Greetings,

I am seeking participants for a panel as part of the 2018 ASEEES annual convention to take place Dec. 6 - 9 in Boston. The panel centers on the topic of nuclear production (in relation to both weaponry and nuclear energy) and its radioactive by-products. There are two presenters so far, and I am seeking a third presenter, as well as a chair and discussant. If I receive enough responses, I might form a second panel.
