14th IAEA Technical Meeting on
The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) will hold the 14th IAEA Technical Meeting on Energetic Particles in Magnetic Confinement Systems from 1 to 4 September 2015 at its Headquarters in Vienna, Austria. Previous meetings in the series were held in Kiev (1989), Aspenas (1991), Trieste (1993), Princeton (1995), JET/Abingdon (1997), Naka (1999), Gohtenburg (2001), San Diego (2003), Takayama (2005), Kloster Seeon (2007), Kiev (2009), Austin (2011) and Beijing (2013).
The purpose of the meeting is to discuss the status of experimental and theoretical works on suprathermal electrons and ions in a wide variety of magnetic confinement geometries. The meeting will cover the formation and transport of energetic particles including their confinement properties and a detailed account of the location of lost energetic particle incidence on first wall components, the collective instabilities they drive, their impact on plasma properties in different operational scenarios, and energetic particles diagnostics. It will aim, in particular, at identifying open physics issues and gaps associated with energetic particles in ITER and future fusion power plants.
TopicsThe meeting will cover the following topics
Expenditure and Financial Support
The costs for the organization of the meeting are borne by the IAEA. No registration fee will be charged to participants. As a general rule, the IAEA does not pay travel and accommodation expenses for meeting participants. However, limited funds are available to help meet the cost of attendance of a few selected specialists, primarily those 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.
