or almost 40 years, the ANS topical meeting on Probabilistic Safety Assessment has been providing a forum for leaders in the risk assessment community to exchange information, present results from their work, review the state of the industry, and charter future directions and needs for the deployment of a safer and more efficient fleet of nuclear power plant systems around the World. In 2017, the ANS PSA conference returns in Pittsburgh, PA.
Probabilistic Safety Assessments have been instrumental in the advancement of safety of the existing fleet on nuclear plants, and have supported the design of new reactor concepts. Risk-informed technologies and applications have made plants more reliable and efficient to run. The evolution of PSA technology and tools in support of the next generation of risk-informed applications and design will be highlighted at this exciting event.
This conference is held every two years and is expected to attract over 300 specialists from the U.S. and abroad. There will be more than 250 scientific/technical presentations in plenary and parallel sessions with additional panel, workshop, and discussion sessions bringing together the business in scientific/technical interests of participants and exhibitors.
