Runaway electron generation in plasmas is a phenomenon that is rich in basic physics and has also great practical importance. It is a candidate mechanism for electron acceleration in solar flares, it is frequently observed in electric discharges associated with thunderstorms, and it occurs also in tokamak disruptions, when the plasma current is forced to change too quickly and a large electric field is induced. In tokamaks, runaways may damage plasma facing components due to their highly localized energy deposition. The potential for detrimental effects increases with plasma current. Therefore, understanding the processes that may eliminate runaway beam formation is very important for future reactor-scale tokamaks with high currents, such as ITER. The aim of the meeting is to make progress in the modelling of runaway electron dynamics, with a particular focus to runaways in tokamak disruptions, as well as on the analysis of JET SPI experiments. This meeting is open to **all interested researchers**. **The meeting takes place at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne**. *(If you have questions about the online registrations, or issues registering, don't hesitate to contact Mathias Hoppe (contact details below))* *The Journal of Plasma Physics sponsors the best student talks at this workshop! The competition is judged by the meeting participants via an anonymous poll at the end of the meeting.* ![Journal of Plasma Physics](
