PhD Event on Fusion Science and Technology

The PhD Event for European PhD Students in Fusion Science and Technology will take place at IPP Garching, Germany, on October 13 and 14, 2011.

PhD Event IPP Garching

The aim of the event is to bring together EU PhD students in Fusion Science and Technology to discuss their work, but also to attend lectures of broader interest and to get to know each other.

Workshop on Electrical Probes in Magnetized Plasmas

The 9th International Workshop on Electrical Probes in Magnetized Plasmas (IWEP2011) is a three-day workshop (oral presentations and poster sessions) focused on a wide spectrum of probe problems in magnetized and non-magnetized plasmas.


The workshop topics are:

Summer School on Plasma diagnostics by electrical probes and lasers

This summer school course will acquaint master students with the basic experimental and theoretical aspects of plasma diagnostics by electrical probes (single, double, triple and thermo emissive probes) and laser (laser absorption and laser induced fluorescence).

During the first three days, the students will have possibility to perform experiments, process the experimental data offline and discuss the results. Last three days will be dedicated to lectures that will discuss fundamental aspects of electrical probe and laser diagnostics methods.

Fusenet appears in The Parliament

An article on Fusenet has been published in The Parliament, an established magazine published by Dods Parliamentary Communications, that provides EU political news and information. The magazine can also be read on the similarly named Brussels-based website, theparliament.com. The Parliament is known for its analysis of key issues and debates within the EU institutions, and is therefore well read by European policy makers.

Fusenet appears on page 46 of issue 326 of the Parliament:

Teaching Award for Fusion Group at the University of York

The Plasma Physics and Fusion Group at the University of York has been recognised with a team Vice Chancellor's Teaching Award for its two postgraduate training programmes: the Fusion Doctoral Training Network and the Fusion Energy MSc.

9th Summer School SUMTRAIC 2011 - Experimental Work on Tokamaks

The 9th Summer Training Course SUMTRAIC will take place at the COMPASS tokamak in Prague from August, 22nd till September, 2nd 2011. This experimental school is hold jointly by the Institute of Plasma Physics of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, the Association EURATOM/IPP.CR, the KFKI Research Institute for Particle and Nuclear Physics of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences (RMKI) and the Association EURATOM/HAS.

Fusion Frontiers and Interfaces workshop

A postgraduate workshop exploring the frontiers of fusion research and the interfaces with related disciplines through presentations and discussion. Speakers include world-renowned experts in the fields of magnetic and inertial confinement fusion, space plasmas and materials.

The workshop will be held at the University of York, and is an opportunity for postgraduate students and post-doctoral researchers to interact with leading researchers from government laboratories, academia and industry, to learn about closely related fields, and to explore future career options.

48th Culham Plasma Physics Summer School

The 48th Culham Plasma Physics Summer School will be held from 11th July - 22nd July 2011.

This school is the 48th in the series organized at Culham Science Centre, near Oxford. No preceding knowledge of plasma physics is assumed.

5th ITER International Summer School

The 5th ITER International Summer School on MHD and Energetic Particles takes place in Cadarache from June 20 to June 24, 2011. This school aims at preparing young researchers to tackle the current and anticipated challenges at magnetic fusion devices, and spreading the global knowledge required for a timely and competent exploitation of the ITER physics potential.

Carolus Magnus Summer School on Plasma and Fusion Energy Physics

The 10th edition of the Carolus Magnus Summer School on Plasma and Fusion Energy Physics will be held in Weert, the Netherlands, from Sept 05-16, 2011.

This summer school is devoted to the theoretical and experimental aspects of high temperature plasmas confined in magnetic devices and is relevant to controlled fusion energy production.
