14th Carolus Magnus Summer School

Carolus Magnus Summer School

The 14th Carolus Magnus Summer School on Plasma and Fusion Energy Physics (CMSS) takes place this year between 20 September and 1 October. The event is held online and has attracted 90 participants from around 25 countries.

Attending to CMSS has a long tradition in our group. Our group leader Mervi Mantsinen was one of the participants in the 1st CMSS in Vaals, The Netherlands back in 1993 while our group member Dani Gallart with our ex-group member Allah Rakha participated in its previous 13th edition in Weert, The Netherlands, in 2018. To follow the tradition, our two PhD students, i.e. Tomás Bensadón and Mátyás Aradi, attend the summer school this year.

The summer school is a biannual event, organised by excellent research institutes and universities in the Trilateral Euregio Cluster (TEC) formed by Belgium, the Netherlands and the state of North-Rhine Westphalia, Germany. The Carolus Magnus Summer School is one of the major plasma physics summer schools in Europe.

This year, the host institute is the Forschungzentrum Jülich, Germany.

Students are introduced to a wide range of topics in nuclear fusion researches with the chapters from theoretical plasma physics (magnetohydrodynamics, transport, plasma heating, instabilities, plasma–wall interaction etc.), numerical modelling and plasma diagnostics. Furthermore, the partner institutes present the research work that have an important role in the European research activities. The full programme is available here.

The summer school is a great opportunity for PhD students to learn from great experts and broaden their horizons in fusion plasma physics. In addition, the students can present their research activities in front of the scientific community as a ten-minute long presentation.

If you missed the Carolus Magnus Summer School this year, the proceedings of the talks will be published with OpenAccess licence after the event. We would also encourage you to apply to the next event!
