In celebration of the International Day of Women and Girls in Science on 11 Feb, the Fusion Group at the Barcelona Supercomputing Center highlights the past women speakers at the Fusion HPC Workshop, held virtually each year since 2020. This workshop covers all computer applications using High Performance Computing (HPC) in the field of fusion research.

Introduction to Fusion Energy and Plasma Physics: Open Access Lectures from PPPL
Last year the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) hosted its annual Introduction to Fusion Energy and Plasma Physics Course online. Open access to recorded lectures makes this an excellent resource for undergraduates, recent graduates, and anyone new to fusion research. The course was developed as part of the Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internships (SULI) program funded by the US Department of Energy.
Celebrating International Day of Women and Girls in Science 2022
Declared in 2015 by the General Assembly of the United Nations, International Day of Women and Girls in Science (IDWGS), celebrated every year on the 11th of February, highlights the contributions of women and girl scientists and promotes gender equality across all scientific fields.
In honor of IDWGS we have selected four outstanding women fusioneers from across the world, each of whom work to push the boundaries of fusion research and bring us closer to viable fusion energy.
