Culham Plasma Physics Summer School

March 6, 2017, from Philippa Browning

The 54th Culham International Plasma Physics Summer School will be held
17th – 28th July 2017 at CCFE (Culham, near Oxford).

The closing date for applications is May 22nd.

The aim of the Summer School is to provide an introduction to the fundamental principles of plasma physics, together with a broad understanding of its fields of application. The summer school consists of lectures, problem classes, a poster session, and laboratory visits. The first few days provide an introduction to the basic principles of plasma physics through lectures and problem solving sessions. Thereafter, the course covers fusion plasmas, solar, space and astrophysical plasmas, laser plasmas, industrial applications, and data analysis.
The course is directed and supervised by Dr. Joanne Flanagan and Dr. Michael Fitzgerald and is co-ordinated by Mr. Andrew Wise.
Lecturers are drawn from the Culham Centre for Fusion Energy (CCFE), the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (RAL) together with leading European universities. All are renowned experts in their fields.
