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.

Sustainable solutions for long-term management and eventual disposal of spent nuclear fuel and high-level radioactive waste depend on the interplay among the social, political, and technical realms. The goal of this panel is to discover constructive ways in which social scientists and technical staff can work together to advance solutions that address all aspects of the problem in a collaborative manner. The discussion will highlight the history of interactions between social scientists and technical staff in the context of past disposal programs in the US; what roles different engineering, physical science, and social science disciplines have played and can play; and how to address emerging priorities like environmental justice.
