IAEA Technical Meeting on Uncertainty Assessment and Benchmark Experiments for Atomic and Molecular Data for Fusion Applications
ID
828639
Dates
19 Dec 2016 - 21 Dec 2016
Location
Vienna, Austria
Abstract
The meeting is meant to advance data-oriented research on atomic and molecular (A+M) processes and properties that are important for plasma simulations and plasma diagnostics for fusion energy development and other plasma applications. Leading theoretical and experimental A+M physicists are invited along with plasma physicists using A+M data to discuss uncertainty assessments and benchmark experiments for A+M data for fusion and other plasma applications. The discussion topics include prioritization of A+M data needs for fusion applications, experimental methods and systems to benchmark theoretical A+M collision data, target uncertainties of A+M collision data for fusion applications, uncertainty quantification methods for theoretical A+M data, and development of a network of A+M physicists doing benchmark experiments and computations. Among other things the meeting will identify the most important data needs for fusion applications, decide what can be done to benchmark those data, and formulate a plan of action among experimental and theoretical A+M physicists to carry out this benchmarking and perform the associated uncertainty assessment. The discussions should lead to specific proposals for measurements to set new benchmarks for prioritized data and proposals about suitable theoretical methods to compute these data.
Topics
electron-atom collisions, electron-molecule collisions, atomic collisions, cross sections, uncertainty quantification, atomic processes in plasmas.

SPPT — 28. symposium on plasma physics and technology
ID
820452
Dates
18 Jun 2018 - 21 Jun 2018
Location
Prague, Czech Republic
Abstract
The Symposium on Plasma Physics and Technology has a long tradition and is usually held biennially. This will be the 28th Symposium. It was originally founded for the presentation of results of the Institute of Plasma Physics of the Czechoslovak Academy of Sciences (IPP CAS) in 1967. Since 1969 it has gradually become a Czechoslovak forum in this branch and many famous foreign scientists have made presentations. Since 1993 it has been held in co-operation with the Department of Physics, Faculty of Electrical Engineering of the Czech Technical University (FEE CTU) in Prague. Last symposia were granted the label European Physical Society Sponsored Conference.

Since 2000 the SPPT participants had the possibility to offer their original papers based on the SPPT contributions for publication in various journals (Czechoslovak Journal of Physics, European Physical Journal D, Acta Technica), since 2012 Acta Polytechnica and Plasma Physics and Technology.

The symposium is of the European importance. There will be about 150-200 participants.
