The American Nuclear Society (ANS) is pleased to host the 22nd Pacific Basin Nuclear Conference (PBNC) and Technology Exhibition under the auspices of the Pacific Nuclear Council. The conference will be held April 26th—30th, 2020 at the Marriott Cancun Resort in Cancun, Mexico.

This international conference is a broad-based meeting focused on areas of nuclear energy, engineering and science, and policy issues that accompany nuclear energy programs throughout the Pacific Rim. The meeting is sponsored by the Pacific Nuclear Council and ANS.

The first meeting was held in 1976 in Honolulu, Hawaii, USA. Subsequent meetings have been held about every two years under the joint sponsorship of the Pacific Nuclear Council (PNC) and a sponsoring PNC Member Society. The conferences have played a vital role in providing fora for discussion and information relating to both research and development and to the implementation of nuclear energy technology in the Pacific Basin.
