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.

Predictions: What lies ahead for nuclear in 2022
As we begin a new year, it is natural not only to look back (see page 24 for top news stories of 2021) but also to look forward. Nuclear News reached out to leaders in the nuclear community to get their predictions on what 2022 has in store, whether broadly or for their specific areas within the community. Although the responses below are wide-ranging and varied, one thing is made clear by all of the respondents: 2022 will see growth and opportunity. The future for nuclear is bright.

The ANS Nuclear Criticality Safety Division Topical bridges the four-year gap between successive International Conferences on Nuclear Criticality (ICNC) and provides a forum for exchange among technical disciplines that impact criticality safety, including operational criticality safety, experimental criticality, nuclear data, and radiation transport code development. The field of criticality safety, like other related nuclear engineering fields, is experiencing significant personnel turnover and an increasingly less experienced staff makes the need for technical knowledge transfer ever more important.
The theme of NCSD 2022 is Learning from the Past and Looking to the Future. In the mindset of embracing the future, in addition to full papers (6-10 pages) and 15-minute technical presentations or posters, the organizing committee encourages summary papers (1-4 pages) for 3-minute Lightning Talks, especially from more junior staff. In addition, all poster authors are encouraged to submit a 60-second advertising video (similar to a Tik Tok video format) with their final paper submission 2 weeks before the start of the conference. The videos for posters will be played during the relevant technical sessions, and the three best videos will be played at the opening plenary session.
