The ANS PSA biennial topical conference has been a forum for communication on major probabilistic risk and nuclear safety topics worldwide, including issues, methods, applications, insights, policy, research, and risk-informed regulation experience. The overarching theme of PSA 2019 was the role of probabilistic methods in understanding uncertainties and improving the safety and security of nuclear facilities and activities. PSA 2019 had 129 presentations with topics including multiunit and full-site PSA, dynamic PSA, advanced and small modular reactors (SMRs), the human-machine interface and human reliability assessment (HRA), waste processing/cleanup, reliability of systems/structures/components, natural phenomena/seismic and fire risk, the growing area of decommissioning and decontamination of nuclear facilities, testing to reduce uncertainties, as well as advances in core areas of traditional Level 1, 2, and 3 PSA.
