1st Belgrade Fusion Science and Technology Workshop (BegFuST)

      Under the auspices of the Rector of the University of Belgrade

Fusion is considered as one of the most important sources for future stable and environment friendly long-term energy supply. A successful commercialized fusion reactor could provide a powerful source for electricity production without the impediments of traditional power plants such as the production of hazardous waste and without dependence on daily weather conditions in modern renewable power units. Aiming to develop a prototype of fusion reactor relevant to a power plant, extensive scientific and technological activities performed in the framework of several multidisciplinary international and national projects, such as ITER, DEMO, IFMIF-EVEDA, IFMIF-DONES, LHD, FFHR. These projects are supported by large government-backed research organizations as well as by private startups.

Within the Serbian scientific community, there is a large interest as well as potential for participation in fusion research. This was confirmed by the recently signed Collaboration agreement between the National Institute of Fusion Sciences - NIFS (Japan) and the University of Belgrade. With the goal of promoting the collaboration with NIFS and to motivate the collaboration with EUROFUSION and other fusion research institutions, the University of Belgrade is organizing the 1st Belgrade Fusion Science and Technology Workshop (BegFuST).

The Workshop will take place on Monday the 24th August 2020 in Belgrade as a satellite of the SPIG conference (Summer School and International Symposium on the Physics of Ionized Gases). The BegFuST Workshop will gather invited speakers from the leading fusion institutions. In the scope of the Workshop the latest research results and practical achievements in generating fusion energy as well as scientific and technological challenges in development of commercial devices will be presented. The level of presentations will be suitable to both specialists and non- specialists.

The BegFuST Workshop will cover the following topics:

  • Fusion plasma devices
  • Fusion plasma diagnostics
  • Fusion plasma modeling
  • Plasma surface interaction
  • Design of plasma facing components
  • Investigations of materials for fusion relevant conditions
