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.

Eric A. Thornsbury
In this panel session, each panelist will discuss their perspectives on needed improvements in risk analysis methods and tools to support the development and deployment of advanced reactors. Because advanced reactors are expected to employ more advanced systems designed to operate differently than the existing large, commercial, operating plants, improvements in existing risk methods and tools may be beneficial. The range of panelists will provide perspectives from advanced reactor developers and current utilities that are looking toward future advanced reactor construction and operation. Each speaker will provide a 10-minute summary, followed by a question-and-answer opportunity.
