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 16th Technical Meeting on Energetic Particles in Magnetic Confinement Systems — Theory of Plasma Instabilities (EPPI 2019) aims to provide a forum to discuss the status of experimental and theoretical work on suprathermal electrons and ions in a wide variety of magnetic confinement geometries, and to discuss theoretical and computational physics issues relevant to burning plasmas.

The event will focus on the formation and transportation of energetic particles, including their confinement properties. It will provide a detailed account of the location of lost energetic particle incidence on first wall components, the collective instabilities driven by energetic particles and their impact on plasma properties in different operational scenarios, and energetic particle diagnostics. It will aim, in particular, at identifying current physics issues and gaps associated with energetic particles in ITER and future fusion power plants.

Additionally, the event will cover linear and non-linear theory and simulation of plasma instabilities, including core/edge turbulence, magneto-hydrodynamic processes, and energetic particle driven dynamics and their effects on plasma confinement. Attention will be paid to multi-scale interaction dynamics to better understand burning plasmas, as well as to the modelling of such complex physical processes.

The EPPI 2019 is being organized by the IAEA, in cooperation with the Government of Japan through the National Institute for Fusion Science, in Shizuoka City, Japan. Previous Technical Meetings on Energetic Particles in Magnetic Confinement Systems were held in Kiev, Ukraine (1989), Aspenas, Sweden (1991), Trieste, Italy (1993), Princeton, United States of America (1995), Abingdon, United Kingdom (1997), Naka, Japan (1999), Gothenburg, Sweden (2001), San Diego, United States of America (2003), Takayama, Japan (2005), Seeon-Seebruck, Germany (2007), Kiev, Ukraine (2009), Austin, United States of America (2011), Beijing, China (2013),Vienna, Austria (2015), and Princeton, United States of America (2017). In addition, previous Technical Meetings on Theory of Plasma Instabilities were held in Seeon-Seebruck, Germany (2002), Trieste, Italy (2005), York, United Kingdom (2007), Kyoto, Japan (2009), Austin, United States of America (2011), Vienna, Austria (2013), Frascati, Italy (2015), and Vienna, Austria (2017).
