The Exploratory Plasma Research Workshop is a continuation of the Innovative Confinement Concepts Workshop series, which last met in Fort Worth, Texas in 2013, Seattle, Washington in 2011, Princeton, New Jersey in 2010, Reno, Nevada in 2008, College Park, Maryland in 2007, Austin, Texas in 2006, and Madison, Wisconsin in 2004. The 2014 workshop will provide a forum for an exchange of ideas through presentations and discussions on the science and status of exploratory topics in fusion energy science.
In addition to presentations on research results in our community since the last workshop, the 2014 workshop will focus on a few themes to emphasize an intellectual and scientific balance of research ideas.
- Improvements for Fusion Energy Science (including better utilization of 3D magnetic fields)
- Validated Comparisons between Simulation and Experiment
- Other Exploratory Plasma Research
The 2014 workshop will feature invited talks solicited from the greater fusion energy science community on these and other topics.
Dr. Michel Laberge, General Fusion’s Founder and Chief Scientist, will be presenting.
