    The 18th International RFP (Reversed Field Pinch) Workshop is organized as part of the activity under the International Energy Agency (IEA) implementing agreement (IA) for a Programme of Research and Development on the Reversed Field Pinch (RFP). The workshop will be held March 27-29, 2017 on the Kyoto Institute of Technology campus.

    This IA advances the development of magnetic fusion through research on the RFP magnetic configuration. As a close relative to the tokamak and stellarator configurations, RFP research advances fusion science and engineering generically, while resolving key challenges specific to an RFP-based fusion reactor.

    This workshop is being organized jointly by the Program Committee and the Local Organizing Committeefrom Plasma Science and Technology Laboratory at Kyoto Institute of Technology. Researchers from around the world will gather to discuss general RFP physics and engineering issues. Some of the sessions will be organized with participation from non-RFP groups for discussion of generic issues. Participation from non-RFP groups is strongly encouraged.

    This meeting is the 18th in a series of international workshops. Please visit the following websites to get an idea what previous workshops have been like.
