      ABSTRACT = {This paper focuses on a study of the principal operation aspects of standard ICRF heating antennas in the ion cyclotron wall conditioning (ICWC) mode: (i) ability of the antenna to ignite the cleaning discharge safely and reliably in different gases including those most likely to be used in ITER {\"i}申?? He, H2, D2 and their mixtures, (ii) the antenna capacity to couple a large fraction of the RF generator power ($>$50\%) to low density ({\"i}申?{\"i}申1016{\"i}申??1018 m{\"i}申??3) plasmas and (iii) the RF power absorption schemes aimed at improved RF plasma homogeneity and enhanced conditioning effect. The ICWC discharge optimization in terms of RF plasma wave excitation/absorption resulted in successful simulation of the conditioning scenarios for ITER operation at full field (JET) and half-field (TEXTOR, TORE SUPRA, ASDEX Upgrade).},
