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.
This division promotes the development and timely introduction of fusion energy as a sustainable energy source with favorable economic, environmental, and safety attributes. The division cooperates with other organizations on common issues of multidisciplinary fusion science and technology, conducts professional meetings, and disseminates technical information in support of these goals. Members focus on the assessment and resolution of critical developmental issues for practical fusion energy applications.

Inspecting nuclear facilities with unmanned aerial systems
Over the past decade, unmanned aerial systems (UASs), more commonly referred to as drones, have played an increasing role in the day-to-day activities of the energy sector. Applications range from visually inspecting wind turbines, flare stacks, pipelines, and facilities to evaluating vegetation encroachment near power lines. Although the benefits of UASs have been reported in these industries, their use in the nuclear community has only recently been explored. For instance, a drone was sent into a waterbox at a Duke Energy facility to inspect for leaks.1 And at Fukushima Daiichi, a drone was used to conduct a post-accident radiation survey inside Unit 3, and drones are being investigated for use inside the damaged containments.2

The International Conference on Mathematics and Computational Methods Applied to Nuclear Science and Engineering
You may have questions and concerns due to this change. We are working hard now to provide refunds for the differential in registration fee if you already paid your in-person registration fee. We will also refund your registration if you do not wish to attend virtually. We will send out information on how you will present and listen to talks, how poster sessions will be presented, and arrangements for the Workshops. Please bear with us as we navigate these last couple of weeks until the meeting begins.
Thank you,M&C 2021 Organizing Committee
The International Conference on Mathematics and Computational Methods Applied to Nuclear Science and Engineering (M&C 2021) is a part of a series of topical meetings organized by the Mathematics and Computation Division of the American Nuclear Society. M&C conferences, held every two years, represent a series of international forums organized and sponsored to bring together worldwide expertise related to nuclear science or technology including mathematical and computational methods, numerical analysis, computer codes, computer architectures, and benchmarks for computationally solving problems in all disciplines encompassed by the Society.
