The aim of the conference is to provide a discussion forum covering all areas of fusion-oriented theoretical activities.

The main topics covered by the EFTC are:

• Basic plasma theory

• Macro-instabilities and operational limits

• Alternative concepts: stellarators, RFPs, spherical tokamaks, laser induced ignition

• Turbulent transport and structures: experimental evidence and theoretical basis

• Neoclassical transport: theory and experimental evidence

• Burning plasmas and fast particles

• Heating, current drive, and wave particle interactions

• Edge and SOL/divertor physics

  1. Computational modelling in plasma physics
