The 15th International RFP Workshop was held at the University of Wisconsin-Madison October 10-12, 2011.

This workshop series was organized through the framework of the International Energy Agency (IEA) Implementing Agreement on the Research and Development of Reversed Field Pinches (RFP). The last workshop was held at Conzorio RFX, Padova, Italy in 2010.

The workshop will cover RFP research as related to:

  1. Advancing the RFP as a high beta magnetic fusion configuration, with low external magnetization requirements
  2. Advancing the development of predictive toroidal magnetic confinement physics and fusion technology, exploiting synergies with tokamak and stellarator magnetic confinement
  3. Advancing basic plasma physics and laboratory connections to astrophysics

The workshop will be held on the campus of the University of Wisconsin-Madison. October is a pleasant season in Madison, and workshop attendees will enjoy the vibrant campus life, comfortable weather, colorful foliage, and beautiful lake settings characteristic of the fall season.

Deadline for registration and hotel reservation has passed.
