Every 4 years the international nuclear criticality safety community gathers to discuss technical, operational, computational, and regulatory issues in the practice of nuclear criticality safety. The 2015 International Conference on Nuclear Criticality (ICNC 2015) allowed specialists from around the globe to come together to discuss, analyze, and study the latest developments in the area of nuclear criticality safety. This was a unique opportunity to exchange ideas with industry experts, leaders, colleagues, and peers. For the first time in 20 years, ICNC was back in the United States. The meeting included a 4-day technical program covering all areas of nuclear criticality safety in nuclear operations.
