We are pleased to invite you to participate in the 13th International Workshop on Fast Ignition of Fusion Targets, taking place from September 14th - 18th 2014, in The Queen's College, Oxford. The workshop, held every two years, brings together the leading international researchers in the field of Fast Ignition Inertial Confinement Fusion (ICF).

This workshop will continue the series of successful International Workshops on Fast Ignition, the most recent of which were held in Napa, California (2012), Shanghai, China (2010), Crete (2008), and Boston, USA (2006). The program will include oral and poster presentations as well as discussion sessions focused on the current status of Fast Ignition research and mapping out strategic directions going forward. The meeting will follow the same informal, interactive atmosphere of past workshops in the series.

Topics include:
  • Electron-based fast ignition schemes
  • Proton/ion-based fast ignition schemes
  • Integrated target designs
  • Relativistic intensity laser-plasma interaction physics
  • Fast electron generation and characterization
  • Fast electron transport in dense plasma
  • Intense particle beam acceleration
  • Implosion physics
  • Innovative concepts (including shock ignition etc.)
