The 7th Fusion Materials Theory & Modelling Workshop 

The 7th Fusion Materials Theory & Modelling Workshop will be held at Yonsei University Global Campus, Songdo in Incheon, Korea from 29-31 January 2024. This workshop will be jointly organized by Mark Gilbert (United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority) and Byeongchan Lee (Kyung Hee University, Korea). 

Registration for this workshop is now closed


This workshop represents the 7th meeting in a series of workshops organized by the Fusion Materials Technology Cooperation Program (FM TCP) to discuss the status of Fusion Materials Theory and Modelling. As with the preceding workshops, the organizers aim for this to be a relatively small, discussion-oriented meeting to provide a forum for experts in the field to present and discuss the latest scientific results. A particular emphasis will be discussing how modelling can approach engineering-relevant length and time-scales and reproduce experimental observations. A key outcome from the workshop will be the publication of a high-impact review paper describing the status of fusion materials modelling and theory. The Fusion Materials TCP is part of a network of autonomous collaborative partnerships focused on a wide range of energy technologies, known as Technology Collaboration Programs or TCPs. The TCPs are organized under the auspices of the International Energy Agency (IEA), but the TCPs are functionally and legally autonomous. Views, findings, and publications of the Fusion Materials TCP do not necessarily represent the views or policies of the IEA Secretariat or its individual member countries. 

Workshop topics

The committee have selected the following topics as main themes of the workshop:

  • Prediction of transmutants in relevant fusion materials and modelling their impact on material properties
  • ML/AI for robust modelling of materials response to extreme environments
  • Materials response theory: spectral, thermal, and dose rate effects on materials models
  • Nuclear data needs for fusion, including high energy neutrons beyond 14 MeV in support of planned test facilities
  • Optimisation of Modelling and experimental validation activities to meet the priority materials challenges. 

While we will particularly look for contributions that align with one of these topics, we would also welcome other contributions that describe state-of-the-art activities in modelling and theory of fusion materials.
