8:45-9:45 amPlenary I - Dark Matter Search and Liquid Xenon Detector Development
0495* Imaging Liquid Xenon Detectors for the Search of Dark Matter Weakly Interacting Massive Particles - Elena Aprile (Columbia University, USA)

The nature of the dark matter, a dominant component of the Universe, remains one of the most fundamental open question in physics today despite decades of experimental efforts. A leading class of dark matter candidates are Weakly Interacting Massive Particles (WIMPs) and direct detection experiments in deep underground laboratories around the world are actively searching for WIMPs with a variety of detectors and target materials. Liquid xenon detectors such as those developed by the XENON collaboration have shown the best detection capability for WIMPs with a mass larger than 10 GeV/c2 all the way to 100 TeV/c2 scale, which is way beyond the reach of the Large Hadron Collider. The current XENON1T experiment, the first to use several thousands of kilograms of Xe in the largest LXe dark matter detector realized to-date, is leading the field with the best detection sensitivity in the region predicted by popular theory models. I will discuss the status of the field and of the XENON1T experiment.
Rackham Auditorium David Wehe
9:45-10:45 amPlenary II - Modernizing the IAEA verification instrumentation
0497* Modernizing the IAEA verification instrumentation: Lessons from experience and vision to the future - Alain LeBrun (IAEA, France)

To draw safeguards conclusions, the IAEA continues to heavily rely on verification data acquired in the field by inspectors and data acquired continuously at facilities through unattended systems. Safeguards equipment and associated data collection software have evolved considerably over the last decade, during which new platforms and detectors have been introduced. A long list of new systems spans the main operating areas of safeguards instrumentation including optical surveillance, unattended monitoring, non-destructive assay, remote data transmission and containment. In addition to acquisition of new verification capabilities such as tomography, radiation imaging or fast neutron assay, modernization of the IAEA verification tools includes ongoing development of software packages able to automatically review and evaluate large sets of verification data including surveillance and radiation monitoring data. In partnership with Member State Support Programmes, research institutions and contractors, experts from the Division of Technical and Scientific services are managing multiple projects to continue modernizing the arsenal of technologies available for safeguards verification. Further, the IAEA is now implementing innovative approaches including technology crowd sourcing to identify and evaluate emerging technologies in use in other domains of research or industry that can contribute to improving safeguards verification effectiveness and efficiency. Through multiple examples the talk will address lessons learned from completed projects, highlight current development undertakings and describe the IAEA’s vision to future verification technologies.

10:45-11:00 amCoffee Break
11:00-12:00 pmPlenary III - FRIB: The Path to Scientific Discovery
0494* FRIB: The Path to Scientific Discovery - Witold Nazarewicz (Michigan State University, USA)

The Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB) at MSU will be a world-leading laboratory for the study of nuclear structure, reactions, and astrophysics. FRIB will be essential for gaining access to key regions of the nuclear chart, where the measured nuclear properties will challenge established concepts. Nuclear theory will play a critical role in providing the intellectual framework for the science at FRIB. The long-term vision is to arrive at a comprehensive and unified description of nuclei and their reactions, grounded in the interactions between the constituent nucleons. In this talk, advances in rare isotope research will be reviewed in the context of the overarching scientific questions.
