Departments of Energy and State, is organizing the 9th Annual U.S. 
Industry Program at the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) 
General Conference, to be held September 18-21, 2016, in Vienna, 
Austria. The IAEA General Conference is the premier global meeting of 
civil nuclear policymakers and typically attracts senior officials and 
industry representatives from all 162 Member States. The U.S. Industry 
Program is part of the Department of Commerce-led Civil Nuclear Trade 
Initiative, a U.S. Government effort to help U.S. civil nuclear 
companies identify and capitalize on commercial civil nuclear 
opportunities around the world. The purpose of the program is to help 
the U.S. nuclear industry promote its services and technologies to an 
international audience, including senior energy policymakers from 
current and emerging markets as well as IAEA staff.
    Representatives of U.S. companies from across the U.S. civil 
nuclear supply chain are eligible to participate. In addition, 
organizations providing related services to the industry, such as 
universities, research institutions, and U.S. civil nuclear trade

U.S. participants gain market insights, make industry contacts,

important civil nuclear topics including regulatory, technology and
