The ANS Reactor Physics Topical Meeting is returning to Japan after 18 years. It will be held in Kyoto, which is one of the most historical and beautiful cities in Japan. The technical program will meet the high standards of recent PHYSOR meetings [Interlaken 2008, Pittsburgh 2010 and Knoxville 2012], including timely and relevant special topics. Students will be actively involved in all technical events and activities. Exciting workshops and technical tours will be also offered.
