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 provides a forum for focused technical dialogue on thermal hydraulic technology in the nuclear industry. Specifically, this will include heat transfer and fluid mechanics involved in the utilization of nuclear energy. It is intended to attract the highest quality of theoretical and experimental work to ANS, including research on basic phenomena and application to nuclear system design.

PHYSOR 2024 call for journal papers
PHYSOR 2024 has partnered with the ANS journal Nuclear Science and Engineering (NSE) to publish a special issue of papers derived from the conference. Additionally, should you choose not to pursue journal publication, we invite you to consider submitting to 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 June 28, 2024.
Please consider the scopes of the journals when deciding where to submit.
Nuclear Science and Engineering welcomes submissions that explore basic and fundamental research in all areas related to nuclear science and engineering.
Submit to NSE – Questions? Email email@example.com.
Nuclear Science and Technology Open Research welcomes submissions where authors prefer, or funders require, a fully open publication venue for research articles, and/or where authors would like to submit article types not typically supported by archival journals (e.g., brief reports, method articles, data notes, posters/presentations).
Submit to NSTOR – Questions? Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you again for attending PHYSOR 2024, and we hope you participate in this special issue opportunity!
Our very best,

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 2024!
