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.
Operations & Power
Members focus on the dissemination of knowledge and information in the area of power reactors with particular application to the production of electric power and process heat. The division sponsors meetings on the coverage of applied nuclear science and engineering as related to power plants, non-power reactors, and other nuclear facilities. It encourages and assists with the dissemination of knowledge pertinent to the safe and efficient operation of nuclear facilities through professional staff development, information exchange, and supporting the generation of viable solutions to current issues.

Art exhibit visits IIT
Nuclear power plant cooling towers are easily recognizable for their familiar hyperboloid shape. But an art exhibit running at the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago aims to give visitors a different perspective.
The Art of the Reactor, an exhibit by the National Museum of Nuclear Science and History and hosted by IIT’s Lewis College of Science and Letters, opened on November 4 and runs until Sunday, December 4 at Hermann Hall on the IIT campus.

The 12th international topical meeting on Nuclear Plant Instrumentation, Control and Human-Machine interface Technologies (NPIC&HMIT 2021) was held virtually June 14-17, 2021, embedded in the 2021 ANS Virtual Annual Meeting. Organized by ANS's Human Factors, Instrumentation & Controls Division (HFICD), the meeting focused on advances and successes in technologies and deployment and lessons learned. The meeting proceedings include 144 papers from the instrumentation and controls (I&C) and human-machine interface communities that address such topics as advances in sensors and sensor characterization, control-room design, and I&C systems; the latest trends in digital I&C and human factors; digital considerations for safety applications; and I&C for autonomous operations and online maintenance i the next generation of reactors.
