2011 ANS Special Award announced

Happy Thanksgiving! The topic for the American Nuclear Society’s Special Award in 2011 is “Innovations in Small Modular Reactors.”

The Special Award was established in 1962 by ANS to recognize individuals for meritorious contributions in research and/or developing understanding into the important areas of the selected topic. A different topic is chosen each year by the ANS Board of Directors based on recommendations from the society’s Honors and Awards Committee. Each topic is selected based on its importance to the peaceful applications of nuclear technology to mankind.

The award is intended to go to an individual, or individuals, rather than to a large group or institution. The candidate/s for the award should have played an outstanding role in the necessary research and analysis and/or in the interpretation and leadership associated with furthering the overall understanding of the topic. Nominees must be living, but need not be ANS members.

Nomination forms are available at the ANS Web site or from ANS Headquarters. Eight copies of the completed form and supporting materials must be received at ANS headquarters before April 1, 2011.

Plaques and a monetary award totaling $1000 will be presented to a winning individual or team at an ANS Annual Meeting in 2011.
