Transp User Group (TUG) Meeting 2015
Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory
March 23-24, 2015

Purpose of the Meeting

The purpose of this TRANSP User's Group meeting is to discuss with present and potential TRANSP users and developers from around the world the present and future use of the code, including short- and long-term upgrades to the physics modules as well as code modernization and framework. Specifically, we would like to find out what upgrades would make TRANSP more valuable to the international community, including ITER, for both analysis and prediction. Furthermore, we would like to identify and encourage development external to PPPL that could be used to enhance the TRANSP capabilities. Our objective is to make the code more powerful and user-friendly.

We are planning to have at least one presentation from each institution, discussing their use of TRANSP and their short- and long-term needs and desires. In order to keep the meeting to two days, we may need to combine multiple presentations into one. 

There will be ample time for discussion to identify common needs and plans for enhancing TRANSP.  The input from the TUG meeting will be used as input to a TRANSP strategic 
plan, which is under development. The strategic plan will focus on the short- and long-term deliverables that will be useful to the user community.


Meeting Format

The meeting will be held over two days, with remote participation enabled.

The first part of the first day will consist of talks and discussion focused on code frameworks. The discussion of physics uses and needs will begin later in the first day and will continue on the second day.
