To celebrate the achievements and illustrious lifetime of the NCNR.
The NIST Bureau of Standards Reactor is celebrating its 50th anniversary of going critical on December 7, 2017. It has had a long and distinguished history of providing neutrons to the scientific community and has established itself as a leader in the global enterprise of neutron science. The NCNR is now poised for continuing the legacy long into the future. This symposium is to recognize the accomplishments of those who worked closely with the facility as well as celebrating the potential science that will be emerging from the facility in the future. The symposium will last from the morning of December 7th and continue into the afternoon on the 8th. There will be a reception dinner the evening of the 7th at the Gaithersburg Marriott--Washingtonian Center.
