ICC 2008 Workshop

UNR to Host ICC in Reno, Nevada

The University of Nevada, Reno will host the next Innovative Confinement Concepts (ICC) Workshop from Tuesday, June 24 through Friday, June 27, 2008. Onsite registration begins Monday, June 23 at the Eldorado Hotel.

The meeting will be held at the Joe Crowley Student Union, on the UNR Campus.

ICC2008 is a continuation of the ICC series that met in College Park, Maryland in 2007, Austin, Texas in 2006, Madison, Wisconsin in 2004, Seattle, Washington in 2003, and College Park, Maryland in 2002. It will provide a forum for an exchange of ideas through presentations and discussions on the science and status of innovative confinement concepts research, and on new ideas. This meeting provides feedback from the ICC community to DOE OFES. In addition to invited talks on these topics, contributed papers are solicited describing experimental, theoretical, or computational work presently done in the ICC program, and also papers describing new ideas for possible proposals. These papers will be presented as posters, which will be displayed during the workshop. The program committee will also select a subset of the contributed papers for oral presentation.

The ICC experiments also complement the mainline concepts in the advancement of plasma science. These experiments test the general validity of plasma physics and technology in wider parameter regimes, develop new fusion plasma physics outside the mainline, and cross-fertilize with other fields of plasma science.

The US-Japan Compact Torus (CT) Workshops are international meetings at which recent results from compact tori are presented. During the last 30 years, the meeting location has alternated between Japan and the USA. The meeting offers a forum for researchers of spheromaks, FRCs and other novel compact toroidal configurations to present experimental, computational and analytical results. In Japan, the CT workshops are organized through the Joint Institute for Fusion Theory, and here in the USA, with the U.S. Department of Energy.
