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.
Operations & Power
Members focus on the dissemination of knowledge and information in the area of power reactors with particular application to the production of electric power and process heat. The division sponsors meetings on the coverage of applied nuclear science and engineering as related to power plants, non-power reactors, and other nuclear facilities. It encourages and assists with the dissemination of knowledge pertinent to the safe and efficient operation of nuclear facilities through professional staff development, information exchange, and supporting the generation of viable solutions to current issues.

DOE incentivizes interim storage with $16 million funding opportunity
The Department of Energy has announced that it will make $16 million in funding available to communities interested in learning more about “consent-based siting, management of spent nuclear fuel, and interim storage facility siting considerations.” The funding opportunity follows the DOE’s recent update to its consent-based process for siting an interim storage facility for SNF.

Passing the Torch
Knoxville, TN|University of Tennessee at Knoxville
For the first time, the ANS Student Conference will be held at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville in 2023. We are excited to welcome students from around the country to our beautiful city and introduce them to the exciting events happening within the Department of Nuclear Engineering as well as in the surrounding area.
We have chosen the theme of “Passing the Torch” to pay homage to our University’s academic mascot, the Torchbearer. Living by this theme, we want the conference to be a symbol for continuing nuclear sciences from one generation to the next. Our intentions for all attendees of the conference are to reflect on the growth of the nuclear industry, along with thinking innovatively when hearing from those that came before to motivate nuclear scientists and engineers in progressing one step forward towards their individual aspirations.
Questions? For more information on the conference or how to get involved, please contact the organizers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
