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's objectives are to promote the advancement of knowledge and understanding of the fundamental physical phenomena characterizing nuclear reactors and other nuclear systems. The division encourages research and disseminates information through meetings and publications. Areas of technical interest include nuclear data, particle interactions and transport, reactor and nuclear systems analysis, methods, design, validation and operating experience and standards. The Wigner Award heads the awards program.

Predictions: What lies ahead for nuclear in 2022
As we begin a new year, it is natural not only to look back (see page 24 for top news stories of 2021) but also to look forward. Nuclear News reached out to leaders in the nuclear community to get their predictions on what 2022 has in store, whether broadly or for their specific areas within the community. Although the responses below are wide-ranging and varied, one thing is made clear by all of the respondents: 2022 will see growth and opportunity. The future for nuclear is bright.

Making Virtual a Reality: Advancements in Reactor Physics to Leap Forward Reactor Operation and Deployment
Pittsburgh, PA|Sheraton Pittsburgh Hotel
On behalf of American Nuclear Society Pittsburgh Section, Exelon Nuclear Generation and Westinghouse Electric Company, thank you for joining us for the 2022 International Conference on Physics of Reactors (PHYSOR) conference!
The conference will take place in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA on May 15-20, 2022. PHYSOR attracts international experts from all segments of the nuclear industry and scientific community, including vendors, utilities, laboratories, and universities. The theme for this year’s conference is Making Virtual a Reality: Advancements in Reactor Physics to Leap Forward Reactor Operation and Deployment.
As the nuclear industry continues to drive operational and economic performance improvements in current LWRs, and development and deployment of micro-reactors, small modular reactors and advanced reactors, continued innovation in reactor physics methodologies across a broad spectrum of topics is required. We have organized PHYSOR 2022 to cover a broad range of topics in thirty standard and special sessions tracks, and ten panel sessions. The conference also has ten half-day and full-day workshops planned (see Call for Papers).
Since the first PHYSOR conference in 1990, the conference has focused on reactor physics advancements and provided a platform showcase for pioneering concepts, methods, and products. As we leap forward to the future of nuclear technology, micro reactors, small modular reactors, advanced reactors, and high energy LWR fuel are at the forefront.
We look forward to joining together to celebrate reactor physics with the nuclear community in 2022!
