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 webinar to focus on low-dose radiation risk
Join ANS on Thursday, January 21, at noon (ET) for a Q&A with an expert panel as they discuss how to communicate about the risk of low-dose radiation. “Talking About Low-dose Radiation Risk” is a free members-only event that serves as a follow-up to the “Risky Business” President’s Session that took place during the ANS Virtual Winter Meeting last November. The session will take a deeper dive into the many questions generated from the thought-provoking discussion.

New this year, a high-level Executive Track has been added to provide busy nuclear professionals a broader look at developments in nuclear science and technology and their impact on policy and markets. Proposals that address the latest advances in fusion, modeling and simulation, and waste are encouraged. Also of interest are presentations on policy, communications, K-12 outreach, diversity and inclusion, leadership and career development, strategic planning, and workforce issues. Inclusion of a summary is optional for Executive Track submittals. In lieu of a summary, you may upload a written proposal that provides a clear statement of the subject matter and an outline of your proposed presentation. Also provide relevant information about your own background. Proposals should be submitted in the Executive Track in the EPSR.
