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.
Mathematics & Computation
Division members promote the advancement of mathematical and computational methods for solving problems arising in all disciplines encompassed by the Society. They place particular emphasis on numerical techniques for efficient computer applications to aid in the dissemination, integration, and proper use of computer codes, including preparation of computational benchmark and development of standards for computing practices, and to encourage the development on new computer codes and broaden their use.

The Young Member Excellence Award recognizes a young member who has demonstrated overall excellence in a variety of areas.
It is presented to a member of the Young Members Group who is involved with ANS on a national level, actively advances the goals of the ANS Young Members Group, displays outstanding non- technical skills as well as technical or managerial ability, is recognized by others in their field, demonstrates high quality and safety standards, and positively represents nuclear science and technology to the general population.
Emphasis is placed on well-rounded qualifications. Candidates with demonstrated excellence in many of the areas outlined above are preferred to candidates with outstanding qualifications in only one or two areas, who may be eligible for a different ANS award that specifically recognizes those achievements. (Note specifically that this award is different from the Landis Young Member Engineering Achievement Award, which is given to an individual who has made significant technical contributions.)
Emphasis is also placed on continuing excellence. Candidates with a demonstrated history of these qualities over several years are preferred to those with one or two discrete achievements, although these achievements will certainly be considered.
The nominee must be an ANS member and a member of the Young Members Group at the time of nomination. The nominee must further be either under the age of 36 or within five years of graduation at the time of nomination (i.e., meeting the ANS definition of “young member”).
The award consists of an engraved plaque and is presented at the ANS Winter Meeting.
Nominations must include the completed nomination form accompanied by the following supporting documents:
Nomination forms and supporting documents (in Word or Adobe Acrobat) should be emailed to email@example.com with a carbon copy to the Young Members Group at firstname.lastname@example.org.
