53rd Culham Plasma Physics Summer School

This school is the 53rd in the series organized at Culham Science Centre, near Oxford, from July 18-29, 2016. No preceding knowledge of plasma physics is assumed. Previous schools have attracted students from more than 50 different countries.

Lecturers for the Summer School are drawn from the Culham Centre for Fusion Energy and leading laboratories and university groups in magnetic and laser confinement fusion, space and astrophysical plasmas and low temperature plasmas from the UK and abroad.
