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.

Eisenhower’s “Atoms for Peace” at 70
Seventy years ago to the day, President Dwight D. Eisenhower gave his historic address to the United Nations General Assembly in New York City. (See December 2023 Nuclear News's “Leaders” column to read the reflections of Kathryn Huff, the Department of Energy’s assistant secretary for nuclear energy, on the speech’s anniversary.)
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.
