The aim of this international conference, which is being organised for the third time, is to discuss and further expand upon the Prague Security Agenda announced by US President Obama in April 2009 in Prague. The conference will deal primarily with the nuclear disarmament pillar this year, however, the other two pillars (nuclear non-proliferation and nuclear security) will be covered to some extent in this year's conference too.
