New polls show substantial support for nuclear energy
Sixty percent of respondents in a recent national survey favored the use of nuclear energy, with only 25 percent opposing its use. While the latest Bisconti Research poll focuses on nuclear power and electricity generation, its findings on public interest in climate change and using a spectrum of sources to meet energy needs are consistent with a recent Pew Research Center poll on a broad set of energy policy and climate change topics. The approaches the two online surveys took to measuring public opinion on nuclear energy yielded different numbers but found some common ground.

Our meeting vision is to ensure attendees leave with renewed interest in their field of expertise by exposing them to new tools that make them more effective, showing them the value of membership in the RPSD community, and providing an enjoyable destination for the meeting. We will emphasize the technical intersection between tool developers and user applications, taking advantage of the synergy between the two diverse groups of attendees. Through the planned technical sessions, workshops, plenary talks, and social events, we hope to provide an environment that is ideal for the two communities to engage in productive technical discussions, establish collaborations, and build community.
Submit a Summary
We are proud to follow in the long tradition of joint RPSD-ICRS meetings and hope to achieve the success of the last meeting in Paris (2016). Our meeting vision is to ensure attendees leave with renewed interest in their field of expertise by exposing them to new tools that make them more effective, showing them the value of membership in the RPSD and ICRS communities, and providing an enjoyable destination for the meeting. We hope to provide an environment for tool developers, code users, theoreticians, and experimentalists to engage in productive discussions, establish collaborations, and build community in the foreground of scientific advancements and challenges in radiation protection and shielding.
