PhDiaFusion 2023

Artificial intelligence for plasma diagnostics and controlled Fusion

19 - 23 June,  Niepołomice Royal Castle, Poland

Organised by :     Institute of Nuclear Physics Polish Academy of Sciences (IFJ PAN),

                               Institute for Magnetic Fusion Research (IRFM) CEA, Cadarache, France

General information

Diagnostic measurements are essential in plasma experiments to infer the relevant plasma properties, both for physical interpretation and for real-time control. In modern fusion devices such as ITER, DEMO, or DONES neutron facility, the huge amount of generated data may require fast and efficient processes to infer the physical quantities with a reasonable computational cost. The use of artificial intelligence can be of a great help to achieve this goal, by feeding learning systems with experimental data and/or simulation results.

The 2023 edition of the PhDiaFusion Summer School of Plasma Diagnostics will cover the diagnostics data processing, interpretation, validation and real-time control aspects with a focus on artificial intelligence methods.

Registration, abstract submission and payment

Abstract submission

All participants of the PhDiaFusion 2023 Summer School are kindly requested to submit a short abstract. Student presentation should not exceed 15 minutes including discussion (typically 12 minutes of presentation and 3 minutes of discussion).

The invited lecturers are kindly requested to prepare presentation up to 40 minutes (including discussion). In addition, the invited lecturers may also prepare a tutorial up to 1/2 hour (including discussion).

The deadline for abstract submission is 29.05.2023.

The abstracts will be published in the Book of Abstracts which will be distributed among the school participants. For abstract preparation please follow the instructions given in phdia_abstract_template.doc file. The abstract prepared in doc format should be sent by e-mail to address. Please include your first and last name in the title of file. The abstracts submitted by students will be evaluated by the Scientific Committee.

  • The selected papers will be, after a peer-review process, published in a special issue of Journal of Fusion Energy, Springer.
  • A special prize will be awarded to the best student presentations

Preliminary agenda of the event. The detailed one will be announced soon.


The Royal Castle is located in the small community of Niepołomice, 25 km from the centre of Kraków. The School venue is easily accessible from Kraków via the A4 motorway and/or national road 75. The distance from the John Paul II International Airport Kraków-Balice is 40 km with a driving time of about 30 minutes. 

The village borders the Niepołomice Forest natural area which used to be the favourite hunting ground of the kings of Poland. It is located close to the banks of the meandering Vistula (polish: Wisła) river. Typical late September weather in Poland is mild and sunny, inviting outdoor recreation.
