The 2018 Hangzhou International Stellarator Workshop (HISW2018) was successfully held on March 26-28, 2018 at the Liutong Hotel in Hangzhou. The workshop was organized by the Institute for Fusion Theory and Simulation (IFTS), Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China. This was first such stellarator meeting in China. The purpose of the workshop are 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; c) Enhance domestic and international collaboration in stellarator research.
The workshop topics include (1) Introduction to stellarator/heliotron configurations; (2)Latest theoretical and experimental results; (3) New stellarator programs in China; (4) Future direction of stellarator research; (5) Stellarator design and prospect for stellarator reactors. There were a total of 71 participants with 55 from China and 16 from abroad including Australian, Germany, Japan, Spain, and United States. There were a total of 26 talks presented in 5 sessions: I. Overview; II. Towards Chinese Stellarator Programs; III. Stellarator Design and Optimization; IV. Edge physics in stellarators and tokamaks; V. Stellarator Experiments. The workshop ended with a discussion session on future direction of stellarator programs in China and beyond.
