This new prize was established in 2008 by the EPS Plasma Physics Division. The prize is not awarded for cumulative career achievements or successful management and leadership. To foster collaborative research, it is allowed to nominate a group of up to three scientists.
Nominations for the EPS Hannes Alfvén Prize 2017 “For outstanding contributions to plasma physics” are now open.
The prize was established by the EPS Plasma Physics Division in 2000 and is awarded for research achievements which have either already shaped the field of plasma physics or have demonstrated the potential to do so in future. To recognize collaborative research, a group of up to three individual scientists may be nominated.
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.
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.
