ICTP 2021: Data-Driven Research on Plasmas

This event will be held online as a virtual Workshop from 13 – 17 December 2021.

This School will assist Ph.D. students and other early-stage career researchers to develop their quantitative understanding of the fundamental processes that produce the observed behaviour and properties of plasmas; through lectures and practical computing sessions they will also gain skills in the application of modern data science techniques to the calculation and evaluation of data on these processes. Scientists in developing countries without extensive experimental research facilities will particularly benefit from such training in modern, data-driven computational physics.

Further practical details are available at the ICTP webpage for this event.

Participants by Application

Successful participants by application are expected to be early-stage career researchers (at about the postgraduate student and post-doc level) working in the field of modelling and simulation of radiation damage in nuclear energy research. Applications for participation are accepted through the ICTP webpage for this event.

There is no registration fee for this Workshop.
