The Exploratory Plasma and Fusion Research Workshop is a continuation of the Innovative Confinement Concepts Workshop series. The 2017 workshop will provide a forum for an exchange of ideas through presentations and discussions on the status of exploratory topics in fusion energy and plasma science.
This bi-yearly conference provides an international forum to share information and present advances and innovation on all types of ion sources. It aims to foster synergies, promote stimulating discussions, and new collaborations.
Every other year, the US or Japan hosts the Compact Toroid (CT) workshop on the alternate side of the Pacific. The objective of the workshop is to discuss equilibrium study and applications of CT and other innovative confinement concepts that share basic physics and experimental techniques with CTs. The future of compact tori will also be discussed.
