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.
Visit http://www.ifsa17.org/and join if you are interested.

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 were due December 15, 2016 for further information please contact kikuchi.mitsuru@qst.go.jp

The 70th Annual Gaseous Electronics Conference, November 6-10, 2017 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Pittsburgh - Green Tree, 500 Mansfield Ave, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 15205 USA.

Second IAEA Technical Meeting on Divertor Concepts, Suzhou, China | 13–16 November 2017
INTRODUCTION
The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) will organize the Second Technical Meeting on Divertor Concepts from 13 to 16 November 2017 in Suzhou, China. A previous meeting on this topic was held at the IAEA’s  headquarters in Vienna, Austria, in 2015.
OBJECTIVES
The purpose of the meeting is to provide a forum for discussing open questions related to the physics and technology of conventional and alternative divertors that could be used to control plasma–wall interaction, while providing optimal conditions for the performance of a fusion reactor core. The meeting will aim at fostering, in particular, discussions of the state of the art and solutions for different plasma power exhaust problems.
TOPICS
The meeting will cover the following topics:
1. Divertors and confinement
2. Radiative power exhaust
3. Scrape-off layer and divertor physics
4. Steady state operation and transient heat loads
5. Plasma-facing component materials and heat exhaust for steady state operation
6. Divertors for the demonstration fusion power plant (DEMO) and fusion reactors
Deadlines:
4 September 2017: Deadline for submission of abstracts
8 September 2017:  Deadline for submission of the Participation Form  - please send forms A and B to

The joint meeting of 26th International Toki  Conference (ITC-26) and 11th Asia Plasma and Fusion Association (APFA) Conference, December 5-8, 2017, Ceratopia Toki, Toki City, Gifu, Japan. The conference web page is (http://itc.nifs.ac.jp/).

The International Toki Conference is a topical meeting dedicated to a specific subject related to plasma and fusion science. The series began in 1989 with the founding of the National Institute for Fusion Science and has been held on an annual basis ever since. The Asia Plasma and Fusion Association (APFA) was organized by the academic societies and research laboratories related to plasma and nuclear fusion research in Japan, China, South Korea, and India. A biennial conference has been held since 1998 to exchange information on mutual scientific interests, to strengthen friendships, to promote education of young scientists and engineers, and to contribute to the development of plasma science and fusion engineering.
In recent years, several new experiments have started, and construction of new devices is going forward around the world. In particular, research activities in Asian countries are advancing. With this background, we are planning the joint conference between the 26th International Toki Conference and the 11th APFA conference to explore the new era in plasma and fusion research.
Topics: 
Magnetically confined fusion research
Theory and simulation research
Laser plasma research
Fusion engineering and technology development
Reactor perspectives
Plasma applications
