The Pacific Basin Nuclear Conference is a broad-based, international conference focused on areas of nuclear technology, engineering and science, and policy issues that accompany nuclear energy programs throughout the Pacific Rim. The meeting is sponsored by the Pacific Nuclear Council and American Nuclear Society (ANS). The first meeting was held in 1976 in Honolulu, Hawaii, USA. Subsequent meetings have been held about every two years under the joint sponsorship of the Pacific Nuclear Council (PNC) and a sponsoring PNC Member Society. The conferences have played a vital role in providing for discussion and information relating to both research and development and to the implementation of nuclear energy technology in the Pacific Basin. The Pacific Nuclear Council is composed primarily of nuclear societies and associations from nations around the Pacific Rim. The council exists to share information and best practices on the peaceful use of nuclear energy. Today, the council has working groups and task forces addressing waste management, advanced reactors, standards and public information programs. The council also co-sponsors the biennial Pacific Basin Nuclear Conference.
