Nuclear Science Week: the ANS local and student sections events
Nuclear Science Week (NSW) is a celebration designed to focus local, regional, national, and international interest on all aspects of nuclear science. National events marking the 11th annual NSW took place October 19–23 in Washington, D.C. This year’s theme was “Think Clean. Think Solutions. Think Nuclear.”
Several ANS local and student sections from around the world organized their own events to celebrate NSW, as follows:

The need for extended dry and wet storage and potential transportation of commercial spent nuclear fuel (SNF) is of heightened interest to various stakeholders. In this paper session, speakers will present recent studies and activities associated with the safe storage and transportation (e.g., advances in, demonstrations of, studies of, etc. cask/overpack system designs or site infrastructure improvements) of commercial SNF.
