Request for White Paper Submission
The FESAC Strategic Planning Panel invites all members of the fusion-research and plasma-science communities to submit a white paper expressing a particular scientific topic’s status and priorities, as updated from the 2007 Greenwald’s FESAC panel report on Priorities, Gaps, and Opportunities, and a separate white paper expressing that topic's associated initiatives, i.e., new and exciting topic sub-elements of a given program element.
This document will explain that both white papers should put the author's comments into the context of the mission of DOE-FES for all three program elements and, for the Foundations and the Long Pulse program elements, into the context of the Gaps as analyzed in Chapter 4 of the 2007 Greenwald-Panel report and the first two Challenges on page 9 of E. Synakowski's 9 April presentation "The charge for advice on strategic planning". White papers will be accepted until 1 September 2014. Please submit your written submissions via e-mail simultaneously to Mark Koepke (SP Panel) and to Mark London (USBPO) by using the email address SPwhitepapers@burningplasma.org. All of the received white papers will be posted or linked for public viewing on this web site.
