Second HEDP FES CPP Workshop


We are pleased to announce that the 2nd workshop on High Energy Density Physics for the Fusion Energy Sciences Community Planning Process will be held at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory in Menlo Park, CA on November 13 and 14, 2019.  This workshop will include a summary of the 1st workshop, refinement and discussion of initiatives, breakout sessions by expert groups, and forums on cross-cutting issues that affect all topical areas within FES.

At the webinars we will be presenting the draft "tent-pole" initiatives, which will be discussed in detail at the 2nd HEDP workshop in preparation for the all-FES community "Snowmass" meeting to be held in January. Below is the draft list of these initiatives chosen by the HEDP subcommittee based on input from the first workshop, and which we believe encompasses the breadth of HEDP.  All of these initiatives will include experimental, diagnostic, and modeling aspects, together forming a bold vision for the future of HEDP within Fusion Energy Sciences.
