The Barcelona symposium will focus on both near-term fusion devices and long-term reactor technologies.
From 16-20 September 2013, the 11th International Symposium on Fusion Nuclear Technology (ISFNT) will be held in Barcelona, Spain. The ISFNT is the international counterpart to the European SOFT and the American TOFE fusion technology conferences. The conference rotates through the different world regions—previous ISFNTs were held in Portland, US (2011), Dalian, China (2009), Heidelberg, Germany (2007) and Tokyo, Japan (2005).

The program committee is composed of members from ITER and the seven Members. The symposium focuses on both near-term fusion devices and long-term reactor technologies such as breeding blankets, neutron sources and hybrid reactors. There will also be a section devoted to inertial fusion technology.
