The main purpose of the school is to teach the basics of magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) and fusion researches. A bridge between the basic principles of MHD and the advanced researches on fusion will be founded. Fusion energy is the best hope of Mankind for a long-term clean energy solution; and this school will play a role in the increased interest among the scientific community in this area. Thus, we aim to enhance the understanding of the plasma dynamics in a magnetic and heated environment, that affects the yields of fusion events. With this respect, the school courses cover plasma sytems modelling, instabilities, convection, turbulence, nonlinear aspects of MHD, inertial electrostatic confinement (IEC) and plasma focus (PF) devices within 7 days.

We believe that this international school will enhance the interest on MHD and fusion studies and the students from undergraduate, M.Sc and Ph.D programs as well as the postgraduate researchers would have an opportunity to flourish their understandings and/or researches on the cutting-edge physics of the topics above. This event will also have a poster session and presentation covering the studies of students. Thereby, we hope that the students will have an opportunity to improve their researches on MHD and fusion further based on the suggestions. Another aim is to increase the interest on fusion, which is the most efficient energy type in universe. With this regard, the physics of inertial electrostatic confinement (IEC) and plasma focus (PF) devices is presented and future perspectives on these topics are considered.

The achievement of the courses will be evaluated by homeworks. In addition to the courses practises and simulation studies by using computers will be realized. The students will be able to apply the codes and other materials when they return to their country. . 

The outlines of the scientific programme can be stated in two main divisions:

1) Magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) problems,

2) Fusion modelling and plasma instabilities

In the first part, the basics of MHD is presented. The dynamic equations such as Navier-Stokes and conservation equations will be explained in a magnetic media. The effect of heating under a certain temperature gradient and basic instabilities will also be explained.

In the second part of the course, fusion modelling is handled. The use of the Lee model-based Universal Plasma Focus Laboratory Facility and the multi-component cathode modelling in an IEC is explained in detail. Some applications will also be realized in the intensive hands-on computer numerical experiments sessions.

The school lectures include a hands-on (computer simulation practice) fusion presentations. Therefore the participants are recommended to bring their notebook along. Note that the standart software should be available in your notebook. Please also note that strong candidates are recommended to apply for an oral presentation about their research in a short talk which will be selected by the application committee. In the application form please select the oral presentation option and send a brief abstract of your talk to ismfa2011@gmail.com as well as the IARS project coordination office at betul@fen.bilkent.edu.tr.
