E. Sindoni, Honorary President – Prof. Giuseppe Gorini, President

1) Anomalous Transport (Turbulence, Coherent Structures, Microinstabilities)
2) RF Heating and Current Drive
3) Non Axisymmetric Configurations
4) Macroinstabilities and Magnetic Reconnections
5) Theoretical Aspects of Plasma-Edge Physics and Divertors
6) Theoretical issues related to burning plasmas
Presentations discussing ITER-related topics are particularly welcomed

In addition to invited survey papers, contributed papers (poster only) will be selected on the basis of a one-page abstract. The LateX templates required for the papers can be used for the submitted abstracts as well (see below).
Abstracts should be sent in pdf format, file name as “NAME_Varenna18_abstr.pdf”, by June 15, 2018 to:
O. SAUTER, SPC/EPFL, Station 13, PPB-Ecublens,

As in 2012/14/16, papers will be published in a refereed journal with IOP. The journal will be Plasma Phys. Contr. Fusion (PPCF), for the main papers, and Journal of Physics Conference Series (JPCS) for the other papers.
– The papers published in PPCF will follow the usual refereeing process of this journal and will be published as a cluster of papers related to the Varenna-Lausanne Theory of Fusion Plasmas 2018 Conference.
Follow the guidelines and then LaTeX templates. Note that YOU NEED TO PROVIDE THE PDF PAPER BY FRIDAY 24 AUGUST 2018, so that we can organize the refereeing process in due time.
– 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. Follow the guidelines and the LateX templates. Note that YOU NEED TO PROVIDE THE PDF PAPER BY FRIDAY 24 AUGUST 2018, so that we can organize the refereeing process in due time.
When submitting the paper, the author can propose a publication in PPCF or JPCS, however the final decision is under the responsibility of the scientific committee. Typically invited papers will be published in PPCF and contributed papers in JPCS.
Papers, invited (typically 10-12 pages) and contributed (typically 6-8 pages), have to follow the Latex guidelines and templates provided by PPCF and by JPCS.
The deadline for the paper is the week before the conference.
Thus send the paper before August 24, 2018, by email to Varenna-Lausanne_at_epfl.ch

Registration fee: 500 EUROS (students 300 EUROS) should be paid by bank transfer before July 27, 2018 to:
