Title information

Professor Norman Rostoker passed away on Christmas day, 2014. By January 2015, officials at UCI (University of California, Irvine) had been contacted about sponsoring the Norman Rostoker Memorial Symposium, to be held around the time of Norman’s birthday (August 16) in the summer of 2015. About 150 people from around the world attended the Symposium, including Norman’s family and friends, scientists, and journalists. Two Nobel Laureates — friends of Norman's — presented tributes to him. The Symposium showcased Norman’s lifework, in particular his breakthrough ideas on fusion and plasma-based accelerators. These proceedings not only commemorate his work, but also serve as a significant base camp for the future of the science of plasma-driven accelerators and accelerator-driven fusion.

These proceedings will be of interest to: His friends around the world, including family members; scientists who work (or worked) on fusion and plasma-based accelerators; scientists and policy makers who are interested in energy and climate change; scientific historians who are interested in the convergence of ideas and works that Norman Rostoker touched.
