The MIT Plasma Science and Fusion Center will organize the Sherwood 2017 from May 1st-3rd, 2017, in Annapolis, MD USA.


About the conference

The goal of controlled thermonuclear fusion research is to develop a safe, environmentally benign, and essentially inexhaustible source of energy for the future. Papers are solicited on the following topics for the International Sherwood Fusion Theory Conference:

  • Plasma Properties, Equilibrium, Stability, and Transport
  • Physics of Plasma Edge and Divertor Region
  • Plasma Production and Heating
  • Computer Simulation of Plasmas

The Annual Conference is organized for educational and scientific purposes.
