With the theme “Nuclear is Good for You,” the 2020 ANS Virtual Winter Meeting kicks off on November 16 with the opening plenary session. The plenary features two keynote speakers—Alex Epstein, of the Center for Industrial Progress, and Jessica Lovering, of the Good Energy Collective—in a discussion about why nuclear is the right choice for the benefit of all humankind.

The Winter Meeting features more than 35 panel sessions, 100-plus technical sessions, and more than 440 paper presentations.

More than 2,100 registrants have already signed up. That tops the preregistration total of 1,700 for the 2020 ANS Virtual Annual Meeting, which was the largest ANS meeting in modern history.

If you haven’t registered yet, do so now! Registration is open through Thursday, November 19.

There's more! In conjunction with the Winter Meeting, ANS is sponsoring the Technology of Fusion Energy (TOFE) 2020 Virtual Meeting and the Consortium for Advanced Simulation of Light Water Reactors (CASL) Virtual Meeting. Both meetings run through Thursday.

TOFE features daily plenary sessions and four days of technical sessions. CASL kicks off with two opening plenary sessions followed by three days of technical sessions, beginning on Tuesday.

Being social: Even in the virtual realm, the ANS Winter Meeting offers ways for attendees to socialize. Several divisions are hosting special networking. Plus, ANS’s popular Trivia Night will be held on Tuesday and Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. (EST), offering the chance to network with peers and to compete for fun prizes. Attendees may participate as an individual or form a team (limit of five people per team). The event is free, but please register to receive the Zoom link.
