Joint ICTP-IAEA School on Atomic Processes in Plasmas, 27 Feb - 3 Mar 2017 at ICTP in Trieste, Italy; applications are due Thu 20 Oct 2016
The Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) will jointly organize the 2017 Joint ICTP-IAEA School on Atomic Processes in Plasmas to be held at ICTP in Miramare, Trieste, Italy, from 27 February to 3 March 2017. The event will provide advanced training in theoretical and computational methods for atomic processes in plasmas. The schedule will feature lectures by international experts, exposure to some important codes, invited and contributed research talks, posters and discussion sessions, with good time available for personal interaction. We wish to attract advanced Ph.D. students, post-docs, early career faculty and other young researchers from around the world.
The school is concerned with theoretical and computational methods for the study of collisional and radiative atomic processes in plasmas including the following: atomic processes in low-density plasmas (e.g. astrophysical, fusion and laboratory);
atomic processes in warm and hot dense matter and X-ray sources; computational methods for atomic structure and collisions; principles of spectroscopic diagnostics of plasma; collisional-radiative modelling and calculation of plasma spectra; simulations of non-Maxwellian and highly transient plasmas; opacity (radiation transport) effects on plasma properties and plasma diagnostics; methods for analysis of spectral line shapes and profiles; online codes for calculation of ionization distributions and spectra.
The expected lecturers are Connor Ballance, Queen's University Belfast, UK, Hyun-Kyung Chung, International Atomic Energy Agency, Austria, Stephan Fritzsche, Helmholtz-Institut Jena, Germany, Hans-Joachim Kunze, Ruhr University Bochum,, Germany, Yuri Ralchenko, National Institute of Standards and Technology, USA, Howard A. Scott, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, USA, John Seely, Artep, Inc., USA, Evgeny Stambulchik, Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel.
The event will feature lectures during the mornings. During the afternoons there will be computer classes to provide exposure to some widely used codes, poster sessions for participants to present their work, additional lectures, research talks and discussion sessions. The desired participants by application are advanced Ph.D. students, post-docs and other young researchers working in atomic or plasma physics with a special interest in collisional and radiative processes of atomic ions in fusion, astrophysical and industrial plasma or warm and hot dense matter. Please see the meeting web page linked earlier for instructions about applying. A one-page free-format abstract of a scientific contribution (expected to be presented as a poster) is requested as a part of the applications procedure.
The school does not have a registration fee and accommodation at ICTP is available at low cost. A limited number of grants are available to support the travel and living expenses of selected participants, with priority given to participants working in a developing country and who are at the early stages of their career.
Directors: Bas Braams (IAEA), Hyun-Kyung Chung (IAEA), Yuri Ralchenko (NIST). Local organizer: Joe Niemela (ICTP).
