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 was organized to promote the advancement of knowledge of the use of particle accelerator technologies for nuclear and other applications. It focuses on production of neutrons and other particles, utilization of these particles for scientific or industrial purposes, such as the production or destruction of radionuclides significant to energy, medicine, defense or other endeavors, as well as imaging and diagnostics.

Venue, date changed for ANS’s Annual Conference
The American Nuclear Society’s 2024 Annual Conference is moving the venue in part to accommodate a higher-than-expected number of submissions for the Annual Conference and embedded topical meetings—the most received for an annual meeting in over a decade! The conference venue was changed to Mandalay Bay at the beginning of the Las Vegas strip. However, the change in accommodation comes with a change in dates: The meeting has been moved one week later than originally scheduled, to June 16–19.

The inventory of spent fuel located at independent spent fuel storage installations across the US continues to increase. An understanding of the technical aspects of spent fuel storage is important as the U.S. seeks to manage this inventory. Additionally, the eventual transport of spent fuel to either a consolidated interim storage facility or a permanent disposal facility must also be well understood. This session covers all aspects of spent fuel storage and transportation, including routing of transportation casks and the design and manufacture of storage and/or transportation casks.
