NPIC&HMIT is the de facto forum for nuclear instrumentation and control (I&C) and human factors engineering (HFE) professionals to meet with leaders in industry and academia, discover the state of the technology, exchange information, and discuss future directions. In addition to an impressive list of government and industry leaders, we are also planning several outstanding hot-topic technical sessions and popular plenary speakers, which will attract professionals from across the nation and internationally.
Since 1978, the ANS biennial topical conference on Probabilistic Safety Assessment has been a worldwide forum for communication of major probabilistic risk and safety topics, including issues, methods, applications, insights, policy, research, and risk-informed regulation experience. PSA 2023 will be of interest to those working in traditional applications such as nuclear reactor facilities, nonreactor installations, processing, decontamination & decommissioning, storage as well as other nontraditional areas where probabilistic safety approaches are applied.
