Nuclear Science Week 2016 hosting proposals due by March 1

The National Steering Committee for Nuclear Science Week (NSW) issued a request for proposal online for any municipality that wants to host this year's NSW, traditionally held the third week of October, specifically Oct. 17-21 this year.

The committee also released the impact report on the 2015 NSW.

The request for proposal indicates that the city or other location chosen must be capable of raising approximately $20,000 to $25,000 to cover speakers’ costs, hospitality and travel expenses, catering and other items. The organization also recommends that there be representation at the event from nuclear engineering or science organizations, such as the American Nuclear Society, or at least representation from academic institutions with nuclear science degree programs.

The request also said hosting committees will be tasked with finding sponsors for various aspects of the event.

Proposals should be submitted to James Walther, chairman of the NSW National Steering Committee, by Tuesday, March 1.

In 2015, the event took place at the Knoxville Convention Center in Tennessee over a three-day period. The impact report said the event featured tours at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory and several panel discussions.
