1st WEST International Workshop

The Institute of Research on Magnetic Fusion (IRFM) of CEA and the Aix Marseille University are pleased to invite you to join the 1st WEST international workshop, to be held in Aix en Provence, France, from June 30 to July 2, 2014.

The WEST project (W-tungsten Environment in Steady-state Tokamak) has been launched by CEA in March 2013. WEST is targeted at minimizing risks for the ITER tungsten divertor procurement and operation, as well as mastering integrated plasma scenarios over long pulses in a metallic environment. It consists of implementing a divertor configuration and installing an ITER like actively cooled tungsten divertor in the Tore Supra tokamak, taking full benefit of its long pulse capability. The WEST platform will be run as a user facility, open to the ITER partners. First plasma is expected in 2016.

The objective of the workshop is for the participants to contribute to building the WEST scientific program. International fusion experts will chair the discussion along topical headlines, together with experts from ITER Organization and domestic agencies in charge of procuring the ITER divertor. The output of the meeting will be used as a basis to produce an updated version of the WEST research plan by end 2014. For more details on the meeting agenda, see the scientific programme section.

The meeting will be hosted by the Aix Marseille University in Aix en Provence, France (Hotel Boyer de Fonscolombe, IMPGT,

see workshop venue for more details).
