Joint Working Session of EUROfusion WP JET1 / WP MST1 / WP PFC

Participants of the Joint Working Session in 2015

Tervaniemi, Finland, 3-6 February 2015


Plasma boundary properties, material erosion&migration, fuel retention and formation of mixed materials in a tokamak device are closely linked. The description of the underlying processes within a self-consistent model is the main subject of current code development and validation. Code validation and interpretation of experiments by modelling are part of the programme of EUROfusion Work Packages JET1, JET2, MST1 and PFC. The working session programme aims at reviewing development status and validation activities of the existing codes with particular emphasis on scenarios encountered in devices with all-metal wall configuration. Future benchmarking experiments and code development e.g. regarding implementation of missing physics and extension of the computational domain will be discussed with particular emphasis on experiment coordination between modelling groups and tokamak teams. In this sense the workshop should be regarded as a platform to exchange ideas across boundaries of related topics (i.e. across WPs).

Agenda version 23.1.2015


Tervaniemi, built in 1886, was originally the summer place for the owner of Tervakoski paper factory. Located by a lake, it nowadays provides an inspiring atmosphere and modern facilities for meetings. In the evenings you can tune up your appetite with Finnish specialties - sauna and ice-water swimming - and enjoy a dinner in the old-style dining room.
It should be noted that the traditional post sauna ice-water dip is considered a quasi-mandatory activity since the very first meeting. You have been warned :-)


Tervaniemi offers cottages for 1-6 people and the participation fee (estimated as 436 €, payable at check-out in Tervaniemi) covers accommodation and all meals. For accommodation in Helsinki on Monday 2nd of February, see information on hotels below. 


There are daily flight connections between Helsinki and all major European destinations. Participants are advised to arrive on Monday 2nd February. There is a quota of 25 single rooms in Sokos Hotel Presidentti at a rate of 122 € including breakfast (NOTE: booking by email from with code EUROfusion, valid until 26th of January). Several other hotels are available nearby. Bus transport from Helsinki to Tervaniemi on Tuesday morning will depart in front of Hotel Presidentti at 8:45 am (address: Eteläinen Rautatiekatu 4, 00100 Helsinki). The Friday session ends in the early afternoon and transport to the airport is provided as well (estimated arrival time at the airport is at 2:45 pm).
