Second ANNOUNCEMENT of The Hangzhou International Stellarator Workshop (HISW2018), March 26-28, 2018, Hangzhou, China
The Hangzhou International Stellarator Workshop will be held in Hangzhou, China from March 26th, Monday to March 28th, Wednesday, in 2018. The workshop is being organized by Institute for Fusion Theory and Simulation (IFTS), Zhejiang University.
This is first such stellarator meeting in China. Currently significant programs of stellarator research are being initiated in China. The University of South China is importing H1-N stellarator from Australian National University. The Southwest Jiaotong University in Chengdu is planning construction of a new quasi-symmetric stellarator. Zhejiang University in Hangzhou has started a stellarator theory program aiming for design and building of a new innovative stellarator. To help with all the initiatives, we are organizing a 3-day international workshop on stellarator/heliotron during March 26-28, 2018. The location will be in the city of Hangzhou where Zhejiang University is located. Hangzhou is well known for her scenic attractions and is only one hour away from Shanghai by high-speed trains. The purpose of the workshop is two folds: a) Provide a platform for discussion of current research and future direction of stellarator/heliotron both within China and abroad; b) Introduce stellarator physics and design to interested researchers in China.
Topics of the workshop will include:
Introduction to stellarator/heliotron configurations;
Latest theoretical and experimental results;
New stellarator programs in China;
Future direction of stellarator research;
Stellarator design and prospect for stellarator reactors.
