Event description


Dear Sir/Madam,

I am writing to you from the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization to share information about an upcoming conference which you, your students and your colleagues might be interested in. The CTBT: Science and Technology 2017 Conference (SnT 2017) will take place from 26 to 30 June 2017 at the Hofburg Palace in Vienna, Austria. It will be the sixth in a series of multidisciplinary conferences designed to further enhance the strong relationship between the scientific and technological community and the CTBTO.

The conference series provides a forum for scientists from around the world to exchange knowledge and share advances in monitoring and verification technologies of relevance to the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT). Such interaction helps ensure that the Treaty’s global verification regime remains at the forefront of scientific and technical innovation.

The 1996 Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT) bans all nuclear explosions by everyone, everywhere: on the Earth's surface, in the atmosphere, underwater and underground. The CTBTO is tasked with establishing a verification regime which includes a global network of over 300 monitoring stations.

I would be grateful if you could share information about the Conference and encourage students and colleagues to submit abstracts and attend. Please find attached a short electronic flyer. We would also be happy to provide you with printed posters and flyers for distribution.

For more information, including on financial assistance, submission deadlines and the themes of the Conference, please see

Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions that are not covered on the website.

We look forward to hearing from you and to hopefully welcoming you in Vienna next June.
