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.
Radiation Protection & Shielding
The Radiation Protection and Shielding Division is developing and promoting radiation protection and shielding aspects of nuclear science and technology — including interaction of nuclear radiation with materials and biological systems, instruments and techniques for the measurement of nuclear radiation fields, and radiation shield design and evaluation.

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.

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.
