ANST Exchange Meeting 08222011

The Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Nuclear Physics (NP) organized a two-day presentation meeting between the Principal Investigators with 2009 and 2010 awards in Applications of Nuclear Science and Technology (ANS&T) supported by NP and American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funds, interested members of the NP community, and NP Federal Program Managers. The meeting included presentations from the Principal Investigators and from two keynote speakers. Program Managers from other federal agencies with programmatic interests in ANS&T also attended.

The goals and purpose of the meeting:

  • To provide a platform for Principal Investigators to present the status of their NP-supported grant work in ANS&T to the NP Program Managers, to interested people from the NP community, and to Federal Program Managers from other agencies

  • To provide an opportunity for NP to assess the progress made on each grant

  • To offer an opportunity to exchange information with the community and other federal agencies regarding each group’s application work and capabilities

  • To provide the interested agencies with an opportunity to expand their awareness of potentially new capabilities in the field

The first day was devoted to nuclear data evaluation and management and to nuclear database enhancements. The second day focused on instrumentation and detector systems as well as accelerator technology.

Participation was on a volunteer basis and will not affect future ANS&T application evaluations.

Proprietary aspects of ANS&T work are an important part of the ANS&T effort, and the speakers are expected to take the necessary precautions during the public sessions.

The meeting was held at the Hilton Washington DC Rockville on August 22-23, 2011. .
