The Decommissioning and Environmental Sciences Division (DESD),  along with
the Robotics and Remote Systems Division (RRSD), is hosting a
Decommissioning and Remote Systems (D&RS) Joint Topical Meeting at the
Sheraton Station Square in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. In addition to
academic contributions, the D&RS 2016 topical meeting is anticipated to
draw over 300 professionals from the decommissioning, environmental and
remote systems industries. The ANS Topical D&RS Meeting is a forum for the
discussion of the social, regulatory, scientific, and technical aspects of
decontamination, decommissioning, and re-utilization, and waste management.
The Robotics & Remote Systems Division is interested the exchange of
knowledge between academics and robotic end-users in nuclear and hazardous
environments on the such topics as:

Advanced Manufacturing
Site applications: Fukushima, etc.
Construction Systems
Education and Robotics
Emergency Response and Explosive Disposal Robotics
Glovebox Automation
Human Factors Applied to Telerobotics and Teleoperators
Humanoid Robotics for Hazardous Environments
Intelligent and Autonomous Robotics
International Standards for Telerobotics
Radiation Detection Platforms
Remote Handling & Sampling
Remote Sensing and Robotic Platforms
Remote Tools and Processes
Robot and Teleoperator Dynamics and Control
Robotic D & D
Safeguards and Security Topics
Surveillance Systems
Underwater Remote Systems
Unmanned Aerial Vehicles
Vision Systems

Papers must present work that is new, significant and relevant to the
nuclear decommissioning and remote systems industry. Papers are required to
use the ANS template and are limited to 5 pages.
