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.
Isotopes & Radiation
Members are devoted to applying nuclear science and engineering technologies involving isotopes, radiation applications, and associated equipment in scientific research, development, and industrial processes. Their interests lie primarily in education, industrial uses, biology, medicine, and health physics. Division committees include Analytical Applications of Isotopes and Radiation, Biology and Medicine, Radiation Applications, Radiation Sources and Detection, and Thermal Power Sources.

Enhance your visibility at the NPIC&HMIT and PSA 2023 by becoming a sponsor. All sponsors are recognized on the meeting website and in promotional communications. All sponsors will also be acknowledged at the Opening Plenary and on signage displayed in the combined meeting/exhibit hall throughout the meeting. Sponsorship packages are limited, so reserve your sponsorship package early.
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.
Submit an Abstract
This topical meeting is the 13th in a series organized by ANS’s Human Factors, Instrumentation & Controls Division (HFICD). Authors are invited to participate in the International Topical Meeting on Nuclear Plant Instrumentation, Control, and Human-Machine Interface Technologies (NPIC & HMIT 2023).
The meeting welcomes the submission of full-length technical papers, which will be peer reviewed and published as conference proceedings. Accepted papers must be presented at the meeting to be included in the conference proceedings. Papers will be scheduled for either podium or poster presentation at the discretion of the meeting organizers.
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.
Full papers must describe work that is new, significant, and relevant to risk assessment and risk-informed decision making. The limit for full-paper submissions is 10 pages. Papers exceeding 10 pages will be rejected. If an exception is made and a paper over 10 pages is accepted, page charges are $100/page for p. 11 and above.
Authors of accepted papers must agree to register and attend the conference and present their papers. Papers that are not presented in person at the conference will not appear in the final conference publication. Selected papers will be invited to submit extended manuscripts for publication as a special issue in Nuclear Technology.
