Top nuclear fusion experts to meet in Korea

Korea will host the upcoming 12th International Nuclear Fusion Symposium (ISFNT12), taking place in Jeju from Sept. 14-18.

PrintThe symposium, which will bring together 600 delegates – including 500 overseas experts in the field – is set to take place at ICC Jeju, the region’s largest convention center.

As such, the event will offer attendees a golden opportunity to discover the many attractions of Jeju, one of Korea’s most popular travel destinations.

Held every two years, ISFN brings together the world’s top nuclear fusion experts for knowledge-sharing, discussions, and exploration of the latest breakthroughs in the field. The week-long event will include a range of discussion topics, including “ITER (International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor) and Beyond,” a key example of cutting-edge nuclear energy.

Among the social programs organized for the event is the Sept. 14 Welcome Dinner, which will include examples of Jeju cuisine; meanwhile, the Sept. 17 Gala Dinner will offer a tailored fusion menu.

Delegates can also choose from six specially created tours of nearby Jeju attractions on Sept. 16, including the Jeju Folk Village, O’sulloc Green Tea Museum, and Saeseom Island, among others. Some tours also include hands-on experience programs, including horse riding and tangerine-picking.
