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.
Decommissioning & Environmental Sciences
The mission of the Decommissioning and Environmental Sciences (DES) Division is to promote the development and use of those skills and technologies associated with the use of nuclear energy and the optimal management and stewardship of the environment, sustainable development, decommissioning, remediation, reutilization, and long-term surveillance and maintenance of nuclear-related installations, and sites. The target audience for this effort is the membership of the Division, the Society, and the public at large.

A review of workforce trends in the nuclear community
The nuclear community is undergoing a moment of unprecedented interest and growth not seen in decades. The passage of the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act and the Inflation Reduction Act are providing a multitude of new funding opportunities for the nuclear community, and not just the current fleet. A mix of technologies and reactor types are being evaluated and deployed, with Vogtle Units 3 and 4 coming on line later this year, the Advanced Reactor Demonstration Projects of X-energy and TerraPower, and NuScale’s work with Utah Associated Municipal Power Systems to build a first-of-a-kind small modular reactor, making this is an exciting time to join the nuclear workforce.
Proceedings can be purchased from the ANS Store.
As the nuclear community expands and relates to more and more allied technical fields, the Topical Meeting becomes an increasingly important medium of communication. Under American Nuclear Society sponsorship, Topical Meetings are presented each year within the United States as well as internationally.
The ANS Proceedings of Topical Meetings provide archival records of these important technical exchanges. These Proceedings meet established scientific and technical standards, especially as to the criteria for acceptance and review of technical papers published. Hundreds of highly qualified specialists personally participate in ANS Topical Meetings. An awareness of the technology as reported, discussed, and appraised at these meetings can be of inestimable value to those who could not attend.
ANS publications cannot accept papers from countries that are on the list of Sanctioned Countries and Programs, issued by the Office of Foreign Assets Control of the U.S. Department of Treasury, in the resource-center sanction programs.
