CTBT: Science and Technology 2011

Science and Technology for CTBT

To build and strengthen its relationship with the broader science community in support of the Treaty, the CTBTO invited the community to a scientific conference CTBT: Science and Technology 2011 (S&T2011), which was held from 8 to10 June 2011 at the Hofburg Palace in Vienna, Austria.

This multidisciplinary scientific conference, designed to foster partnerships on many levels, attracted working scientists and technologists, science administrators, scientific representatives to the CTBTO's policy-making organs, and representatives of agencies that fund research and development in areas potentially relevant to the Treaty's verification system.

Conference Goals

The three major goals of the conference were to:

  1. Discuss advances in science and technology relevant to test ban verification.     
  2. Explore scientific applications of the CTBT verification infrastructure.
  3. Encourage partnerships and knowledge exchange between the CTBTO and the broader scientific community.
