The World Institute for Nuclear Security (WINS) organised an International Best Practices Workshop to review and discuss existing and upcoming advanced security technologies, in particular autonomous and remotely operated systems, and to explore challenges and opportunities associated with their implementation.
The purpose of this workshop was to discuss technological changes, in particular autonomous and remotely operated systems and components in the field of nuclear security, that might take place in the coming years and explore how nuclear organisations and other nuclear security stakeholders can strategically anticipate and benefit from them. The workshop built on the key findings of previous WINS activities and reviewed in particular the main topics detailed in the WINS Special Report on Evolving Security Threats and Advanced Security Technologies published in 2018.
The key objectives of the workshop were to discuss and answer such questions as:
This workshop aimed to bring together experts and leading thinkers in advanced security. More than 50 delegates were invited to this prestigious event and the workshop benefited from the exchange of best practice in different sectors. WINS also plans to publish the findings and additional proposals for further research following the workshop. Attendees were expected to meet their own costs for travel and accommodation. Workshop costs were met by WINS. No registration fee was required. In addition to invited speakers, we welcomed applications from the following:
