Deadline: Friday, June 2, 2017

Submit a new abstract for the EPR 2017 workshop.

The first author is the presenting author. Submission of an abstract is taken as a representation by the submitter that he/she expects the first author to attend the conference.

To submit an abstract on behalf of another person please read these instructions.

To edit a previously submitted abstract, and for all other advanced features, please log in to the Abstract Manager. You will need your email address and your password.

Abstracts must be submitted via the website by Friday, June 2, 2017. The submission should designate a category addressed in your abstract (see categories 1.0 through 5.0 below). Authors whose abstract is selected for an oral presentation will be notified by late June 2017. Abstracts not selected for an oral presentation will be presented as posters.

Poster board size: 4 feet by 8 feet
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 abstracts have been received and appear on the Proceedings page authors have the option to upload a PDF version of their presentation.

EPR 2017 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 Three-Dimensional Magnetic Geometries: 3D topologies, imposed by external field coils or emerging spontaneously, are growing in importance in fusion research worldwide, and the recently achieved plasmas in W7-X heighten this importance. What are the important questions in 3D that can be addressed by the EPR community?

3.0 Accelerating Low-Cost Plasma Heating and Assembly:  ARPA-E's ALPHA program seeks to aid in the development of new, lower-cost, more rapid pathways to fusion power production.  Select this category if you are presenting results stemming from ALPHA program research.

4.0 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?

5.0 Other Exploratory Plasma Research

Audiovisual (AV) Equipment
All oral sessions will be equipped with a 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 laptop for projection of their talks. However, as needed, connection of personal laptops will 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 laptop or test connecting their personal laptops well before the start of the session in which they are speaking.
