ANS is committed to advancing, fostering, and promoting the development and application of nuclear sciences and technologies to benefit society.
Explore the many uses for nuclear science and its impact on energy, the environment, healthcare, food, and more.
The division's objectives are to promote the advancement of knowledge and understanding of the fundamental physical phenomena characterizing nuclear reactors and other nuclear systems. The division encourages research and disseminates information through meetings and publications. Areas of technical interest include nuclear data, particle interactions and transport, reactor and nuclear systems analysis, methods, design, validation and operating experience and standards. The Wigner Award heads the awards program.

ANS 2021 Annual Meeting going virtual
The ANS 2021 Annual Meeting will be conducted virtually after word was received by ANS that the Rhode Island Convention Center, in Providence. R.I., would no longer be available as scheduled for a face-to-face meeting.
As a result, the Annual Meeting, from June 14-16, 2021, will be transformed into an online conference, allowing ANS to deliver quality content and technical exchange while ensuring health and safety.
Similarly, ANS's Annual and Winter Meetings in 2020 were held as virtual events because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Registration is now open for the ANS 2021 Annual Meeting. Please email ANS with questions.
