ANS Fusion Technology Meeting in Albuquerque

September 11, 2006

The 17th American Nuclear Society (ANS) Topical Meeting on the Technology of Fusion Energy (TOFE) will be held on November 13-15, 2006 in Albuquerque, NM, as an embedded meeting during the 2006 Winter ANS Meeting in Albuquerque, NM on November 12-16.

Albuquerque is home to Sandia National Laboratories, the Air Force Research Laboratory, and the University of New Mexico. In addition, Los Alamos National Laboratory, the Very Large Array, and White Sands Missile Range are within easy travel distance.

The scope of the TOFE meeting is to provide a forum for the discussion of new results in fusion technology as it relates to present fusion research and to future fusion energy applications. This is a particularly exciting time for fusion technology due to the development of ITER and NIF, and many other fusion facilities worldwide.

The Organizing Committee consists of:

General Chair Craig Olson (SNL)
Vice Chair Ichiro Yamamoto (Nagoya University)
Technical Program Chair Gary Rochau (SNL)
Assistant Technical Program Chair Akihiro Shimizu (Kyusyu University)
Finance Chair Sally Ek (SNL)
Publication Chair Virginia Vigil (SNL)
Student Awards Ben Cipiti (SNL)
Special Events and Guest Program Terrie Hof (SNL)
Publicity and Webmaster David York (SNL)

The TOFE website is at http://TOFE17.sandia.gov/.

The 17th TOFE will be a two and a half day meeting with plenary, oral, and poster sessions, with a mix of invited oral papers, and a substantial number of contributed oral and poster papers. In addition, special sessions are being planned on various topics (e.g., ITER).

The TOFE banquet will be held Tuesday, November 14, 2006. The ANS-FED awards will be announced at the banquet.

In the continuing TOFE tradition of promoting professional recognition, the ANS-FED will offer three awards to provide technical recognition in the fusion area. These are the Outstanding Technical Accomplishment Award, Outstanding Achievement Award, and Best Student Paper Award.

Persons may register for the TOFE meeting through either the TOFE website or the ANS website (http://www.ans.org/). Registration at the ANS Winter Meeting includes admittance to all TOFE technical sessions. A separate fee will be required for tickets to the TOFE banquet.

Early registration deadline is October 10, 2006.
