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.
The division was organized to promote the advancement of knowledge of the use of particle accelerator technologies for nuclear and other applications. It focuses on production of neutrons and other particles, utilization of these particles for scientific or industrial purposes, such as the production or destruction of radionuclides significant to energy, medicine, defense or other endeavors, as well as imaging and diagnostics.

Venue, date changed for ANS’s Annual Conference
The American Nuclear Society’s 2024 Annual Conference is moving the venue in part to accommodate a higher-than-expected number of submissions for the Annual Conference and embedded topical meetings—the most received for an annual meeting in over a decade! The conference venue was changed to Mandalay Bay at the beginning of the Las Vegas strip. However, the change in accommodation comes with a change in dates: The meeting has been moved one week later than originally scheduled, to June 16–19.
18th International Probabilistic Safety Assessment and Analysis (PSA 2023)
Technical Session|Panel|PSA Panels|Cosponsored by NPIC&HMIT
Wednesday, July 19, 2023|1:00–2:45PM EDT|300D
Michael D. Muhlheim
This panel discusses the regulatory aspects of Digital Twin (DT) application in nuclear and its capabilities within regulated activities related to nuclear power plant (NPP) facilities, fuel cycle facilities, and other related facilities. The ongoing and planned near-term efforts for DTs in nuclear reactor applications are mostly focused on non-safety systems and processes. An increasing industry application of DT technology may result in greater benefit and confidence in the application of these technologies. Such applications may have direct and indirect impacts on NRC-regulated activities.
