MoD-PMI 2019

The International Workshop on Models and Data for Plasma-Material Interaction in Fusion Devices (MoD-PMI 2019) is organized in cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) for the fourth time. The event, which will be held in Toki, Japan from 18 – 20 June 2019, will bring together researchers from the areas of fusion energy and materials science to review advances, both experimental and in the modelling, in study and understanding of processes relevant to plasma-material interaction in fusion devices.

The workshop series provides a bridge between fundamental computations and interpretation of experimental data; it addresses a variety of processes spanning a wide range of scales including erosion, transport and trapping of hydrogen and helium in the wall, changes in the material microstructure, composition and morphology.
