February 23-26

Log in


Deadline: Tuesday, January 5, 2016

Submit a new abstract for the EPR 2016 workshop.

If you are interested in submitting an abstract on behalf of another person, please read these instructions.

Edit a previously submitted abstract, and for all other advanced features, please log in to the Abstract Manager.

Participants are asked to categorize their presentations by the areas of configuration improvement and/or the areas of plasma science, which can be addressed by exploratory plasma research. Of course, any improvement must be achieved while maintaining adequate confinement.

Abstracts must be submitted via the website by Tuesday, January 5, 2016. The submission should designate a category addressed in your abstract (see categories 1.0 through 4.0 below). Authors whose abstract is selected for an oral presentation will be notified by mid-January 2016. Abstracts not selected for an oral presentation will be presented as posters.

Poster board size: 48 inches wide by 36 inches tall
Poster boards are freestanding.

Submitting Your Abstract

  • Abstracts should be copied and pasted from a text (e.g., Word)  document into the text box in the online abstract submission form.
  • Abstract character count is limited to 2000 characters, which includes spaces, punctuation, references, and footnotes.

Uploading Your Abstract

After your abstract has been received and appears on the Proceedings page you have the option to upload a PDF version of your presentation.

EPR 2016 Categories

1.0 Improvements for Fusion Energy Science: This category includes ideas and configurations that reduce operational and maintenance complexity, and increase the attractiveness of a fusion reactor.
1.1. Simply connected
1.2. Higher beta
1.3. Control of plasma disruption
1.4. Plasma-boundary interactions

2.0 Validated Comparisons between Simulation and Experiment: The topic of validation and uncertainty quantification of computer simulations is becoming more important. How can we introduce error bars in the results of plasma simulations to better quantify the comparisons between simulation and experiment?

3.0 Three-Dimensional Magnetic Geometries: 3D topologies, imposed by external field coils or emerging spontaneously, are growing in importance in fusion research worldwide, and the approaching first plasma in W7-X heightens this importance. What are the important questions in 3D that can be addressed by the EPR community?

4.0 Other Exploratory Plasma Research

Audiovisual (AV) Equipment
All oral sessions will be equipped with a Mac laptop, an LCD projector and screen, a wireless microphone, and a laser pointer. A fee will be charged for any additional requested AV equipment.

Speakers are encouraged to upload (via USB flash drive) pdf versions of their talks to the workshop Mac for projection of their talks. However, as needed, connection of personal laptops should also be possible, but speakers should bring their own video adapter cables to help ensure proper connectivity. Speakers should upload and test their talks on the workshop Mac or test connecting their personal laptops well before the start of the session in which they are speaking.
