3) Interaction of heavy ions beams with targets, deceleration of heavy ions in dense plasma

4) Targets for ion-driven fusion, possibilities of increasing of homogeneity of target irradiation

5) Physics of Rayleigh-Taylor, Richmeyer-Meshkov and Kelvin-Helmholzov instability

6) Shock a impact ignition

7) Fuel burn in different regimes of inertial fusion (ICF)

8) Optical diagnostic methods in ICF

9) X-ray diagnostic methods in ICF

10) Electron and ion diagnostic methods in ICF

11) Neutron diagnostics in ICF

12) IFE reactors (IFE - Inertial Fusion for Energy production)

13) Hybrid fusion-fission reactors and radioactive waste disposal
