NPIC&HMIT and PSA 2023 call for journal papers

The NPIC&HMIT 2023 and PSA 2023 conferences have partnered with ANS journals Nuclear Science and Engineering (NSE) and Nuclear Technology (NT) to publish special issues of papers derived from the conferences. Additionally, should you choose not to pursue journal publication, we invite you to consider submitting to the special collections on the ANS online platform Nuclear Science and Technology Open Research (NSTOR). See below or click here for more information on NSTOR.

If interested, please contact the guest editors listed below or submit directly via the links below.

**Submission window: open now with a final deadline of March 31, 2024


  • Your submitted paper should be derived from your conference paper but must be updated to include final results and a full description of the methods/technology.
  • For NSE and NT, your paper will go through the standard journal peer review process. This invitation is not a guarantee of acceptance or publication. For NSTOR, your article will be screened and then published online ahead of peer review.
  • Please be mindful of the article type when submitting your paper. See the descriptions online: NSE | NT | NSTOR
  • Standard publication in NSE and NT is free of charge, while open access publication is available for a fee ($2,630 per paper). NSTOR is fully open access and normally has publication charges dependent upon article type; although, these fees are 100% discounted if submitting before December 31, 2024.
  • There is no restriction on length. Please follow submission guidelines at the websites below: NSE | NT | NSTOR
  • For NSE and NT, accepted papers are published online ahead of print, immediately following copyediting and typesetting—usually within 6 to 8 weeks. The compiled special issue will follow, with print publication estimated for Q4 2024.

NPIC&HMIT 2023 and PSA 2023 meetings will be co-located. One registration fee includes both meetings, co-organized plenaries, tours and much more. These will allow attendees to enter mutually beneficial collaborations and ensure the cross-fertilization of methods, technologies, and ideas.

13th Nuclear Plant Instrumentation, Control & Human-Machine Interface Technologies (NPIC&HMIT 2023)

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.
