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.

Nuclear in K-12 education: Overview of ANS toolkit and reflections from educators
A free webinar today from 3:00 p.m.-4:30 p.m. (EDT) will look at the resources that the American Nuclear Society has developed with Discovery Education and the Department of Energy’s Office of Nuclear Energy to help K-12 educators teach nuclear science and technology.
The webinar will begin with an overview of the resources, followed by reflections and commentary from three educators of various grade levels on their experiences teaching nuclear science and their thoughts about ANS’s instructional materials. The webinar will conclude with a Q&A session with the panelists.
Registration is required for this Nuclear Science Week event.
American Nuclear Society meetings and conferences are the best way to keep current with the ever changing fields of nuclear science and technology.
In addition to two national meetings per year, ANS sponsors many topical meetings which concentrate on a particular technical area. Many of these meetings are planned many years in advance and are listed here. To have a meeting listed here, it must be approved by the National Program Committee of the American Nuclear Society for inclusion on the ANS Calendar.
COVID-19 Note: ANS is continuing to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on meetings. Please check this page often for meeting status updates.
For more than 65 years, ANS has provided a forum for advancing the state of applied nuclear science and technology. We remain committed to serving the needs of the nuclear professional community during these unprecedented times. In the coming weeks, we will be introducing a new set of digital and video tools that will enable the robust technical exchange of an ANS meeting—papers, presentations, posters, and plenaries, etc.—while ensuring the health and safety of everyone involved during the COVID-19 pandemic.
