I’m pleased to announce we are well under way in the planning for the WM Symposia’s WM2015 Conference, 

“Achieving Results through Technology and Innovation on a Global Scale”

to be held March 15 - 19, 2015 at the Phoenix Convention Center, Phoenix, AZ. 

As a Non-Profit Organization, WM Symposia’s mission is to provide the foundation of global nuclear waste management exemplified through education and information dissemination.  WM2015 looks to be another exceptional technical conference on the safe management and disposition of radioactive waste and radioactive materials and we’d like to invite you to participate.
