Registration Open for 2019 Waste Management Conference

Registration is now open for the 2019 Waste Management (WM) conference, which will be held at the Convention Center in Phoenix, Arizona from March 3-7, 2019.


The 2019 WM conference theme is “Encouraging Young Men & Women to Achieve Their Goals in Radwaste Management.”  The conference focus is promoting the next generation of radwaste management professionals, so young professionals are strongly encouraged to get involved.  The 2019 WM conference plans to have several special programs to encourage and support their participation.

The Low-Level Radioactive Waste Forum (LLW Forum) typically organizes a panel for the WM conference titled, Hot Topics and Emerging Issues in U.S. Commercial Low-Level Radioactive Waste Management.  The LLW Forum-organized panel focuses on emerging issues in U.S. commercial low-level radioactive waste management from the perspective of active members of the LLW Forum.  During the panel, state, compact, federal and industry officials share their views on a variety of timely and significant topics related to low-level radioactive waste management, disposal and related issues.


The annual WM conference, presented by WM Symposia (WMS), is an international symposium concerning the safe and secure management of radioactive wastes arising from nuclear operations, facility decommissioning and environmental remediation, as well as storage, transportation and disposal and associated activates.  WMS was founded to provide a forum for discussing and seeking cost-effective and environmentally responsible solutions for the safe management and disposition of radioactive waste and radioactive materials.

The WM 2019 conference marks the 45th annual Waste Management Symposium.  The conference provides an opportunity for stakeholders to connect with the worldwide nuclear community in a forum for discussing and seeking safe and cost-effective solutions to managing and dispositioning radioactive waste and decommissioning nuclear facilities.  The WM 2019 conference will feature more than 500 papers and over 40 panel discussions in 130 plus technical sessions complemented by the industry’s largest annual exhibition of nearly 200 companies.  Registration will open in late August 2018.
