International Conference on


Villa Monastero, Varenna, Italy

September 6 -10, 2021


The Conference strongly encourages participation of young scientists.

The conference is organized on-site.

Safety precautions recommended by the health authorities will be implemented. 

Since the spaces can be used with limited capacity, we are organizing the possibility of participating remotely to all scientific sessions.

The programme will include tutorial lectures and invited oral presentations. Poster sessions will be replaced by short orals (10 min).



Proceedings will be published following a process of peer review, in the proceedings section of JINST, Journal of Instrumentation.

The conference will focus on diagnostics systems, related technologies, and control systems for ITER and in general for machines aimed at the production of fusion power. The context is the operation of ITER and satellites (including JT-60SA, DTT and stellarators) and the start of a design of DEMO fusion power plant. New diagnostics realized inside the worldwide programme in support of fusion are included.



Specific areas of concentration include: 

a. Diagnostic systems: solutions and technologies for ITER

b. Diagnostics and controls for ITER: machine protection, plasma scenarios,

    burn control

c. New concepts of diagnostics for burning plasmas (Including JET DTE2)

d. Diagnostics for devices in operation in the decades of ITER (including   

    JT60SA, DTT, Wendelstein-7X, SPARC)

e. Forward look at requirements for diagnostics, controls and technologies

    of DEMO

f. diagnostics specific for fusion-fission hybrid reactors

g. Diagnostics developments in the worldwide fusion programme relevant

    for fusion reactors including data production, analysis and validation.
