Welcome to PFMC-17 Eindhoven, the Netherlands, 20th-24th May 2019

The performances of fusion devices and of future fusion power plants strongly depend on the plasma-facing materials and components. Resistance to heat and particle loads, compatibility in plasma operations, thermo-mechanical properties, as well as the response to neutron irradiation are critical parameters which need to be understood and tailored from atomistic to component levels.

The 17th International Conference on Plasma-Facing Materials and Components for Fusion Applications addresses these issues.

Selected international speakers will present overview lectures and treat detailed aspects of the given topics. Contributed papers to the subjects of the meeting are solicited for oral and poster presentations. The proceedings will be published in the peer-reviewed journal Physica Scripta.

The conference will be held 21st-24th May 2019, with tutorials for young scientists and those new to the field or who need a refresher on 20th May.

The conference is jointly organized by the Dutch Institute for Fundamental Energy Research (DIFFER) and Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e).
