Upcoming events

Invited talk at the International Tokamak Physics Activity meeting Mathias Hoppe is invited to give a talk with the title "DREAM: a fluid-kinetic framework for disruption runaway electron simulations" at the ITPA MHD, Disruptions & Control topical group meeting.

Invited talk at the Japan Society for Promotion of Science Tünde will give an invited talk about "Kinetic modelling of runaway electrons in cooling plasmas" on 25 March for the JSPS "Gas kinetic/dynamics and applications" workshop.

JPP Frontiers of Plasma Physics Colloquium Tünde will give a talk with the title "The runaway electron landscape of cooling plasmas" on 8 April 5pm (CET).

Presentations at the 28th IAEA Fusion Energy Conference (FEC 2020) 10-15 May Tünde Fülöp will give a presentation with the title "Self-consistent modelling of runaway dynamics in tokamak disruptions" and Mathias Hoppe will present "Polarized synchrotron radiation as a tool for studying runaway electrons". Members of our group are co-authors on the presentations by Y Peysson: "Effect of partially ionized high-Z atoms on fast electron dynamics in tokamak plasmas", G Papp: "Runaway electron experiments and model validation on ASDEX Upgrade and TCV", and E Nardon: "Theory and Modelling activities in support of the ITER Disruption Mitigation System".
