About SWIP

The Southwestern Institute of Physics (SWIP), established in 1965, is one of the largest institutes in China dedicated to fusion energy research. It employs more than 1700 professionals including more than 1100 scientific and technological personnel. SWIP has made significant contributions to the development of our understanding of fusion physics. SWIP has built and operated 22 experimental devices, including 2 medium-sized tokamaks (HL-1 and HL-1M) and the HL-2A tokamak. A new tokamak, HL-2M, is now under construction, to support the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER), CFETR and next-step devices in addressing critical issues including burning plasma physics, divertor physics, and high heat flux components, etc. What’s more, SWIP is taking a very active role in fabricating ITER first wall, shielding blanket, magnet support, etc., and has made great progress in support of the ITER project.

The Center for Fusion Science (CFS) is the most important part of SWIP. The work of CFS is research and development for the realization of fusion energy. CFS consists of 8 research divisions and 3 research centers. The main research conducted in CFS is magnetic confinement fusion, including fusion plasma theory, plasma diagnostics and experimental plasma physics, fusion technology, fusion materials, and scientific and technological information.

What is CTF's Goal?

The first Chengdu Theory Festival (CTF) aims to promote advanced research dialogue and education at the cutting edge of research in theoretical fusion plasma physics and related fields. It is developed in the spirit of the Festival de Theorie which has run biannually in Aix-en-Provence, France since 2001.

An aim of the program is to put young scientists, postdocs and PhD students (international students are welcome) in contact with leading researchers worldwide, in a collaborative and informal environment in which current ideas are discussed in depth. We will take master students or even undergraduates, if advisors attest to their exceptional ability. To this end, we hope to have as output a book of articles on the lectures, and that the contents will be produced by small group collaborations between the lecturers and selected student scientific secretaries. An essential part of the program is contributions from leading scholars from outside the magnetic fusion community.

Please acknowledge Chengdu Theory Festival in publications resulting from and related to this conference.
