Laurea triennale più specialistica (3+2), riforma Gelmini, avvio dell’Anvur, nuove forme di reclutamento, crisi finanziaria che attanaglia l’università: molti sono stati in questi anni i cambiamenti per il sistema universitario italiano. Molti i cambiamenti anche per una università giovane come la Bicocca: nuovo statuto, espansione degli iscritti, inizi di internazionalizzazione, ricerca della sua identità tra università di massa e di eccellenza. Molti anche
i problemi neanche ancora toccati sia a livello nazionale sia locale: definizione di master e dottorati, la grande cenerentola del sistema universitario italiano, terza missione dell’università, definizione di un ruolo attivo delle comunità di studenti e docenti come soggetto propulsore dell’università, nuovi metodi di finanziamento e diritto allo studio più legati al merito e alla domanda più che all’offerta. In questo contesto nasce la domanda inevitabile:
quale futuro per la Bicocca? Vorremmo trovarci per discuterne assieme sabato 3 novembre a Varenna.

Purpose
The motivation, scope and aim of the FUNFI workshop derive from the renewed interest
in nuclear energy that has led to new construction of fission reactors and R&D on next generation (GIV) types. Research on fusion reactors is continuing and has recently branched off to include plasmas of limited energy gain constituting powerful neutron sources suited for irradiation purposes, which can be tailored as drivers for sub-critical fission reactors.
Fusion-fission hybrid reactors allow increased extraction efficiency of the
fission fuel energy with relaxed energy gain demand on the fusion plasmas.
FUNFI will address the physics principles of fusion-fission hybrids and current
research. The focus will be on the characteristics of different plasmas in magnetic confinement that can serve as drivers in hybrid reactors, as well as, driver interface to surrounding neutron reaction blankets.
The workshop is directed to scientists and PhD students on FUNFI hybrid research
and relevant fields of magnetic fusion plasmas, fast fission reactors, neutron physics, etc., besides those interested in learning more about the potential role of fusion-fission hybrids
to provide better nuclear energy.
The program will contain tutorials on scientific/technical background for FUNFI
including its potential role in future use of nuclear energy, besides complementary lectures on selected research activities. The program will also include submitted contributions (on magnetic FUNFI plasmas), of which a selection will be made for presentation in the oral or poster sessions. Ample time is scheduled for discussions.
Besides the science/engineering aspects of hybrids, there will be a concluding session on the theme ‘Future nuclear energy with FUNFI’ based on special lecture presentations.

Special Lectures
·Geo-political and strategic aspects of present and future nuclear energy.  Hans Blix (Former GD of IAEA)
· Nuclear energy acceptance and potential role to meet future energy demand.

The papers published in JPCS will be refereed mainly by the scientific committee and participants of the conference, supervised by X. Garbet and O. Sauter, acting as Editors. The JPCS papers will have a header stating explicitly that the papers have been refereed. Naturally, the refereeing process will be lighter (typically one referee) than the PPCF publication.

Typically invited papers will be published in PPCF and contributed papers in JPCS.
Papers, invited (10-12 pages) and contributed (6-8 pages), have to follow the Latex guidelines and templates given in the following zip file: ioplatexguidelines.zip
The deadline for the paper is the week of the conference. Thus either you send the
paper before August 30, 2010, by email to Varenna-Lausanne”at”epfl.ch or you bring it to the registration desk during the conference.

The approval of ITER has started a new era in the field of magnetic confinement (Tokamak) fusion. The conference is the first appointment of the diagnostic community after the approval of ITER, and it will focus on:

1. encouragement and information of young scientists ;
2. new concepts on diagnostics  for burning plasma;
3. selected topics on diagnostics for ITER : known difficult areas especially, measurements
of fast particles,  divertor diagnostics, plasma facing components,dust;

Foreward look to requirements on diagnostics  for DEMO.
The programme will include tutorial lectures, invited oral presentations and posters.
