PSA 2015

Thanks to all who participated in PSA 2015 and helped make it a great conference.
PSA 2015, the International Topical Meeting on Probabilistic Safety Assessment and Analysis, will take place Sunday April 26 through Thursday, April 30, 2015, at the Sun Valley Resort in Sun Valley, Idaho, USA.

PSA 2015 has been a major international technical forum for communication of major probabilistic risk and safety information since Professor David Okrent (1922-2012) organized the first of this series in 1978 in Newport Beach, California. This international conference, now conducted on a biennial basis, includes paper and panel sessions on issues, methods, applications, insights, policy and regulation, and is the fourteenth meeting in the technical series sponsored by the American Nuclear Society (ANS) and its Nuclear Installations Safety Division (NISD).

In keeping with the theme of "A Forum for Learning", PSA 2015 will prominently feature discussion group sessions on major issues. Led by a moderator, each session will feature a small group of experts freely discussing the issues amongst themselves with the audience eavesdropping on the conversation. Scattered througout the conference will be tutorial sessions on key subjects of current interest. On Sunday, April 26, there will be a number of full-day and half-day workshops.

PSA 2015 will be of interest to traditional applications including nuclear reactor facilities, nonreactor installations, processing, decontamination & decommissioning, and storage, as well as other non-traditional areas where probabilistic safety approaches are applied. The meeting will continue to follow lessons learned and impacts to PRA from the Fukushima Dai-ichi, explore progress on risk-informing regulation, provide status on the development of PRA standards, as well as many other topics during four days of planned paper and panel sessions.

Over 300 attendees are expected and leading industry technical service and product providers are providing sponsorships to various conference functions.
