Description:

The Office of Fusion Energy Sciences (OFES) of the
Office of Science (SC), U.S.
Department of Energy (DOE), announces its intention to conduct a special
review
of the research in innovative approaches to fusion energy sciences. All
university or industry individuals or groups planning to submit
applications
for renewal or new funding in Fiscal Year 2006 should submit in response to

this Notice. In addition, the OFES requests the following projects to
submit
renewal applications as part of this special review: (1) The Helically
Symmetric Experiment (HSX) at the University of Wisconsin - Madison and (2)
The
Levitated Dipole Experiment (LDX) at MIT and Columbia University. Mail
reviews
and a panel review are being planned for this special review. This special
review is necessitated in part by a reduction of funding (of approximately
$2M
per year) in the program. If additional funds should become available
later,
which would reverse the anticipated ICC funding shortfall, the two special
projects, namely HSX and LDX, would then be exempted from the final review.


The OFES Innovative Confinement Concepts (ICC) Program has the long-term
performance measure of demonstrating enhanced fundamental understanding of
magnetic confinement and improved basis for future burning plasma
experiments
through research on magnetic confinement configuration optimization. The
program is focused on resolving key scientific issues and determining the
confinement characteristics of a range of attractive confinement
configurations. Applications for research on the large fusion facilities
(DIII-D, Alcator C-Mod, NSTX, MST, NCSX), or initiatives in Inertial Fusion

Energy and High Energy Density Physics should not be submitted in response
to
this notice.

OFES may also solicit applications from time to time under separate
announcements of Initiatives to support coordinated, goal-directed
community
efforts. These Initiatives will be funded to achieve specific programmatic
and
scientific aims and will be subject to requirements that are different from

those of this notice. Such grants, if funded, will be subject to periodic
reviews of progress.
