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.

Topic: When research goes wrong, turn the table or ditch?
This roundtable discussion will delve into the topic of how, what, when, and why to proceed from failed research in the nuclear mathematics and computational community. Do you pivot, ditch it all, or turn it all around? Also, how is failure currently perceived in the MCD community especially when it comes to publishing? Has this changed from the past and will it change going forward? These are just some of the questions that will be explored. Personal anecdotes and experiences will be shared from a panel of speakers as well as the audience.
