The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) will organize the third Technical Meeting on Fusion Data Processing, Validation and Analysis from 28 to 31 May 2019 at the IAEA Headquarters, Vienna, Austria. The objective of the event is to provide a platform on which topics relevant to fusion data processing, validation and analysis may be discussed with the view of extrapolating the needs of next-step fusion devices such as ITER (‘International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor’). The validation and analysis of experimental data obtained from diagnostics used to characterize fusion plasmas are crucial for a knowledge based understanding of the physical processes governing the dynamics of these plasmas. The event will aim to foster, in particular, discussions about research and development results that set out or underline trends observed in the current major fusion confinement devices.
A tutorial session titled ‘A brief overview of probability theory in data science’ of about 75 minutes, to be given by Mr Geert Verdoolaege, is planned for
Monday, 27 May at 14:00 in meeting room C2.
Registration for the tutorial session is required: Please send an email to
Fusion Physics-Contact Point (Fusion-Physics@iaea.org) before 22nd May.
