Abstract

The Fifth Symposium on Current Trends in International Fusion Research was held on 24–29 March 2003 in Washington, USA in co-operation with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). Well-known scientists in their field of interest in fusion research were invited to present review papers. The presentations covered a broad range of fusion topics, including inertial confinement fusion, electrostatic confinement, various magnetic confinement schemes, and hybrid schemes. Each session chairman composed a session report, which John Pucadyil used to create this Report on the Fifth Symposium.
