The annual Waste Management (WM) Conference, presented by WM Symposia (WMS), is widely regarded as the premier international conference for the management of radioactive material and related topics. WMS is a non-profit organization dedicated to education and opportunity in waste management. It was founded to provide a forum for discussing and seeking cost-effective and environmentally responsible solutions to the safe management and disposition of radioactive waste and radioactive materials.

The annual WM2010 conference attracted over 2,000 registrants from throughout the world and provided significant opportunities for networking, professional growth and education – as well as business opportunities. This conference was attended by decision makers, project managers, and technical and procurement specialists representing the government and private organizations undertaking the global tasks of radioactive material management, decommissioning and site remediation.

WM2011, the conference’s 37th year, is expected to attract representatives from over 35 countries, presenting more than 400 papers in over 80 technical sessions.  WM2011 will be held February 27 – March 3, 2011 at the Phoenix Convention Center’s West Building.
