Welcome to the Homepage for the Workshops for Applied Nuclear Data Activities (WANDA)! This series of workshops was initiated for the purpose of discussing nuclear data needs and potential solutions for nuclear energy, nonproliferation, isotope production, and stewardship science. This workshop is modeled after the Nuclear Data Roadmapping Enhancement Workshop (NDREW), held at the UCDC center in 2018, that helped guide the Nuclear Data Interagency Working Group Funding Opportunity Announcement. A technical report of the proceedings from NDREW may be obtained here.
The first of these workshops was held at the Elliott School of International affairs at the George Washington University in January 2019. Since then, there have been a series of workshops with the most recent held virtually in January 2021. This website serves as an archive of the proceedings for past workshops, as well as the whitepapers generated through each year's discussions and recommendations.
WANDA 2023 has already ended, but please stay tuned for registration announcements for WANDA 2024!
