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.

Penn State wants a Westinghouse eVinci microreactor on campus
Penn State University has announced plans to explore siting a Westinghouse Electric Company eVinci microreactor on its State College campus in central Pennsylvania. Under a memorandum of understanding to perform research and development work that could advance the future commercial deployment of eVinci, a team of researchers in Penn State’s Ken and Mary Alice Lindquist Department of Nuclear Engineering also plans to explore how eVinci could displace some fossil-fueled energy sources on campus.

University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign|iHotel and Conference Center
We are aware of a recent COVID-19 outbreak at UIUC after last week's Engineering Open House event. The most up-to-date testing information from UIUC is available on the Illinois Covid Dashboard website. We believe the ANS Student Conference location is sufficiently isolated from the rest of the campus. However, we are making the following adjustments to our policies to mitigate any potential spread at the conference.
2) Masks are mandatory. Everyone must wear a mask during the conference. We strongly encourage N95 or KN95 masks.
We understand that this may affect your decision to attend the conference. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes. If you no longer wish to attend, we will fully refund your registration fee, no questions asked; contact email@example.com.
We still look forward to a stimulating conference.
We in the American Nuclear Society and Department of Nuclear, Plasma, and Radiological Engineering at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign eagerly look forward to welcoming students, professionals, and the future leaders in nuclear science and technology at the 2022 ANS Student Conference.
Our theme is: Saving the World One Atom at a Time. This theme reflects the important role the nuclear sciences will play in solving many of the world’s grand challenges. It also recognizes the atomic contributions we all make every day. Together, these contributions form the foundations of solutions to these grand challenges. It celebrates the people that make science possible by acknowledging that we come to this conference from an infinitude of backgrounds and experiences. It encourages us to widen our circles and include scientists and engineers with a diversity of thoughts. Finally, it inspires us to be active participants in the solutions to the world’s problems.
This year, our planning committee is hosting Fall semester information sessions with student sections to give them the ins and outs of attending our in-person conference. If your section would like to set up a session, contact our Technical Co-Chair Jeremy Mettler at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Summaries including research, internship projects, senior design projects, and nuclear policy are invited. Summaries should be 1-4 pages in length, and follow the ANS Transactions guidelines.
