Inaugural IFE Science and Technology Strategic Planning Workshop: Updates on
Progress, Visions, and Near-Term Opportunities

San Ramon, California
April 24 - 27, 2007

The Fusion Energy Program at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory will host a community workshop to assess near-term and long-term research opportunities and to update plans as they pertain to inertial fusion energy and the associated high energy density physics and technologies.

A major focus of the Workshop will be on outlining and updating plans for how the high energy density physics (HEDP), inertial confinement fusion (ICF), and inertial fusion energy (IFE) communities will work together to develop a compelling U.S. IFE strategy. Both near-term and longer-term activities will be discussed. The Workshop will focus on the science and technology needed to make IFE an attractive energy source and how the needed R&D will evolve from current HEDP/ICF/IFE activities and facilities.

The workshop will be held Tuesday through Friday (noon), April 24 - 27, 2007 at the Marriott Hotel in San Ramon, California, in the East Bay region. A block of rooms is being held until April 9, 2007. Participants are encouraged to stay at the Marriott hotel in order to help us meet our contractual obligations.
