Eye witness report from SUMTRAIC 2011 in Prague, part 4

The final days of the SUMTRAIC Summer School have been very hard for most of us. We had to work long days to complete the data analysis in time.

Luckily we found some time for a goodbye party on Wednesday. Tom van Laer reports.

Fusion-DC selected as Erasmus Mundus Joint Doctorate

From a total of 140 applications, the Fusion Doctoral College was selected this month as one of the 10 Erasmus Mundus programmes for Joint Doctorates in the coming years. The Fusion Doctoral College - in short Fusion-DC - is an international Doctoral College in fusion science and engineering, intended for the training of a new generation of fusion scientists and engineers.

First European PhD Event on Fusion Science and Technology

The first PhD Event for European PhD Students in Fusion Science and Technology is announced for October 13 and 14, 2011. The first on what is intended to become a yearly event, is taking place at IPP Garching in Germany.

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.

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:
