Abstracts should be sent in pdf format, file name as “NAME_Varenna20_abstr.pdf”, by June 15, 2020 to:
O. SAUTER, SPC/EPFL, Station 13, PPB-Ecublens,

Proceedings

As usual, papers will be published in a refereed journal with IOP. The journal will be Plasma Phys. Contr. Fusion (PPCF), for the main papers, and Journal of Physics Conference Series (JPCS) for the other papers.
– The papers published in PPCF will follow the usual refereeing process of this journal and will be published as a cluster of papers related to the Varenna-Lausanne Theory of Fusion Plasmas 2020 Conference.
Follow the guidelines and then LaTeX templates. Note that YOU NEED TO PROVIDE THE PDF PAPER BY FRIDAY 21 AUGUST 2020, so that we can organize the refereeing process in due time.
– The papers published in JPCS will be refereed mainly by the scientific committee and participants of the conference, supervised by X. Garbet and O. Sauter, acting as Editors. The JPCS papers will have a header stating explicitly that the papers have been refereed. Naturally the refereeing process will be lighter (typically one referee) than the PPCF publication. Follow the guidelines and the LateX templates. Note that YOU NEED TO PROVIDE THE PDF PAPER BY FRIDAY 21 AUGUST 2020, so that we can organize the refereeing process in due time.
When submitting the paper, the author can propose a publication in PPCF or JPCS, however the final decision is under the responsibility of the scientific committee. Typically invited papers will be published in PPCF and contributed papers in JPCS.
Papers, invited (typically 10 pages but no hard limit) and contributed (typically 6-8 pages, but no hard limit), have to follow the Latex guidelines and templates provided by PPCF and by JPCS.
The deadline for the paper is the week before the conference.
Thus send the paper before August 21, 2020, by email to
