The theme for the NPIC&HMIT 2010 meeting was, "Nuclear Power I&C-HMIT: A Sure Bet for a Reliable and Green Energy Future." This reflects the critical role that I&C and HMI technologies play in the safe and reliable operation of nuclear power plants providing a dependable source of electricity around the world. In addition it points out the global role of nuclear power in reducing greenhouse gases from the generation of electricity, leading to a "green" environment for ourselves and future generations.This proceedings contains about 220 full papers with the following topics of interest: digital I&C issues; regulatory aspects of I&C in the U.S. and other countries; I&C needs of small and medium modular reactors; advanced surveillance, diagnostics, and prognostic technologies and applications; current concepts in advanced control rooms; HFE design and analysis tools; I&C knowledge management and training; I&C applications for physical and cyber security; HFE standards and guidelines; operator training; human interaction with automation; human performance modeling in the nuclear environment; and safety culture and human reliability issues.
