify concrete, technically-based areas for potential future collaboration between the technical experts of India and the United States, including through the Global Centre for Nuclear Energy Partnership.

Given these goals and objectives, NIAS and NAS encourage open and frank discussion during the workshop, and urge all participants to be actively engaged and seek specific opportunities for further collaborative scientific efforts.

The U.S. government has made safeguarding of weapons-grade plutonium and highly enriched uranium an international policy priority, and convened The 2010 Nuclear Security Summit in Washington, D.C., on April 12 and 13, 2010. Forty six governments sent delegations to the summit and twenty nine of them made national commitments to support nuclear security. During the Summit, India announced its commitment to establish a Global Centre for Nuclear Energy Partnership. The Centre is to be open to international participation through academic0 exchanges, training, and research and development efforts.

India-United States Cooperation on Global Security is the summary of a workshop held by the U.S. National Academy of Sciences (NAS) together with its partner of more than 15 years, the National Institute for Advanced Studies (NIAS) in Bangalore, India. The workshop identified and examined potential areas for substantive scientific and technical cooperation between the two countries on issues related to nuclear material security. Technical experts from India and the United States focused on topics of nuclear material security and promising opportunities for India and the United States to learn from each other and cooperate. This report discusses nuclear materials management issues such as nuclear materials accounting, cyber security, physical security, and nuclear forensics.
