The 39th Annual CNS/CNA Student Conference will be held in Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada, 2015 May 31 – June 3, at the Hilton Saint John / Saint John Trade & Convention Centre.

The central objective of this conference is to exchange views on how nuclear science and technology can best serve the needs of humanity, now and in the future, and how we can advance nuclear innovation through collaboration between industry, the nuclear laboratories and academia.

Student Papers are being solicited from undergraduate and graduate students on technical developments in all subjects related to nuclear science and technology and their great potential for service to the world community. At the Conference Committee’s discretion, one student author from the accepted Student Paper will be invited to the conference for a topical poster display.
