Invited Speakers

From the Local Organising Committee:


We are pleased that so many distinguished experts from the world plasma and fusion community have agreed to anchor the agenda with plenary and invited talks on topics at the forefront of plasma physics.  We hope that the community will further strengthen the conference with excellent contributed papers.
