Theme & Topics 

The workshop theme for this year is “MHD control needs for burning plasma devices.” Given the recent fast-paced pursuits toward realizing economical fusion reactors, with a large variety among various organizations, discussion of MHD stability and control applied across devices is particularly important.  The agenda will include contributed talks, invited talks, and a panel discussion.  Although the theme should provide some guidance for contributed and invited talks, this does not preclude presentations on other topics related to MHD stability/control.

Key Information

   Friday-Saturday October 14-15, 2022

   Spokane, WA, USA. 

The 26th Workshop on MHD Stability Control will be a hybrid meeting including both remote and in-person participation, though in-person attendance is strongly recommended. The physical meeting will be held at the Spokane Convention Center. This is the same location that the  American Physical Society (APS) Division of Plasma Physics (DPP) Annual meeting will be held in the following week, and the same travel / lodging is recommended (details here). Remote participation will be available through Zoom, with details provided to registered participants the week prior to the meeting.

COVID-19 considerations

This Workshop will uphold vaccination and masking protocols consistent with those of the larger APS DPP meeting that will follow at the same location.


Registration will take place via the APS DPP meeting website.  Workshop registration will appear as an add-on to the regular DPP conference registration, which makes the financial process more streamlined for conference arrangements; payment will be made directly to the APS hosts.  Please be mindful of this when registering for the DPP conference.  The cost of registration and deadlines have not yet been established.  If you will need an alternative means of registration, such as if you will not register for APS DPP, please stay tuned for further instructions.


The workshop will not be recorded.  However, with author approval, presentations will be posted to a password-protected archive after the workshop.  A link will appear in side menu bar of this website.
