Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the 15th edition of the Summer School of Plasma Physics (http://kudowaschool.ipplm.pl/), to be held on 29 June – 3 July 2020 in Kudowa-Zdrój, will take place online via the Zoom connection.

Kudowa Summer School "Towards Fusion Energy" is addressed to young scientists both from Poland and abroad. In addition to acquiring knowledge, participants of the virtual School will also have the opportunity to present the results of their own research. Awards will go to the authors of the three best presentations.

The Institute of Plasma Physics and Laser Microfusion has invited 19 outstanding specialists from leading scientific centers to give lectures during the School.

Topics of lectures and sessions will deal with various aspects of fusion energy, plasma experiments, its technology and diagnostics. Issues related to the space thrusters operation will also be discussed.
