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.
Aerospace Nuclear Science & Technology
Organized to promote the advancement of knowledge in the use of nuclear science and technologies in the aerospace application. Specialized nuclear-based technologies and applications are needed to advance the state-of-the-art in aerospace design, engineering and operations to explore planetary bodies in our solar system and beyond, plus enhance the safety of air travel, especially high speed air travel. Areas of interest will include but are not limited to the creation of nuclear-based power and propulsion systems, multifunctional materials to protect humans and electronic components from atmospheric, space, and nuclear power system radiation, human factor strategies for the safety and reliable operation of nuclear power and propulsion plants by non-specialized personnel and more.

Lighting the path for next-generation PRA leaders in nuclear engineering
Our next-generation leaders must begin to think more creatively, using risk-informed solutions to ensure safe, resilient, sustainable, and socially responsible technological advancements to usher in an era void of technological accidents. Probabilistic risk assessment (PRA) research and education provide nuclear engineering students with the scientific expertise and viable skill sets essential for meeting the growing demand for risk analysts in nuclear energy domains.
Oral presentations are conducted via PowerPoint. The ANS speaker PowerPoint template below must be used for professional consistency. Prior to the conference your presentation must be uploaded to the the ANS conference website. Instructions can be found below. Presentations can have slide animations as you will have control over your presentation. In case of technical difficulties, the support staff on the Zoom call will present your slides for you. Presenters will have 15 minutes to present and 5 minutes of Q&A. A maximum time limit of 20 minutes per presenter is allotted. Presentations will be cut off after that to allow time for other presenters. Please name your presentation XXXXXX_lastname.pptx where XXXXX is your paper ID when uploading to the ANS website. In addition, please include your paper ID on the first slide of your presentation.
Drop-in training sessions have also been setup for first time presenters to help familiarize them with the conferencing software and platform. While not mandatory, it is highly recommended all presenters attend one of these sessions. Training schedule can be found below.
Oral Presentations must be uploaded on to the ANS Student Conference website by Apr. 1, 2021, 11:59 PM EST.
Poster submissions must be pre-recorded as .mp4 files and cannot be larger than 100 MB. The length of the poster must be between 3 to 5 minutes long and cannot have more than 3 power point slides (you will be requested to redo if the poster recording is deemed inadequate). You may use the oral presentation template or your own template. It is recommend to NOT have a title slide and jump straight into the content introduction as you would a regular poster. During the conference, poster recordings will be available to view by all registered participants. Judges will also judge your poster recording and present a "Best Paper Award" at the awards ceremony on Saturday Apr. 10, 2021 from 6:00 - 7:00 PM EST.
Poster submission to the dropbox must be in a PDF format AND as a MP4 recording. The name of your files should be XXXXXXX_LastName.pdf and XXXXXXX_LastName.mp4. Replace "XXXXXXX" with your paper ID. No other naming convention will be accepted.
