EnergETHICS Science Fair in Trieste


Researchers, entrepreneurs, journalists, policymakers, and students will gather in Trieste for EnergETHICS,  the third TriesteNext science fair

Many events hosted in attractive locations across the city will be dedicated to the present and future trends in Energy, exploring the impact of production and use of energy, with special attention to the latest scientific innovations arising from close interaction between science and industry.

One event will be dedicated to nuclear fusion, the energy of the stars, and will shed light on the current status of facilities and projects dedicated to developing fusion for energy.

13th International Workshop on Fast Ignition of Fusion Targets

Queen's College, Oxford, UK

Organised by the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) and AWE plc

We are pleased to invite you to participate in the 13th International Workshop on Fast Ignition of Fusion Targets, taking place from September 14th-18th 2014, in The Queen's College, Oxford. The workshop, held every two years, brings together the leading international researchers in the field of Fast Ignition Inertial Confinement Fusion (ICF).

This workshop will continue the series of successful International Workshops on Fast Ignition, the most recent of which were held in Napa, California (2012), Shanghai, China (2010), Crete (2008), and Boston, USA (2006). The program will include oral and poster presentations as well as discussion sessions focused on the current status of Fast Ignition research and mapping out strategic directions going forward. The meeting will follow the same informal, interactive atmosphere of past workshops in the series.

Topics include:

HIPOLIN 2014 Erasmus IP

Rethymno, Crete, Greece

TEI of Crete/CPPL and the organising committee welcomes you to the European Erasmus IP on
"An Introduction to High Power Light-Matter Interactions" (HIPOLIN).


HIPOLIN is an intense training course funded by the Erasmus IP action.


One of the most exciting areas of science and technology during the last two decades is that of high power laser light interactions with matter. This is because nowadays the power of laser light has reached the PW (Petawatt) regime, at which phenomena which could not be investigated before can now be explored in the lab. The output of such research is new fascinating science from the atomic to the universal level and technological applications, ranging from medicine to energy production, and all relating directly to improving the quality of life for mankind.
