ICC2011 is a continuation of the ICC series that met in which last met in Princeton, New Jersey in 2010, Reno, Nevada in 2008, 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. In addition to the program committee selecting invited talks, contributed papers are solicited describing experimental, theoretical, or computational work presently done in the ICC program, and papers describing new ideas for possible proposals. The contributed papers will be presented as posters, which will be displayed during the workshop. The program committee will select a subset of the contributed papers for oral presentation.

This workshop encourages presentation of results and concepts that have the potential to address issues with the mainline concepts, or to lead to a second-generation practical fusion power system, complementing and supporting the important feasibility steps of the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER), and the National Ignition Facility (NIF). The ICC experiments also complement the mainline concepts in the advancement of fusion plasma science. These experiments test the general validity of plasma physics and technology in wider parameter regimes, develop new fusion plasma physics, and cross-fertilize with other fields of plasma science.

The US-Japan Compact Torus (CT) Workshops are international collaborative workshops at which recent results from compact tori are presented. During the last 30 years, the meeting location has alternated between Japan and the U.S. The workshop 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 U.S., with the Department of Energy.
