Participants were asked to categorize their presentations by the areas of configuration improvement (magnetic fusion and inertial fusion) and/or the areas of plasma science, which can be addressed by small plasma experiments. Of course, any improvement must be achieved while maintaining adequate confinement.
Abstracts were submitted via the website by Monday, December 18, 2006. The submission designated one or two of the areas of interest (A1 through E10) that were mainly addressed by the paper (A1, A2, A3, etc.). Authors whose papers were selected for oral presentations were notified mid-January 2007. Contributed papers not selected for oral presentation were presented as posters.
