We cordially invite you to participate in the 32nd Symposium on Fusion Technology (SOFT 2022), which will be held in Dubrovnik, Croatia, from 18 to 23 September 2022.
The event is organised by the Ruđer Bošković Institute (RBI), Croatia's leading scientific institute in natural and biomedical sciences as well as marine and environmental research.
The biennial symposium on fusion technology is the most important conference in this field in Europe, bringing together scientists, engineers, industry representatives and exhibitors from all over the world and focusing on the latest developments in fusion experiments and activities. SOFT includes invited, oral and poster presentations, as well as industry and R&D exhibitions. SOFT 2022 will be held in Dubrovnik, Croatia, one of the most magnificent fortress cities in the world and undoubtedly one of Europe's most popular destinations at present.
Although it is difficult to predict what the situation will be around the world at COVID -19 later this year, under the current circumstances and taking into account the recommendations and guidelines for hosting major events, and especially with the safety of all participants in mind, we would like to inform you that we plan to host SOFT2022 as a hybrid event, where the number of participants who can meet in person at the venue will be limited.
Unfortunately, due to the limitations of COVID -19, we will have to reduce a conference that normally hosts over 1000 attendees to about half that number for in-person attendance. However, we will ensure that all participants who cannot come to Dubrovnik in person will have the opportunity to present their research and follow all conference events via our online platform. Please follow the conference website for the latest updates.
We look forward to seeing you at SOFT 2022.
