Description
The Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) is organizing the  School in collaboration with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the Ministry of  Foreign Affairs of Italy and the Partnership for Nuclear Security. The School is to be held at  ICTP in Trieste, from 28 April to 9 May 2014. 
The two-week School is addressed to professionals from developing countries, ideally  with 1-3 years of experience, working at a relevant institution in their home country with  responsibility covering some aspects of nuclear security. Candidates should have a specific  career interest in the knowledge of nuclear security, although their academic background  may vary. Candidates with scientific or technical discipline of relevance to nuclear security,  such as nuclear physics, nuclear engineering or political science, and/or in related fields,  are specifically encouraged to apply. 

Curriculum Topics: 
• International legal framework supporting nuclear security; 
• Identification of, and remedies to, threats against nuclear security; 
• Instruments and methods for physical protection at associated facilities; 
• Illicit trafficking in nuclear and other radioactive material, including radiation 
detection instruments and detection strategies; 
• Transport security for nuclear and other radioactive material; 
• Nuclear and radiological forensics, and crime scene management; 
• Nuclear security culture, cyber security and security at major public events; 
• Measures for systematic nuclear security human resource development at the 
national level; 
• Practical exercises designed to incorporate this knowledge into Member State(s) 
planning and procedures to protect against threats to nuclear security. 

Prerequisites: Successful completion of the IAEA eLearning programme: Use of  Radiation Detection Equipment (includes a session on basics of radiation and radiation protection)
