The following is a list of some major annual conferences, including
(where I have the information) the sponsoring organization, the
name of the conference, the typical abbreviation for the

the conference, and some comments. (The current list was
provided by Art Carlson; I've reformatted it somewhat.)
* American Physical Society Division of Plasma Physics:
Annual Meeting. (APS, or APS-DPP). Fall. About 1500 contributors.
Largest and probably most important conference, covers all of
* European Physical Society:
European Conference on Controlled Fusion and
... Plasma Physics (odd years)
... Plasma Heating (even years)

The European equivalent of APS, covers all of plasma physics.
* International Atomic Energy Agency:
International Conference on Plasma Physics and Controlled
Nuclear Fusion Research. (IAEA). Fall. Attendence restricted.

Lots of surface physics and technology.
* International Sherwood Fusion Theory Conference
Probably the most important fusion _theory_ conference.
(From the secret code name for the original US fusion program.)
