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.
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.

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:
Technical Session|Panel|Sponsored by YMG
Tuesday, June 9, 2020|11:00AM–1:10PM (12:00–2:10PM EDT)
Milos Atz (ANL)
Alisha A. Kasam-Griffith (ANL)
Timothy M. Crook (MCR)
Eileen Cullen (American Nuclear Society)
Experts across many disciplines face challenges in communicating with the public about issues of safety and risk. Particularly in the arena of nuclear technologies, technical complexity and widespread misinformation can increase the barriers to effective communication. In this panel session, nuclear professionals will discuss their strategies for facilitating clear, informative, and honest conversations with non-experts about safety and risk in nuclear, and about the positive role of nuclear technologies in our communities.
