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.

A day in the life of the nuclear community
The November issue of Nuclear News is focused on the individuals who make up our nuclear community.
We invited a small group of those individuals to tell us about their day-to-day work in some of the many occupations and applications of nuclear science and technology, and they responded generously. They were ready to tell us about the part they play, together with colleagues and team members, in supplying clean energy, advancing technology, protecting safety and health, and exploring fundamental science.
In these pages, we see a community that can celebrate both those workdays that record progress moving at a steady pace and the exceptional days when a goal is reached, a briefing is delivered, a contract goes through, a discovery is made, or an unforeseen challenge is overcome.
The Nuclear News staff hopes that you enjoy meeting these members of our community—or maybe get reacquainted with friends—through their words and photos.
Educational Session|Panel|Sponsored by Performance Improvement
Tuesday, August 11, 2020|11:00AM–12:30PM (12:00–1:30PM EDT)
Fred Lake (WD Associates)
Kevin Rackley (TVA/CAPOG)
Sudipta Saha (Univ. of South Carolina)
This session provides a forum for discussion of fundamental principles that make complex data more understandable, usable, and accessible so that station leaders can more effectively communicate performance gaps and make better informed decisions for the organization. A framework, currently in use at one organization, will provide the basis of a discussion on key attributes to support a deliberate, step-by-step approach that helps measure what matters in a more efficient and more engaging manner. The intent of this session is to lay the foundation for future work on exploring the value of using AI/Machine Learning to improve data analytics and visualization.
