The DIII-D Research Opportunities Forum has been scheduled for October 16-18 at GA in San Diego. The Research Opportunities Forum provides a venue for interested scientists to present proposals and ideas for possible research on the DIII-D National Fusion Facility as well as an opportunity to discuss critical issues for both fusion science and preparations for ITER. Information on the proposal submission process and the Forum's agenda (as the details become available) can be found on the links to the left.
There are several objectives of the Research Opportunities Forum. The main goal of the DIII-D Research Opportunities Forum (ROF) is to lay the ground work for developing the best DIII-D experimental campaign. At the ROF, we wish to provide an opportunity for each scientist (DIII-D, national or international collaborator, and any interested participant) to present their ideas to the DIII-D team. The ROF also provides an opportunity for our colleagues in the fusion community to become familiar with the activities of the DIII-D program whether or not they propose specific experiments. Finally, we want the Research Opportunities Forum to be an opportunity for new participation in the DIII-D program.
As in the past any individual contributor can submit as many proposals to the website as they wish. These proposals will be sorted and distributed to the area leaders, or their delegates, to be discussed in the respective group meetings.
For those unfamiliar with the DIII-D planning process, this process consists of the following steps:
