Guidelines for Summaries

Please submit summaries describing work that is NEW, SIGNIFICANT, and RELEVANT to the nuclear industry. ANS will publish all accepted summaries in the TRANSACTIONS. Papers are presented orally at the meeting, and presenters are expected to register for the meeting. Completed papers may be published elsewhere, but the summaries become the property of ANS. Under no circumstances should a summary or full paper be published in any other publication prior to presentation at the ANS meeting. It is the author’s responsibility to protect classified or proprietary information.
