The COST Action MP1208 aims at developing a scientific community in Europe working in Inertial Confinement Fusion and High Energy Density Physics. The Action is complementary and synergic to several initiatives going on in Europe, in particular the construction of Laser Megajoule and Petal in France (LMJ/PETAL facility), which will open to the European academic community for civilian research in 2017. Link to the official COST office website and action.
