The validation and analysis of experimental data obtained from diagnostics used to characterize fusion plasmas are crucial for a knowledge-based understanding of the physical processes governing the dynamics of these plasmas. This meeting aims at fostering, in particular, discussions about research and development results that set out or underline trends observed in the current major fusion confinement devices. Accurate data processing leads to a better understanding of the physics related to fusion research. It is essential for the careful estimate of the error bars of the raw measurements and processed data.


The objective of the meeting is to provide a platform during which a set of topics relevant to fusion data processing, validation and analysis are discussed with the view of extrapolation needs to next step fusion devices such as ITER.

Target Audience

This event is suitable for experienced scientists and young scientists working in the domain of plasma diagnostics and synthetic diagnostics data analysis.
