The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) fosters the exchange of scientific and technical results in nuclear fusion research and development through its series of Technical Meetings and workshops.

The Third Technical Meeting on Divertor Concepts (DC 2019) aims to provide a forum for discussing and analyzing the latest findings and open issues related to the divertor of a fusion device in the context of DEMO.

The event will focus on an integral approach, i.e. connecting plasma physics and engineering aspects, and aim at an intensive exchange of ideas on the different aspects that the divertor design and fusion machine operation involve, from ITER divertor developments to innovative technologies for DEMO divertor.

The DC 2019 is being organized by the IAEA. Previous meetings in this series were held in Vienna, Austria (2015) and Suzhou, China (2017).

A very first Technical Meeting on Divertor Concepts was held in Aix-en-Provence from 11-14 September 2001. Click here to access the Special Issue published on Plasma Physics and Controlled Fusion.

The event will be held at the Vienna International Centre (VIC) where the IAEA’s Headquarters are located. Participants must make their own travel and accommodation arrangements.

General information on the VIC and other practical details, such as a list of hotels offering a reduced rate for IAEA participants, are listed on the following IAEA web page:

Participants are advised to arrive at Checkpoint 1/Gate 1 of the VIC one hour before the start of the event on the first day in order to allow for timely registration. Participants will need to present an official photo identification document in order to be admitted to the VIC premises.

Participants who require a visa to enter Austria should submit the necessary application to the nearest diplomatic or consular representative of Austria at least four weeks before they travel to Austria. Since Austria is a Schengen State, persons requiring a visa will have to apply for a Schengen visa. In States where Austria has no diplomatic mission, visas can be obtained from the consular authority of a Schengen Partner State representing Austria in the country in question.
