"Practice to oblivion!" -- tips from 2018 Pecha Kucha winner, Ana Kostic

On International Pecha Kucha Day, we are excited to announce that the upcoming FuseNet PhD Event will host no less than 50 Pecha Kucha presentations by doctoral students on their research topic in fusion! But what makes for a successful pitch? How can you ensure your message is understood when you only have so little time to tell it? How do you even start? The winner of previous edition, Ana Kostic, shares some valuable tips to presenters.

Joint Varenna-Lausanne International Workshop on Theory of Fusion Plasmas

The biennial joint Varenna-Lausanne international workshop on the Theory of Fusion Plasmas will be held in Varenna, Italy, from 24 to 28 August 2020. Topics include anomalous transport, RF heating and current drive, non-axisymmetric configurations, macroinstabilities and magnetic reconnections, plasma-edge physics and divertors, and burning plasmas. PhD student can apply at a reduced fee.

FuseNet PhD Event - Padova

The upcoming FuseNet PhD Event is from 3rd to 6th March 2020 in Padova (Italy). This is a conference that is dedicated for doctoral students to present their work, interact with each other and thus lay a basis for future collaborations. This edition is organised in collaboration with the University of Padova and Consorzio RFX. The programme and the venues are highly recommended. Food and hotel during the event are covered, travel would require a EUROfusion mission approval.

Control and operation of tokamaks

The doctoral-level course on Control and operation of tokamaks, organised by the EPFL's Swiss Plasma Centre and supported by FuseNet, allows PhD and Master's students to become familiar with the key issues in plasma control and operations. They will become acquainted with techniques for modeling the dynamical behavior of tokamaks and for design of control algorithms. During the course, students will do exercises using discharge preparation programs, equilibrium reconstruction codes, and control-oriented plasma models used in the tokamak community, in particular on the TCV tokamak.

Plasma diagnostics in basic plasma physics devices and tokamaks: from principles to practice

The doctoral-level course on Plasma diagnostics in basic plasma physics devices and tokamaks: from principles to practice, organised by the EPFL's Swiss Plasma Centre and supported by FuseNet, provides the theoretical background on electrostatic probes, magnetic probes and fast imaging in plasmas. Each lesson will be followed by class exercise and experimental practica on both the TCV tokamak and the TORPEX basic plasma physics device.

29th Symposium on Plasma Physics and Technology (SPPT2020)

The Symposium on Plasma Physics and Technology has a long tradition and is usually held biennially. This will be the 29th Symposium. It was originally founded for the presentation of results of the Institute of Plasma Physics of the Czechoslovak Academy of Sciences (IPP CAS) in 1967. Since 1969 it has gradually become a Czechoslovak forum in this branch and many famous foreign scientists have made presentations. Since 1993 it has been held in co-operation with the Department of Physics, Faculty of Electrical Engineering of the Czech Technical University (FEE CTU) in Prague.

8th International Workshop & Summer School on Plasma Physics (IWSSPP 2020)

The 8th International Workshop & Summer School on Plasma Physics (IWSSPP) 2020 would bring together leading researchers in the field of Plasma Physics to give lecture on their specialties to advanced graduate students, postgraduate students and young scientists in the form of a one-week intensive course.

47th European Physical Society Conference on Plasma Physics (EPS2020)

This annual conference with a long tradition is organized by the Plasma Physics Division of the European Physical Society (EPS). It covers the wide field of plasma physics ranging from nuclear fusion to low temperature, astrophysical and laser plasmas.

Registration open for the PhD Event Padova, 3-6 March 2020

Doctoral students, reserve your seat for this networking event in the old university town and with visits to Consorzio RFX.

2020 SOFT Innovation Prize - apply before 5th March

Apply now for the 2020 SOFT Innovation Prize! Building on the success of SOFT Innovation Prize in 2014, 2016 and 2018, the European Commission launches today the fourth edition of the SOFT Innovation Prize under Euratom Work Programme 2019-20. The prize contest is open to the world and invites international fusion researchers from all ITER partner countries and any third country, which has a bilateral fusion cooperation with Euratom. It sets no specific category, but is rather interested in any physics or technology innovation related to fusion with a potential for further exploitation. Prizes will be awarded at the 31st Symposium on Fusion Technology (SOFT2020) in Dubrovnik, Croatia, held between September 20th and 25th.
