Progress being made on Nuclear Grand Challenges
Early in my year as ANS vice president/president-elect, I was determined to try to find a project that the entire ANS community could rally behind and could be completed during my year as ANS president. I was looking for something that would provide community-identified focus areas for future activities and that would mobilize, energize, and inspire ANS members during that year and in the years ahead.

The second Advances in Nuclear Nonproliferation Technology and Policy Conference (ANTPC) 2018 is rescheduled to take place
during the ANS Winter Meeting due to widespread flooding following Hurricane Florence. This Meeting is co-sponsored by
the American Nuclear Society's Nuclear Nonproliferation Policy and Fuel Cycle Waste Management Divisions. The goal is to
stimulate conversation among nuclear science researchers, facilities operators, and policy makers and provide a venue for
discussions on relevant policy and technical needs in nonproliferation.
