International Workshop

10th EU-US Transport Task Force Workshop on
The Physics of Transitions in Transport Behaviour
Villa Monastero, Varenna, (taly)
September 6 – 9, 2004

Co-organized by

– International School of Plasma Physics, “Piero Caldirola”, Milano, Italy
– Istituto di Fisica del Plasma Piero Caldirola, Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche, Milano, Italy

With the contribution of
– Istituto di Fisica del Plasma di Milano, Italy
– Ente per le Nuove tecnologie, l’ Energia e l’ Ambiente (ENEA), Italy
– Istituto di Fisica Universita’ degli Studi di Milano, Italy

  • The main emphasis of the workshop will be experimental, theoretical and computational work on the physics of transitions in transport behaviour:
  • Dynamics of Transport Barrier Formation
  • The Physics of Thresholds and Hysteresis
  • The Role of Magnetic Geometry in Thresholds and Hysteresis
  • Differences between Barriers in Electron heated and Ion heated Discharges
  • Challenging Transitions between different Confinement Modes
  • Transitions in the directions of particle 'pinches'
  • The sessions on more general aspects of transport aim to include contributions on transport scalings:
  • The origin of different scalings with rho and the transition from electrostatic to electromagnetic transport
  • Electron Heat Transport
  • Momentum Sources and Transport important for barrier formation
  • Changes in Fluctuation characteristics
  • Particle and Impurity Transport
