The American Nuclear Society (ANS) kicks off its 2012 Winter Conference and Nuclear Technology Expo on Monday, November 12, in San Diego, CA, with sessions featuring leading nuclear experts on nuclear science and technology issues.

“The nuclear science community continues to innovate across the board, ensuring that nuclear energy is safe and reliable today and an important contributor to tomorrow’s clean energy needs,” said ANS President Michael Corradini, PhD.

The theme of this year’s conference is "Future Nuclear Technologies: Resilience and Flexibility." The ANS Winter Conference and Nuclear Technology Expo marks the tenth anniversary of the Generation IV (Gen IV) International Forum.
