The Future of Advanced Nuclear Technologies
Preconference Tutorials

To help overcome differences in terminology used by researchers in various fields, a number of webcast and podcast tutorials focusing on various aspects of advanced nuclear technologies will be released prior to the conference. Conference attendees will be notified when a new tutorial is released through the weekly conference enewsletters. Attendees are asked to listen to all tutorials prior to the November conference.

Webcast tutorials consist of a 30-45 minute slide presentation with narrative.  Podcast tutorials are 20-30 minute "Science Friday" type interviews between Joe Palca, NPR science correspondent, and selected experts.
