Call for Workshop Managers th

The 7 International Youth Nuclear Congress (IYNC2012 will be organized from August 5-11 in Charlotte (United States). The Organizing Committee is looking for Workshop Managers. The workshops will, together with the technical tracks, the poster session, a professional development th workshop and plenary sessions, form the 7 edition of this unique international conference for young professionals.

Function Description Each workshop will be managed by an international or a US Workshop Manager. A Workshop Manager should • • •

Summarize the title, theme, concept, output, number of participants, speakers and length of the workshop in the template document.
