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 Friday, December 4, 2009. The submission designated one or two of the areas of interest (A1 through E11) that were mainly addressed by the paper (A1, A2, A3, etc.). Authors whose papers were selected for oral presentations were notified mid-January 2010. Contributed papers not selected for oral presentation were presented as posters.
