27th IEEE Symposium On Fusion Engineering

4 – 8 June  2017
Shanghai, China

Join us in Shanghai for SOFE-2017!
In 2017, the IEEE Symposium on Fusion Engineering (SOFE) will move outside the United States for the first time in its 52-year history. The 27th SOFE will be held in Shanghai, one of China’s most vibrant and cosmopolitan cities. The decision to go to China recognizes the rapid growth in fusion research and advanced engineering in that country, and the growing participation of Chinese researchers in SOFE in recent years.

Registration and Abstract submission are now OPEN!
Abstract submission closes:  17 February 2017
Early registration closes:  24 March 2017
