10thIAEA Technical Meeting on

”H-mode Physics and Transport Barriers”

28-30 September 2005

St.Petersburg, Russia


International Atomic Energy Agency


The 10th IAEA Technical Meeting on ”H-mode Physics and Transport Barriers” will take place between 28 and 30 September, 2005 in St. Petersburg, at the Physico-Technical Scientific Educational Centre. This meeting is the continuation of a series of previous meetings (San Diego 1987, Gut Ising 1989, Abingdon 1991, Naka 1993, Princeton 1995, Kloster Seeon 1997, Oxford 1999, Toki 2001, San Diego 2003).


The purpose of the meeting is to present and discuss the status of H-mode and internal transport barrier experiments, theory and modeling in magnetic fusion research and to discuss scientific solutions of H-mode control for the purpose of exploring possibilities of enhanced operating regimes in next step large fusion devices.


The meeting will be organized around several broad topics of current interest. An overview talk, accompanied by discussion, will be presented for each topic. Each talk will be followed by a poster session of contributed papers, related to the topic.

To achieve the purpose of the meeting, the international advisory committee solicits contributed papers that present and discuss recent experimental, theoretical or modeling studies of transport barriers, both internal and edge, as observed in numerous magnetic confinement machines and in a variety of magnetic topologies.

The official language of the meeting is English (no interpretation will be provided). It is expected that the meeting will start at 09:00 on 28 September 2005 and end by 17:45 on 30 September 2005.

Written versions of the overview and contributed papers, which meet the referees' approval and appropriate length requirements, will be published in a special issue of Plasma Physics and Controlled Fusion. However, written papers are not required.


Only persons nominated by IAEA Member States or international organizations are eligible for participation in the Technical Meeting. Participants should be persons actively involved in the topics of the meeting.
