Workshop on Transients

Chair: Charles Greenfield (General Atomics)
Co-Chair: Raffi Nazikian (Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory)
DOE FES Liaison: Mark Foster

We will continue to accept white papers through Friday, April 24. Authors should strive for clarity and brevity - you want to give the sub-panels information they can use. We suggest the following elements to be included:
  1. What is the proposed research?
  2. Describe the background of your proposal
    • Progress since ReNeW
    • Opportunities; national and international context
  3. Anticipated results and impact on future activities
The suggested length of your white paper is 2 pages. Please click here to submit your white paper.

This is the final list - at this point we have cut off white paper submission as the extended deadline has passed.

The white papers will be made public as soon as I receive permission, since many of them have not yet been cleared by their institutions for public release. This list is being posted so you can check if your white paper was received.
