Dear colleagues,

The IAEA Department of Nuclear Sciences and Applications is planning to 
hold the Virtual Side Event, during the 64th Session of the IAEA General 
Conference, to which you are most welcome to attend on "The Future of 
Atoms: Artificial Intelligence for Nuclear Applications" on Wednesday, 
23 September 2020, starting at 14:30.

The side event will showcase the ways in which Artificial 
Intelligence-based approaches in nuclear science have the potential to 
advance cancer staging in nuclear medicine and cancer treatment through 
radiotherapy; accelerate progress in nuclear fusion research; as well as 
help protect the environment, in particular global water resources from 
over exploitation and contamination. It will also seek to envision 
future application of AI in nuclear science and possible collaborative 
and coordinated research that can be conducted under the stewardship of 
the IAEA.

The following invited key speakers would make brief presentations:

Mr Jan Seuntjens, Professor, McGill University, Canada

Mr Clement Bataille Assistant Professor, Ottawa University, Canada

Mr David Humphreys Principal Scientist, General Atomics, USA

Ms Emma Ruttkamp-Bloem Professor, University of Pretoria, South Africa
