Post by Werner Engel » Mon Sep 04, 2017 8:09 pm

Hi Fusioneers!

Who would like to attend a European meeting in Vienna (Austria)?
Date: Sat. 14th October, starting at 14:00.
Location: Details will follow

Please reply until 25th Sept.

Waiting for your feedback,
Werner

PS: The suggested date is shortly after my personal visit to ITER - so I hope to show also some very interesting and brand new pictures.

Hi Werner!

I'd love to attend, but I probably can't at this time as getting away during school-time may be difficult. Definitely open to any future meetings in the area.

Werner,

I do hope you can get some takers on your invitation above. Meetings of fusioneers are very special. Friendships are made and faces are attached to many past posts.

Hi Werner,

I would be interested in attending, too. Not sure though if I will be in Vienna on the date you have in mind.

In case others have the same problem: have you thought about setting up a "virtual" meeting via Google Hangouts or a similar platform? Obviously, it would be less fun than a chat in person, but still more direct than text-based communications here on the forums...

Cheers,
Philipp

I like the idea of live streaming. A few years back I wanted to start streaming the yearly HEAS from Richard Hull's so everybody could log on and see what was happening live. Never got too it but wireless routers are a dime a dozen now. Maybe Richard would allow us to use his internet connection for such activities.

Not trying to hijack your thread but rather encourage it. I will be in the EU in the next few months but not at the time of your meeting so I cannot attend live but would be interested in a short live version for a short time during your face to face meeting.

I have traveled to many fusor builders and been to and prodded for other HEAS meetings to correspond with my travels. (thanks Jon. R!). They have all been enjoyable and rewarding from both a technical and a personal relationship stand point. I highly encourage it.

Hi,

I would like to be there, and tell something about setting up a monster vacuum chamber...

How many people so far?

-Jeroen.

I think we could also postpone the meeting to a day where most of the possible attendees are available. Thinking about January 2018.

Werner,

A good idea.
Perhaps you could set up a doodle, to investigate for the best possible date.

Hope this results in a successful meeting there - maybe this will start a dedicated fusor meeting in Europe every year like here (thank you again, Richard!): that would be both exciting and a great contribution to fusor research and growth.

Re: Invitation to "European Fusor Meeting" -> NEW DATES!!

Post by Werner Engel » Wed Nov 01, 2017 2:32 pm

It took some time, but finally I made it ;-)

Please let’s agree on the date first. I will then come back to you regarding accommodation, venue and further details.
Depending on the number off attendees you can also give a short presentation of your fusor efforts, findings and future ideas. I can do an actual update about the international ITER-Fusion-project as I visited the site a few weeks ago. Please give feedback regarding this break out session.

Awaiting your registrations!
Werner
