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.

How the NRC modernized its digital I&C infrastructure and where it goes from here
The Nuclear Regulatory Commissiona first formally developed infrastructure for the review of digital instrumentation and control (I&C) systems in the 1990s. Although the current fleet of nuclear power plants in the United States was originally designed and constructed with analog systems, the U.S. nuclear industry has for more than 30 years been working to upgrade these older systems with modern digital equipment.

Experiencing some sort of disruption due to Covid may be the thing we all have the most in common. Whether it was transitioning to online classes, parenting while navigating online study, having your laboratory temporarily closed, or foregoing a highly anticipated internship, the possible disruptions seem countless and could certainly be overwhelming. Join us for a discussion on the research, academic, and scholarly disruptions that students, and even faculty, have faced over the last year. We're prompting our panelists to share what disruptions most influenced their day to day lives and career plans. In addition, we hope everyone can share their academic "Covid hacks" so to say, and express some alternative directions, coping strategies, and over-all words of affirmation and encouragement for managing these disruptions. We will kick off the panel with a few virtual polls for our attendees to gauge how everyone has been and continues to be impacted, to make for a customized and interactive discussion.
