Special invitation to present your favorite NUCLEAR OBJECT

Speakers in the conference have been asked to bring to their computer screen a favorite nuclear object. It could be a souvenir, a photo, a book, a pair of shoes from a special field trip, a personal radiation detector, cladding from a spent fuel rod – anything. For each conference day there is scheduled ca 30 minutes to a “show and tell” of nuclear objects, answering the questions listed below. Each round will take place before the conference panel starts and will include the speakers and chair of the day.

  • What is it?
  • When did it come to you?
  • Where do you store it?
  • Who do you show it to?

As a non-presenting participant, you are hereby invited to also present a nuclear object. If you want to do so, please check the program and write a notification to Andrei Stsiapanau with your preferred time slot (andrei.stsiapanau@liu.se).

The conference program as well as the conference poster were designed by Gailė Pranckūnaitė and Mislav Žugaj.

We look very much forward to seeing you online in just two weeks from now!

With warm wishes from the Atomic Heritage team,
Anna Storm, Egle Rindzeviciute, Tatiana Kasperski, Florence Fröhlig and Andrei Stsiapanau
