CHAPTER C  OTHER ACTIVITIES IN 2008
C1 7th School and Workshop on Fusion Physics and Technology
The Administrative Committee of the Research Unit of the Association and the University of Thessaly organised the “Seventh School and Workshop on Fusion Physics and Technology”, held in Volos from 14 to 19 April 2008. Following the trend established during the previous years, this year’s School surpassed in success the previous ones. In spite of the effort to reduce its duration (for fiscal reasons), it had again to last for 6 days, to accommodate the large number of presentations, which were organised in 17 Sessions, of which 5 were Plenary, 3 for Fusion School, 4 as Advanced Seminars, 2 as Tutorial Sessions, and 3 as Research Seminars. The lectures were given by 12 distinguished visiting scholars (in alphabetical order: Alberti, Benkadda, Carati, Illy, Karditsas, Papastergiou, Peeters, Piosczyk, Ram, Ramponi, Weyssow, Zurita), as well as by the scientific personnel of the Association.
