About the Conference

The objective of the Annual CNS Conference and the embedded Annual CNS/CNA Student Conference is to provide a forum for exchanging ideas and information related to the peaceful application and advancement of nuclear science and technology as well as for discussing energy-related issues in general. The theme of this year’s conference is “Shifting the paradigm of thought to bridge current nuclear practices with leading-edge innovation”, which reflects the global transition into a new nuclear renaissance.

The conference would facilitate collaborative discussions among various rightsholder and stakeholders to help facilitate the transition to more advanced technologies and to strengthen the importance of nuclear energy as the main driver for reaching the net zero carbon emissions by 2050.

Our Annual Conference typically draws about 400 delegates from across Canada and other nuclear jurisdictions, from both senior management and technical fields – from the private and public sectors. The conference features:

Plenary sessions

with invited speakers to address significant industry developments

An embedded Symposium

on Small Modular Reactors addressing all aspects of this emerging technology.

Technical sessions

with subject-matter experts from utilities, suppliers, the regulators, academia, federal laboratories, and agencies to present the latest advancements in nuclear science and technology.
