8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

This symposium stands distinctly apart from others because of the attention that Pittsburgh commands as the birthplace of nuclear power and as a hub of energy industries. Moreover, Pittsburgh is uniquely postured by the Three Mile Island accident as a case study of nuclear crisis management under the administration of Governor Dick Thornburgh.

The experience at Three Mile Island was thrust to the forefront again last March by the Fukushima Daiichi disaster. This March will thus mark both the anniversary of the Fukushima Daiichi accident and the 33rd anniversary of the Three Mile Island accident. This alliance of factors positions this symposium to make a distinctive contribution to public awareness of this critical policy issue.

Our program will consist of a series of tightly organized presentations involving prominent experts in nuclear, fossil fuel, and passive energy sources across dimensions of engineering technology, public health, emergency management, insurance, and financing.
