Abstract

The 1984 ICPP, held in Lausanne, Switzerland, is the third biennial conference of the series "International conferences on plasma physics". A complete spectrum of current plasma physics from fusion devices to interstellar space was presented, even if most of the papers were of direct interest for fusion. The conference stressed the important role that "basic plasma physics" must play in fusion research. Recent theoretical and experimental developments in tokamaks, stellarators, mirrors, reversed field pinches, and other fusion devices were reported. The successful operation of two newly built large tokamak devices, JET and TFTR, hold the promise that a host of new results of decisive importance for fusion research will become available in the next few years.
