30 June 2022 Deadline for submission of abstracts through IAEA-INDICO for regular contributions

30 June 2022 Deadline for submission of Participation Form (Form A), and Grant Application Form (Form C) (if applicable) through the official channels

29 July 2022 Notification of acceptance of abstracts and of assigned awards

It is expected that first generation fusion power plants will use a mixture of two heavy isotopes of hydrogen — deuterium and tritium (DT) — as fuel, which then fuse to produce helium and neutrons. Inside the reactor, additional tritium will be ‘bred’ or created from the reaction of the neutrons with a lithium blanket covering the inner side of the reactor vessel. However, several uncertainties remain regarding the physics and technology of the DT fuel cycle in ITER and demonstration fusion power plants


The event aims to review and discuss – in an integrated manner – plasma physics and technology aspects of the tritium fuel cycle in magnetic fusion reactors, from ITER to demonstration fusion power plants.

Target Audience

The event aims to bring together technical representatives from a wide range of fusion specialties including core plasma physics, plasma material interactions, edge plasma (scrape-off layer) physics, materials science, plasma component design, vacuum systems, tritium behaviour, and tritium processing.
