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.
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.

National Museum of Nuclear Science and History explores “atomic” culture
For many of us, the toys of our childhood leave indelible marks on our consciousness, affecting our long-term perceptions and attitudes about certain things. Hot Wheels may inspire a lifelong fascination with fast, flashy automobiles, while Barbies might shape ideas about beauty and self-image. For the generation who grew up during the Atomic Age—the post–World War II era from roughly the mid-1940s to the early 1960s—the toys, games, and entertainment of their childhoods might have included things like atomic pistols, atomic trains, rings with tiny amounts of radioactive elements, and comic books, puzzles, and music about nuclear weapons.
Maintaining the Momentum
Monday, November 138:00–11:00AM
Announcing this year's ANS Winter Conference and expo Theme:
Nuclear is enjoying a well-earned moment in the sun. In the last few years, the need for reliable, clean energy has come into sharper focus. We have witnessed historic public investments in both new and existing nuclear technology, accompanied by a strengthening of public support and acceptance. Is the industry up to the task of capitalizing on these tailwinds? To be successful we will need to maintain our current nuclear plants and facilities at their peak condition for long term operations while we simultaneously commercialize a new generation of advanced technologies. Challenges abound. We need a larger workforce, reinvigorated supply chains, a robust nuclear R&D infrastructure, and expanded public and private sector investments, and increased public advocacy for the benefits of the nuclear power.
How do we maintain momentum in a rapidly changing energy and environmental landscape? Join America’s top nuclear leaders and be part of the conversation.
Over a quarter of our audience has decision-making and buying power (CNO, COO, VP and Senior level staff). These powerful decision-makers control huge budgets and attend the Winter Conference and Expo with serious purchasing intent, looking for new technology solutions and practical innovations that best fit their operations’ needs.
Is your organization looking to bring on new talent with fresh ideas and energy? Thirty two percent of our audience are students and young members, just finishing college or looking for their first opportunity in the industry. Make your presence known to graduates from some of the top universities in the world.
