The 2018 Pacific Basin Nuclear Conference (PBNC 2018) was hosted by the American Nuclear Society (ANS) and was jointly organized by Idaho National Laboratory and Canadian Nuclear Laboratories. The theme of this year's conference was Advancing and Sustaining Nuclear Energy. This is the first time PBNC has been held in the United States since 2004. This meeting serves as an opportunity for leaders from countries throughout the Pacific Rim and beyond to engage on the most pressing issues that face the global nuclear industry today.
Approximately 150 papers were presented covering the following topics: probabilistic risk assessment, safety, and control systems, nuclear fuels and fluid dynamics, advanced chemistry and processing options, recent advances in nuclear security, advances in nuclear materials safety, enabling long term operations, advances in radionuclide analysis in support of decontamination and decommissioning, fuel core and related topics, technologies for power operations, severe accident management, and economics.
