The York Plasma Institute (part of the School of Physics, Engineering and Technology) hosts a number of conferences each year. Further details can be found below.
25th Joint EU-US Transport Task Force Meeting
This event will take place ONLINE from Monday 6 September until Friday 10 September 2021.
The ultimate goal of the EU-US Transport Task Force (TTF) is to develop a physics-based understanding of particle, momentum, and heat transport in magnetic fusion devices.

Advances in experimental and computational plasma science research is producing larger and more complex data sets. Deriving value from the increasing volume and diversity of data now available provides opportunities for greater insight into complex plasma systems and their interfaces with materials and other phases. In order to extract optimum value from data and fully exploit data interpretation, development of new techniques is required. Embracing data-driven discovery in plasma science will enable a new era of plasma science and technology research and development. This will see advances in a range of up-and-coming plasma applications including future medical therapeutics such as cancer treatment, combatting anti-microbial resistance, sophisticated materials and coatings, next generation electronic chip manufacturing for computing and mobile phone technologies, clean energy sources such as fusion, and sustainable energy storage in solar fuels. This conference aims to stimulate dialogue and collaboration between researchers from the disciplines of plasma and data science.

The 14th Direct Drive and Fast Ignition Workshop continues a series of meetings dedicated to inertial confinement research in Europe. It provides an unique opportunity for European and oversees scientists working in theory, simulations and experiments to present and discuss their latest results and future plans in an informal atmosphere. The meeting also addresses new schemes for inertial confinement fusion and the related science at the cutting edge of high energy density physics research. Novel experiments in the field, Benchmarking of simulation codes against experiments and the use of codes in the design and interpretation of experiments are extensively discussed. Representatives of leading and upcoming laser user facilities will illustrate the opportunities for new experiments.

The theme of the event was “Exploring the challenges of reducing the size and capital cost of nuclear power units and the role of Government, industry, national labs and academia in meeting these challenges”. The concept was to bring together students and academics from the partner universities (York, Oxford, Liverpool, Manchester, Durham, Sheffield, Leeds, Lancaster, Imperial, Cambridge, OU) with key stakeholders from industry and other external bodies (such as Rolls Royce, National Nuclear Laboratory, UKAEA, CCFE), to foster discussions, research ideas, and links around the topic of compact nuclear.
The aim was primarily to connect the students from the partner institutions with key nuclear industries and secondly to stimulate collaborations between industry, academia, and national labs. This type of event is an important part of the mission of CDTs: to create relationships and discussions that are wider than the topic of a single CDT, sharing of best practice, and interacting with key external stakeholders in industry and national laboratories.
