The EPS Plasma Physics Division (EPS PPD) recognises outstanding research in plasma physics with several prizes.
The 43rd European Physical Society Conference on Plasma Physics will be held in Leuven, Belgium, from 4 to 8 July 2016.
This conference is part of the series of European Physical Society (EPS) conferences on plasma physics, encompassing the fields of fusion research, laser-plasma interaction and inertial confinement fusion, as well as dusty and low temperature plasmas.
The annual conference of the EPS Plasma Physics Division was held at CCB Lisbon from 22-26 June 2015. Hosted by the Instituto de Plasmas e Fusão Nuclear, organised by Bruno Gonçalves and scientifically chaired by Robert Bingham, it attracted 650 participants from 38 countries. The conference reflected the diverse topics that plasma physics is engaged with, ranging from magnetic confinement fusion, beam plasmas and inertial fusion or basic, space and astrophysical plasmas to low temperature and dusty plasmas, industrial plasmas and plasmas in medicine. Two evening sessions were arranged; the first one, on ITER, featured Professor Bernard Bigot, Director General of ITER, as guest speaker, while the second one was devoted to EUROfusion.
The 2015 Hannes Alfvén Prize will be awarded at EPS2015 to Nathaniel J. Fisch (PPL, USA) “for his contributions to the understanding of plasma wave‐particle interactions and their applications to efficiently driving currents with radio‐frequency waves”.
This conference continues a series of plasma physics conferences organized by the EPS Plasma Physics Division covering the wide field from nuclear fusion research to low temperature plasmas, as well as space and astrophysical plasmas.
The venue of the 42nd EPS conference will be in Centro Cultural de Belem, located between the famous Jerónimos Monastery and Belém Tower, in Lisbon, Portugal.
