The 26th Symposium on Plasma Physics and Technology [SPPT 14] will take place from 16 to 19 June 2014 in Prague, Czech Republic.

This conference, with its first edition dating back to 1967, serves as a meeting point for researchers to present and discuss the latest advances in Plasma Physics as well as the state-of-the-art technology developed for this field.

SPPT 14 covers broad range of Plasma Physics topics, namely:

  • Tokamaks and other magnetic confinement devices;
  • Short lived plasmas (plasma focus, z-pinch, particle beam – plasma interaction, X-ray sources);
  • Laser plasma;
  • Non-equilibrium low temperature plasma;
  • Thermal plasmas;
  • Plasma technology;
  • Fundamental plasma physics;
  • Plasma theory and simulation.

The organisers kindly invite participants to submit their contributions in any of the symposium subjects. The deadline for abstract submission is 23 February 2014 and early bird registration is 14 April 2014.

The SPPT 14 will also grant financial support to up to three young researchers to attend the Symposium. For more information about the eligibility and the procedure for obtaining the financial support, please check the SPPT 14 website.

More general information about SPPT 14 is available on the Symposium website.

Editorial – Forward Physics!

I had the tremendous pleasure of watching the Nobel Prize announcement on October 8 during the Deutsche Physikalische Gesellschaft’s Live from Stockholm event held at the Magnus-Haus in Berlin. The assembly of high-level scientists and journalists made for a stimulating mix, and the delay prior to the announcement provided much opportunity for speculation and animated discussion!Of course, when it eventually was made, the announcement of the award to François Englert and Peter Higgs was met with tremendous pleasure. More details and background to this years’s Nobel Prize is given in another entry of this edition of e-EPS...
