On behalf of the American Nuclear Society and the CONTE 2021 Committee, we thank you for joining us for the 2021 Conference on Nuclear Training and Education!

We are pleased to bring you an exciting, informative, provocative, and educational conference in a virtual format that allows us to bring our content to a wider audience than ever.

The theme of this year's meeting is “Learning Towards the Nuclear Industry of Tomorrow” and is centered on education and training’s role in shaping the future of the nuclear industry. The industry has faced many challenges in recent years including a difficult economic marketplace and overcoming the obstacle to train and educate a highly knowledgeable and skilled workforce in the midst of a global pandemic. Training and education have risen to these challenges while continuing to improve industry performance. Our CONTE 2021 presenters will bring you their ideas, innovations and best practices that have made a difference in the past two years and going forward.

The central component of CONTE is the exchange of ideas, and you will find those opportunities again this year. We have over 70 presenters across three days with five expert panel discussions. While we can’t replace a face-to-face meeting, we think this conference will bridge the gap, keeping you informed of the some of the best practices, innovations, and challenges in the nuclear industry, both in education and training.

This meeting will be unlike any previous CONTE, but it promises to contain the one thing that has always characterized this conference – a willingness to share and to learn from each other.
