FPA Annual Meeting Presentations Posted

January 6, 2004

Presentations at Fusion Power Associates November 19-21, 2003, annual meeting and symposium, Forum on the Future of Fusion, are posted at http://fire.pppl.gov/fpa_annual03.html

The presentations include a perspective on fusion within the U.S. government from Dr. Ray Orbach, director of the DOE Office of Science, and from Dr. Joel Parriott, fusion budget examiner at the White House Office of Management and Budget.

A comprehensive set of presentations on the status of ITER is included, as well as a series of talks on the status of burning plasma and tokamak physics, and also an overview of the innovative concepts program and spherical torus research.

A comprehensive set of presentations is also included on all aspects of inertial fusion, including the present status of the National Ignition Facility (NIF).

Overviews are also presented of both the Office of Fusion Energy Sciences programs and the inertial confinement fusion program of the National Nuclear Security Administration.

A summary of the symposium will be published in the Journal of Fusion Energy at a later date.
