Workshop on RF Heating Technology of Fusion Plasmas 2019

US-EU-JPN RF Heating Technology Workshop: September 09 (Mon) -12 (Thu), 2019

Hotel zum Roten Bären, Freiburg, Germany


We are cordially inviting you to attend the US-EU-JPN workshop on RF heating technology which will be held at the Hotel zum Roten Bären, Freiburg, Germany.

US-EU-JPN workshops on RF heating technology have a long history. They have been contributing to promote RF heating in fusion research through stimulated discussions and resulting collaborations. In the past researchers from US, Europe and Japan institutions have participated in the meetings. We would like to extend the invitation to members from the ITER Organization to participate and to give presentations.

In 2019 the workshop will be organised by Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Institute for Pulsed Power and Microwave Technology (IHM) and the Institute for Applied Materials, Applied Materials Physics (IAM-AWP).

Freiburg is located at  the river Dreisam in Breisgau and is the fourth largest city in Baden-Württemberg. The old town with its landmarks, the cathedral and the “Bächle” is the destination of 3 million visitors a year. The old town is famous for its architectural buildings, mostly in the French Gothic style. The location of the hotel zum Roten Bären is one of the oldest inns in Germany and the oldest building (1729) in Freiburg.

Close to Freiburg there is Colmar a city in Alsace in northeastern France, on the border with Germany. The old town is characterized by cobbled streets and half-timbered houses from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. The city is located on the Alsace Wine Route, which is known for Riesling and Gewürztraminer from the region. Colmar is a city with many advantages and irresistible charm. In the idyll of a manageable Alsatian town you will find an incredibly rich cultural heritage and the charming old town with the famous district "Little Venice".

The Hohkönigsburg (French Château du Haut-Kœnigsbourg) is a castle which has been reconstructed at the beginning of the 20th century in Alsace (Département Bas-Rhin). The castle was built in the first half of the 12th century as a Hohenstaufen Imperial Castle and first mentioned in 1147 as Castrum Estufin. It is the most visited castle in the region and one of the most frequented tourist destinations in France.
