ITER represented at major fusion gathering

And they're off. Fusioneers are gathering this week in Oxford (United Kingdom) for the 30th IEEE Symposium on Fusion Engineering (SOFE). More than 700 delegates from 26 countriesincluding a group of 20 from the ITER Projectare discussing what steps at the forefront of science, engineering, and technology are necessary to make fusion energy a reality.

It's only the second time that IEEE's SOFE is taking place outside of the United States and, according to the organizers, the event has had the highest number of registrations since 1979.

Speaking ahead of today's opening ceremony, Heather Lewtas, chair of the event and UKAEA's Head of Innovation, said, "It is an extremely exciting time for fusion energy in the UK and internationally. SOFE 2023 provides an important platform where technical conversations between public and private fusion organizations can take place alongside the supply chain and academia. There has already been fantastic development in our field, but it will be the strength of our global community that will make fusion energy part of the world's future power supply."

In a plenary session this morning, Kathy McCarthy, director of the US ITER Project at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, gave an update on ITER achievements, challenges and path to operations.

Scientists and engineers from the ITER Project are giving a number of presentations and poster sessions during the week (see the event program here). We'll have a full report in the next ITER Newsline.
