Due to the CoVid-19 pandemic issues this event has been delayed for Summer 2021. New dates: July 6-7-8.

Original Welcome:

This event is dedicated to assembling experts on the fields of plasma and particle physics, in particular on laser induced fusion and particle production in intense fields. These research areas are promising for future development, they connect to the use of large scale international facilities, like CERN and ELI.

Main Topics:

  • Perspectives on Laser and Particle Beam Aided Fusion
  • Particle Production in Strong Fields
  • Field Theory about Particlization (Hadronization)
  • New Methods and Mathematical Techniques

On May 19-th 2020 Jan Rafelski was 70, presenting an additional occasion to review the above research topics in which he was making contributions. Jan is in Summer 2020 and 2021 a Fulbright Fellow at the Budapest Wigner Institute, a fortuitous coincidence.
