5th ITER International Summer School

 (Click to view larger version...)
The University of Provence and the ITER Organization are glad to announce the 5th ITER International Summer School which will be held in Aix-en-Provence, France from 20-24 June, 2011. This school aims at preparing young researchers to tackle the challenges of magnetic fusion devices, and spreading the global knowledge required for a timely and competent exploitation of the ITER physics potential.

This year, the summer school will cover the interaction of magnetohydrodynamic instabilities with energetic particles, which is one of the key issues for the ITER reactor and burning plasmas in general. Lectures and specialized seminars will cover current developments in theory and experiments, but are also intended to give the basics of the field. Poster sessions allowing participants to show their work are planned.

Summary:

  * Topic : MHD and Energetic Particles
  * Date : 20-24 June, 2011
  * Location : Aix-en-Provence, France.
