IPCC opens registration for expert review of draft report
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)—the United Nations body established to assess the science related to climate change—is offering experts an opportunity to review the draft version of its Sixth Assessment Synthesis Report.
IPCC assessment reports are published every six to seven years. The Fifth Assessment Report, completed in 2014, provided the main scientific input to the 2015 Paris Agreement.
Interested experts can register for participation in the review here. Registration is open through March 13. The review period ends on March 20.
Transactions of the American Nuclear Society publishes summaries of all papers presented at the ANS Annual and Winter Meetings, which are reviewed by the National Program Committee and ANS Division representatives. Only those papers presenting new and significant advancements in nuclear science and technology are selected. Topics covered include the following: accelerator applications; biology and medicine; decommissioning, decontamination, and reutilization; education and training; environmental sciences; fuel cycle and waste management; fusion energy; human factors; isotopes and radiation; materials science and technology; mathematics and computation; nuclear criticality safety; nuclear installations safety; operations and power; radiation, protection and shielding; reactor physics; robotics and remote systems; and thermal hydraulics.
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.
