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.
Nuclear Criticality Safety
NCSD provides communication among nuclear criticality safety professionals through the development of standards, the evolution of training methods and materials, the presentation of technical data and procedures, and the creation of specialty publications. In these ways, the division furthers the exchange of technical information on nuclear criticality safety with the ultimate goal of promoting the safe handling of fissionable materials outside reactors.

Art exhibit visits IIT
Nuclear power plant cooling towers are easily recognizable for their familiar hyperboloid shape. But an art exhibit running at the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago aims to give visitors a different perspective.
The Art of the Reactor, an exhibit by the National Museum of Nuclear Science and History and hosted by IIT’s Lewis College of Science and Letters, opened on November 4 and runs until Sunday, December 4 at Hermann Hall on the IIT campus.

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has limited funds at its disposal to help meet the travel costs of attendance at the TopFuel 2022 Light Water Reactor Fuel Performance Conference by selected participants from IAEA Member States. Preference will be given to participants who are expected to make an important contribution to the Conference. Generally, not more than one grant will be awarded to any one country.
If organizations wish to apply for a grant on behalf of one of their participants, they should address specific requests to the Conference to this effect. Organizations should ensure that applications for grants are:
• Submitted by September 16;
• Accompanied by duly completed and signed Grant Application Form giving detailed information on the scientific qualifications of the candidate and signed by the head of the applicant’s organization.
Applications which do not comply with the above conditions cannot be considered.
The grants awarded will be in the form of a lump sum, usually covering part of the travel cost of attendance.
