1. 11th IAEA Technical Meeting on “Control, Data Acquisition and Remote Participation for Fusion Research, Greifswald, Germany, 8 - 12 May 2017.
The main objective of this meeting is to present and discuss new developments and perspectives in the areas of control, data acquisition, data management and remote participation for nuclear fusion research around the world.
Nominations should be lodged by 6 March 2017. A part A and part B form need to be lodged to IAEA through the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation via international.liaison@ansto.gov.au
As the deadline has already passed, interested parties might wish to contact the IAEA Physics secretariat (physics@iaea.org) to explore the possibilities of late participation."

 

2. Second Technical Meeting on Fusion Data Processing, Validation and Analysis, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA, 30 May - 2 June 2017.
The purpose of the meeting is to provide a platform for discussion of a set of topics relevant to fusion data processing, validation and analysis with a view to extrapolating needs in these areas to next-step fusion devices such as ITER (International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor). The validation and analysis of experimental data obtained from diagnostics used to characterize fusion plasmas is crucial for a knowledge based understanding of the physical processes governing the dynamics of these plasmas. The meeting will aim at fostering, in particular, discussions about research and development results that set out or underline trends observed in the current major fusion confinement devices.
Nominations should be lodged by 31 March 2017

4. The 8th IAEA Technical Meeting on “Theory of Plasma Instabilities", Vienna, Austria, 12 - 14 June 2017
The 8th IAEA-TM on “Theory of Plasma Instabilities” will provide a forum for open discussions on theoretical and computational physics issues relevant to burning plasmas. The meeting will cover linear and non-linear theory and simulation of plasma instabilities, including core/edge turbulence, magneto-hydrodynamic (MHD) processes, and energetic particle driven dynamics and their effects on plasma confinement. Special attention will be paid to multi-scale interaction dynamics in better understanding burning plasmas and to the modelling of such complex physical processes.
Abstract deadline extended to 14 April 2017. Abstract submission by email to physics@iaea.org
A part A and part B form need to be lodged to IAEA through the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation via international.liaison@ansto.gov.au. If the deadline has already passed, interested parties might wish to contact the IAEA Physics secretariat (physics@iaea.org) to explore the possibilities of late participation."

 

5. The 44th annual European Physical Society Conference on Plasma Physics, Belfast, Northern Ireland,26-30 June 2017. Please find more information on our website:https://www.qub.ac.uk/sites/eps2017/ 

 

6. Inertial Fusion Sciences and Applications (IFSA2017), Saint-Malo, France, September 11-15, 2017
The goal of IFSA2017 is to bring together scientists and engineers in the fields of inertial fusion sciences and high-energy-density physics, of their applications and of the all the required technologies.

7. 1st Asia-Pacific Conference on Plasma Physics (AAPPS-DPP2017), Chengdu city, China, September 18-22, 2017,
This conference will be the general plasma physics conference in Asia-Pacific region, similar to the APS-DPP and EPS-DPP conferences on plasma physics. AAPPS-DPP2017 is a plasma physics conference under the authority of AAPPS-DPP for scientific discussions on plasma physics. This conference should be physics oriented and provide interdisciplinary and in-depth discussions among and in various fields of plasma physics and application.
Nominations for plenary and invited talks are due December 15, 2016 and should be sent to kikuchi.mitsuru@qst.go.jp
