22nd PSI – International Conference on Plasma Surface Interactions in Controlled Fusion Devices

The conference is organized by ENEA, the Italian National Agency for New Technologies, Energy and Sustainable Economic Development and will be held from May 30 to June 3, 2016 in Rome, Italy.
Is not necessary to remind you the great beauty of Rome: it is a very attractive city, well known all over the world, and late spring is the best period to visit it. Let me only say that Rome represents also one of the most important scientific poles of Italy: close to Rome (20 km) is the Frascati Research area including, besides ENEA, the National Institute of Nuclear Physics (INFN) and the European Space Agency (ESA).

Topics of the PSI Conference:

◊ Physics processes at the plasma-material interface
◊ Material erosion, migration, mixing, and dust formation
◊ Plasma fuelling, particle exhaust and control, tritium retention
◊ Wall conditioning and tritium removal techniques
◊ Impurity sources, transport and control
◊ Edge and divertor plasma physics
◊ Power exhaust, plasma detachment, and heat load control
◊ Far SOL transport and main chamber plasma-wall interaction
◊ Plasma edge and first wall diagnostics
◊ Plasma exhaust and plasma-material interaction for fusion reactors

The satellite meeting “International Workshop on Hydrogen Isotopes in Fusion Reactor materials” will be organised by IFP-CNR (Istituto di Fisica del Plasma – Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche) in Milano.
