Dear Colleagues:

The General Chair and the organizing committees would like to invite you to attend the 20th edition of the International Conference on Fusion Reactor Materials (ICFRM-20) to be held in Granada, Spain, from 24th through 29th October 2021. This event is organized by the Centro de Investigaciones, Energéticas, Medioambientales y Tecnológicas (CIEMAT), Spain in colaboration with other Spanish institutions.

ICFRM is the premier international congress and the leading platform for materials experts studying, developing and qualifying materials for fusion energy facilities from all over the world. This biennial conference focuses on fusion materials, both structural, functional and superconductors, including irradiation effects, materials science technologies, and cutting-edge research.

The ICFRM-20 will include plenary lectures, invited and contributed oral presentations, as well as poster sessions. In addition, there will be pre-conference tutorial lectures and the conference will be open to various satellite meetings by different organizers. As host, we are looking forward to welcome you to Granada, one of the most beautiful natural environments in Spain with a rich historical past, which shall be propitious for interesting and inspiring discussions, interactions and science.




COVID-19 repercussions:

In spite of ongoing uncertainties related to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Local Organizing Committee and the General Chair are working hard to assure a conference to be held on site in Granada, Spain.  The main focus is on a safe (from the health point of view) and interesting (from the scientific point of view) event.

Nevertheless, to be prepared for any future development and risk mitigation the Organizing Committee in parallel is working on options to make the 20th International Conference on Fusion Reactor Materials feasible and available online.

With the spirit and in continuity of four decades of ICFRM conference series the goal is  that the entire fusion materials scientific community has an opportunity to present, share and discuss any important issues and progress made during the previous two years.
