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.
This division promotes the development and timely introduction of fusion energy as a sustainable energy source with favorable economic, environmental, and safety attributes. The division cooperates with other organizations on common issues of multidisciplinary fusion science and technology, conducts professional meetings, and disseminates technical information in support of these goals. Members focus on the assessment and resolution of critical developmental issues for practical fusion energy applications.

Notes on fusion
The ST25-HTS tokamak.
Governments around the world have been interested in fusion for more than 70 years. Fusion research was largely secret until 1968, when the Soviets unveiled exciting results from their tokamak (a magnetic confinement fusion device with a particular configuration that produces a toroidal plasma). The Soviets realized that tokamaks were not useful as weapons but could produce plasma in the million-degree temperature range to demonstrate Soviet scientific and technical prowess to the world.
Following this breakthrough, government laboratories around the world continued to pursue various methods of confining hot plasma to understand plasma physics under extreme conditions, getting closer and closer to the conditions necessary for fusion energy production. Tokamaks have been by far the most successful configuration. In the 1990s, the Tokamak Fusion Test Reactor at the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory produced 10 MW of fusion power using deuterium-tritium fusion. A few years later, the Joint European Torus (JET) in the United Kingdom increased that to 16 MW, getting close to breakeven using 24 MW of power to heat the plasma.

Presentations should not have copyrighted material included, because the sessions will be recorded and viewable by meeting attendees at any time. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or need assistance ahead of time.
All links will be live 30 minutes before the first session starts. Please feel free to add all your sessions to your personalized itinerary. You can also add sessions to your calendar by clicking on "Subscribe to Your Itinerary Calendar." Please note the zoom link for each track will stay live the entire afternoon. If you are switching tracks, or are watching a track that is combining sessions, you may have to open a new zoom link.
Yes, each technical session will have a Knowledge Manager assigned for basic assistance. For any extra assistance or questions, please email email@example.com.
Yes, all attendees need to register to gain access to the platform and access to the technical session links. Register now!
Please speak directly to your Session Organizer for assistance on how your session will be run.
Yes, the PowerPoint Template is available on the Resources page.
Sign in to the ANS website and click this link: “Sessions” in the left menu. Click on add attachments. Please note you need to be registered in order to have access to the meeting site.
We are allowing PDF, PPT, MP4, and links to external (e.g. YouTube, Vimeo) videos (for prerecorded videos).
The sessions will all take place live, but if a presenter cannot make their designated time, there may be part of a session prerecorded.
Yes, please note all sessions will be recorded and made available shortly after on the ANS site. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if recording may cause any issues.
Yes, registrants will have access to all sessions. Please give ANS 24 hours after completion of session to post the recordings to the platform.
That is up to the author and the Session organizer. We recommend that each presenter share their screen and run their own presentation. Session Organizers and Knowledge Managers will be ready in case of an internet connection issue, power loss, etc.
The sessions will run in the Zoom Meeting platform. The only option is to “raise your hand”; there will not be a chat or Q&A function.
Please contact email@example.com and they will direct your question to the appropriate staff.
There will be a comments section on each session page of the meeting platform. Please feel free to browse the sessions!
There is no app for this meeting.
Yes! We have several options. Please visit the Resources page to download and for instructions.
Yes, please send a list of all sessions attended live (no recorded sessions) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
