The 2010 International Sherwood Fusion Theory Conference will be held April 19 - 21, 2010 in Seattle, Washington.

The latest theoretical results in basic plasma physics and their application to the international fusion energy science program will be presented including areas such as:

  • Plasma Properties, Equilibrium, Stability, and Transport
  • Physics of Plasma Edge and Divertor Region
  • Plasma Production and Heating
  • Computer Simulations of Plasmas

The program consists of invited review papers, oral contributed papers, and poster presentations. Oral talks will be selected by the program committee from abstract submissions. All submissions will be accepted for presentation in either oral or poster format.
