ICFRM-18

SCOPE and TOPICS

Scope

ICFRM (International Conference on Fusion Reactor Materials) is the conference series that is the major forum for the exchange of information based on the research and development of fusion reactor materials. Overcoming material issues are the key to the realization of fusion energy. The scope of the conference ranges from fundamental materials science to search for engineering materials in-service performance. The papers will be presented as invited and contributed oral and poster presentations. A special program will be planned to encourage young scientists.
