57th Culham Plasma Physics Summer School
20 Jul 2020 - 31 Jul 2020 • Culham, United Kingdom
Abstract:
The Summer School is intended to give the students an introduction to the fundamentals of plasma physics together with an appreciation of how these are related to applications such as Magnetic Confinement Fusion, Laser Plasma and Inertial Confinement Fusion, Low Temperature Plasma and Astrophysical Plasmas. Specific topics in these fields are also treated in depth.

EU-US TTF — 25th joint EU-US Transport Task Force Meeting
08 Sep 2020 - 11 Sep 2020 • York, United Kingdom
Organizer:
Department of Physics, University of York
Abstract:
The European TTF continues to act as a framework for topical discussions on transport, and provides the natural connection with the US TTF and the Asia-Pacific Transport Working Group. This conference aims to strengthen collaboration and communication within the transport community, particularly between experimental and theoretical experts, scientists who focus on different regions within fusion plasmas, and between the tokamak, reversed field pinch, and stellarator communities. To this end, having ample time for questions and answers as well as dedicated discussion time are at the core of the European TTF meeting. Moreover, the European TTF is committed to fostering the education and careers of young fusion scientists. For this reason, contributions from PhD students and post docs are particularly welcome.
Topics:
Ion and electron thermal transport • Fast ion transport and impact on confinement • Particle and impurity transport • Momentum transport and intrinsic rotation • The physics of the L-H and H-L transitions • Turbulence and transport in the pedestal and ITBs • Transport processes in the scrape off layer • 3-D equilibrium effects on transport

Modeling, observing, and understanding flows and magnetic fields in the Earth's core and in the Sun
30 Nov 2020 - 04 Dec 2020 • Isaac Newton Institute, Cambridge, United Kingdom
Organizer:
INI – Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences
Abstract:
Like many other stars and planets, the Earth and the Sun possess magnetic fields built by dynamo action. Unlike the magnetism of most other astrophysical objects, though, the Solar and terrestrial fields have been closely studied for generations, yielding a wide variety of observational constraints that continue to challenge theory and defy prediction. Both analytical theory and numerical simulations have cumulatively yielded significant insight into how both objects build their magnetism, but a comprehensive understanding of this process has remained elusive. This meeting will aim to scrutinise and assess the results of such modelling efforts by comparison to the vast and ongoing array of observations of both the Earth and the Sun.
