The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) fosters the exchange of scientific and technical results in nuclear fusion research and development through its series of Fusion Energy Conferences. The 27th IAEA Fusion Energy Conference (FEC 2018) aims to provide a forum for the discussion of key physics and technology issues as well as innovative concepts of direct relevance to the use of nuclear fusion as a source of energy.
The results of research and development efforts in both national and international fusion experiments will be presented in order to help in pinpointing worldwide advances in fusion theory, experiments, technology, engineering, safety and socio-economics. Furthermore, the conference will also set these results against the backdrop of the requirements for a net energy producing fusion device and a fusion power plant in general, and will thus help in defining the way forward.
The conference will address the following topics:
- Magnetic Confinement Experiments
- Magnetic Confinement Theory and Modelling
- Plasma Overall Performance and Control
- Inertial Fusion Experiments and Theory
- Innovative Confinement Concepts
- Fusion Engineering, Integration and Power Plant Design
- Fusion Nuclear Physics and Technology - MPT Materials Physics and Technology
- Safety, Environmental and Economic Aspects of Fusion
In order to participate the applicant has to be designated by an IAEA Member State or be a member of organizations that have been invited to attend.
Registration deadline (for paper submission): 29 March 2018
The 27th IAEA Fusion Energy Conference is organized by the IAEA in cooperation with the Institute for Plasma Research, India.
