The theme for the NPIC&HMIT 2010 meeting was, "Nuclear Power I&C-HMIT: A Sure Bet for a Reliable and Green Energy Future." This reflects the critical role that I&C and HMI technologies play in the safe and reliable operation of nuclear power plants providing a dependable source of electricity around the world. In addition it points out the global role of nuclear power in reducing greenhouse gases from the generation of electricity, leading to a "green" environment for ourselves and future generations.
