Explore the many uses for nuclear science and its impact on energy, the environment, healthcare, food, and more.
Nuclear Criticality Safety
NCSD provides communication among nuclear criticality safety professionals through the development of standards, the evolution of training methods and materials, the presentation of technical data and procedures, and the creation of specialty publications. In these ways, the division furthers the exchange of technical information on nuclear criticality safety with the ultimate goal of promoting the safe handling of fissionable materials outside reactors.

Finland in Front: The World’s Likely First Spent Fuel Repository Moves Toward Licensing
The year 2024 is shaping up to be a historic one for Posiva, the waste management organization owned by Finland’s two nuclear power plant utilities, Fortum and Teollisuuden Voima. The company is looking to receive regulatory approval of its operating license for the Onkalo deep geological repository for high-level radioactive waste by the end of the year.
Thanks to a great paper submission turnout and our two embedded topical meetings, the 2024 ANS Annual Conference is expanding and moving to a larger venue – Mandalay Bay.
The venue change will allow more space for our technical sessions and great networking opportunities that bring together the nuclear community like no other meeting. To accommodate the change, we’re moving the conference to June 16-19, which is one week later than the original dates.
The two topical meetings, Advanced Reactor Safety (ARS) and International Congress on Advances in Nuclear Power Plants (ICAPP), will also take place June 16-19.
This year’s ANS Annual Conference promises to be an experience like no other. You can bet on it.
Registration and hotel reservations will open soon.
