A long-range plan has been created by the US Department of Fusion Energy Sciences Advisory Committee (FESAC) to accelerate the development of fusion energy and advance plasma science within the US program. This plan is based on substantial input from the research community, which conveyed a wealth of creative ideas and its passion to accelerate fusion energy development and advance plasma science over an intensive two-year process.

With the recent detection of gravitational waves and the photograph' of a black hole horizon, the dynamics of these objects and their environment has moved center stage in astrophysics. The conversion of gravitational energy into electromagnetic radiation by accretion of plasma flows onto the black hole is the crucial energy source producing the picture of the horizon of the black hole. It is also the cause of the acceleration of giant plasma jets to relativistic velocities.

In the development of new technologies, many researchers and companies run into heat transfer and heat dissipation problems. During this ILO-net Symposium, three speakers will outline the challenges the industry faces in solving these thermal problems. Also the collaboration with the scientific community to arrive at solutions is highlighted. Speakers Annamarie Stanton, Hardware Architect at Topic Embedded Systems
Thermal Aspects in Electronic Hardware Design
