The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) will have a dedicated session at the 2016 ANS Winter Meeting and Nuclear Technology Expo in Las Vegas, Nevada, this November for the Nuclear Energy University Program (NEUP). This session will provide students an opportunity to present a summary of work performed under NEUP-funded research.
We would like to invite students working on an active NEUP project to submit a 1-4 page summary. All summaries received will go through an internal review where finalists will be selected and submitted to the ANS transaction website for consideration.
Summaries are due prior to June 10, 2016, at 11:59 pm ET.
Students can submit summaries at https://secureportal.inl.gov/caesproposal/Proposal/Proposals.aspx.
Guidance on summary formatting can be found at the following: http://cdn.ans.org/pubs/transactions/docs/guidelines.pdf.

DOE is seeking information, comments, feedback, and recommendations from interested parties for future work scope areas for the major NE-funded research programs in the following R&D areas:
- Fuel Cycle Research and Development (FC R&D) Program
- Reactor Concepts Research, Development and Demonstration (RC RD&D) Program
- Nuclear Energy Advanced Modeling and Simulation (NEAMS) Program
- Nuclear Enabling Technologies (NEET) Crosscutting Technology Development (CTD).
DOE is also seeking information, comments, feedback, and recommendations from interested parties to determine what capabilities that support research, training and technology demonstration, are of high interest to the nuclear research community. In addition to receiving feedback on the aforementioned capabilities, DOE seeks input on other high priority nuclear energy-related infrastructure needs, including information on the potential benefit, location, funding model, and feasibility of establishing, maintaining, and operating such facilities.
Responses must be received by Thursday, May 13, 2016, to be considered for FY 2017 workscopes.
