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 Nonproliferation Policy
The mission of the Nuclear Nonproliferation Policy Division (NNPD) is to promote the peaceful use of nuclear technology while simultaneously preventing the diversion and misuse of nuclear material and technology through appropriate safeguards and security, and promotion of nuclear nonproliferation policies. To achieve this mission, the objectives of the NNPD are to: Promote policy that discourages the proliferation of nuclear technology and material to inappropriate entities. Provide information to ANS members, the technical community at large, opinion leaders, and decision makers to improve their understanding of nuclear nonproliferation issues. Become a recognized technical resource on nuclear nonproliferation, safeguards, and security issues. Serve as the integration and coordination body for nuclear nonproliferation activities for the ANS. Work cooperatively with other ANS divisions to achieve these objective nonproliferation policies.

Cost drivers of nuclear steam cycle construction
Interest in reducing carbon emissions around the world continues to climb. As a complement to the increasing deployment of variably generating renewables, advanced nuclear is commonly shown in net-zero grid modeling for 2050 because it represents firm electricity production that can flex in output with load demands.1 However, these projections are challenged by the high levelized cost of electricity associated with legacy nuclear construction, which is often more than double that of modern combined-cycle gas turbine (CCGT) plants.
About a dozen years or so ago, there was a formal Guest Program that added certain meals and activities for the guests. As time went on this got more and more expensive to provide, so fewer people began to attend and it just died out. While there were several reasons things didn’t work out then, there is still a desire today for the Spouses and Guests attending the meeting to be able to meet each other and possibly see the sites or do something together.
Steven A. Arndt will become the new ANS president in June at the California meeting. As his wife and “ANS First Lady” I am going to try and offer some information to you all and some options for gathering.
Anaheim Gardenwalk restaurants and stores.
The Anaheim Packing House
This area offers a lot of fun things to do – the most obvious being Disneyland, California Adventure, etc. There are also other options than the amusement parks. Downtown Disney has a selection of retail stores, and restaurants, some of which have live entertainment. The Packing District is an old meat packing building that has been converted into a food hall (which also delivers!) In fact, most of the major attractions are all within a small distance of our hotel. Disneyland is one block away.
Don’t overlook the hotel’s indoor/outdoor pools, spa, fitness center and all the usual things we’ve come to expect from good hotels.
If you are not a walker there is a transportation system called FRAN (area resort transit). It is free and runs from noon to 8PM. You order this service using an app on your phone.
Let ART do all the driving and save the stress of parking!
To plan your ride, Download our APP Rider App Information or ask a hotel representative, or visit the ART Information Center at ARTIC. For travel outside our current routes, ART connects with other transportation providers
ART provides service 7 days a week. Service typically begins one hour before the Disneyland Resort® opens and continues until 30 minutes after close.
