5 – 7 July 2005

Vienna, Austria


Author Instructions

Meeting Coordinates


Evening Session



Following recommendation from the International Fusion Research Council, the IAEA will organise a series of Technical Meetings (TM's) on the subject of fusion power plants aiming at outline general guidance and recommendations on issues related to the design and technology of first generation fusion power plants, their social, economic, safety and environmental implications.


The present TM series will look in an integrated way at all the aspects that are anticipated to become relevant within the next two generations, when a first power plant prototype is expected to be in operation leading to the first generation of commercial power plants with attractive safety and environmental features and viable economics. In addition to electricity generation, the generation of mobile power (e.g. hydrogen) will be considered. The requirements arising for fusion development (including plasma physics, materials and human resources) will also be addressed.

It is expected that during these meetings the major areas of relevance will have been identified and assessed and some recommendations and guidelines could be assembled to inform the direction of future research and development activities


- (PPCA) Fusion power plant concepts and systems analysis.

- (M&R) Maintenance, reliability and availability.

- (CD) Component design and analysis.

- (MP) Materials and plasma requirements.

- (ME) Mobile energy production

- (SESE) Social, economic, safety and environmental aspects


The meeting will have invited and contributed oral papers presented in sessions devoted to special topics with subsequent discussions. It is expected that invited talks, as keynotes for the session, will be 40 minutes plus 10 minutes discussion and session talks will be ~20 minutes with ~5 minutes for discussion. An overhead projector for transparencies and an electronic projector with a computer capable of reading CD's and memory sticks will be available (Power Point recommended).

The official language of the meeting is English (no interpretation will be provided). It is expected that the meeting will start at 09:00 on 5 July 2005 and end by 17:45 on 7 July 2005. A short summary of the meeting, including recommendations, will be written and approved during the last session (1,30 H).

Authors must submit a signed Form B to the IAEA for copyright proposes.

Electronic versions of papers will be collected at the meeting.

A summary report of the meeting will be prepared for submission to the “Nuclear Fusion” journal.

Authors are encouraged to submit their papers to Fusion Engineering and Design.


About 40 persons from IAEA Member States or international organizations are expected to attend. Participants should be persons actively involved in the topics of the meeting.

In order to participate in the meeting, these major steps must be completed:

1) Abstract Submission

A one page abstract must be submitted between 1 March and 31 March 2005. The abstract may be text only or contain figures and graphics, but must be only one page. The abstract must contain the authors' names, affiliation and email address. Please include the meeting title in the subject line. Acceptable file formats are Microsoft Word (preferred) or PDF. The filename should be in the following format: "lastname-firstname.filetype".

Submit the abstract by email to or by post or fax to the IAEA Scientific Secretary,

The authors must make sure that the files do not include copyrighted fonts or other impediments for reproduction.

The abstracts will be selected and classified by the International Advisory Committee.

Authors will be informed of the acceptance and placement of their contributions by email, by 22 of April 2005.


2) IAEA participation and copyright forms.

A participant will be accepted only if the Participation Form A is transmitted through the appropriate Governmental representative authority (Ministry of Foreign Affairs, National Atomic Energy Authority).

You also need to send a completed Author Form B with the abstract of your presentation to the IAEA.


The costs for the organization of the meeting are borne by the host organization and the IAEA. No registration fee will be charged to participants.

As a general rule, the IAEA does not pay the cost for attendance to the meeting (i.e. travel and living expenses) of participants. However, limited funds are available to help meet the cost of attendance and participation of a few selected specialists mainly from developing countries with low economic resources. Generally, not more than one grant will be awarded to any one country. The grants awarded will be in the form of lump sums usually covering part of the cost of attendance.

If governments wish to apply for a grant on behalf of one of their specialists, they should address specific requests to the IAEA Scientific Secretary at the International Atomic Energy Agency to this effect. Governments should ensure that applications for grants:

a) are received by the IAEA before end of March 2005

b) are accompanied by a duly completed and signed Grant Form C and an estimate of a valid travel agent of the flight costs from/to the duty city in their country and Vienna.

Applications that do not comply with the conditions mentioned above cannot be considered.

Awards will be announced around 30 April 2005.



Designated participants who require a visa to enter Austria should submit the necessary application to the nearest diplomatic or consular representative of Austria as soon as possible. A letter of invitation, if needed, has to be requested from the Secretariat in the Physics Section,
