The 9th International Reflectometry Workshop for fusion plasma diagnostics, will be organized in co-operation with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) by the Instituto de Plasmas e Fusão Nuclear (IPFN) of Instituto Superior Técnico (IST). The workshop will be held in Lisbon, Portugal, at the IST premises from 4th - 6th May 2009.

The main objectives of the meeting are to review the latest experimental results in reflectometry (profile and fluctuations studies) as well as new technological developments and advances in the broad area of theory and simulation codes.

Presentations of 30 minutes are planned, including discussion.

The format of the workshop should be kept informal with open discussions triggered by the presentations. Contributed papers are requested and the workshop proceedings will be published on the web (www.ipfn.ist.utl.pt/irw9) and distributed to the participants on a CD.

Arrangements for accommodation will be made at Hotels AS Lisboa and Holiday Inn, both at walking distance from IST, at special workshop rates.

Attendance at the workshop is open to all. No registration fee will be charged.

The success of the Workshop strongly depends on a broad participation of the reflectometry diagnosticians. Therefore, we kindly ask you to forward this message to any of your colleagues, or others who may be interested.
