This article contains abstracts of several conference papers on the subject of fusion technology. In the session "Safety and the Environment", the following topics were covered: - safety aspacts in the design of ITER, - consequences of loss of coolant, coolant flow, and vacuum for ITER, and - doses incurred on accidental release of tritium. The session on "Components and Materials" discussed the following: - life of ITER-divertor plates, - first practical tests on divertor mock-ups, - thermal fatigue behaviour of silicon carbides, - radiation damage to metallic materials and its simulation by neutron bombardment, - creep fatigue in martensitic fine steel 1.4914 (MANET), and - helium-induced brittleness in austenitic and martensitic structural materials.
