"The Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO) relies on innovation to enhance the capabilities of the Treaty’s verification regime as well as to help move the Treaty closer to universalization and entry into force. As the seventh event in the CTBT: Science and Technology conference series, SnT2019 will bring together around 1000 scientists, technologists, academics, students, CTBTO policy makers, members of the media and representatives of organizations involved in research and development that is relevant to all aspects of Treaty verification.

  • To support the exchange of knowledge and ideas between the CTBTO and the broader scientific community
  • To identify opportunities and possible solutions to continuously improve nuclear test monitoring and verification
  • To identify how scientific developments and cooperation can support national needs and frame policy objectives in support of the CTBT
  • To promote the wider civil and scientific applications of techniques and data used for test ban verification
