Conference-Service.com offers, as part of our business activities, a directory of upcoming scientific and technical meetings. The calendar is published for the convenience of conference participants and we strive to support conference organisers who need to publish their upcoming events. Although great care is being taken to ensure the correctness of all entries, we cannot accept any liability that may arise from the presence, absence or incorrectness of any particular information on this website. Always check with the meeting organiser before making arrangements to participate in an event!
Meeting organisers can submit meetings free of charge for inclusion into the listing.
• Fundamental aspects, structure and spectroscopy
• Collisions with electrons, ions, atoms and molecules
• Interaction with clusters, surfaces and solids
• Interaction with photons and plasmas
• Strong field and ultrafast processes
• Production, experimental developments and applications
With a continuously growing interest in the preceding PSE events, with more than 750 participants from all over the world in 2014, PSE is a well-established and leading forum in the field of plasma as well as ion- and particle-beam assisted surface modification and thin film technologies.
PSE provides an opportunity to present recent progress in research and development and industrial applications. Its topics span a wide range from fundamentals such as e.g. process modelling and simulation of plasmas or thin film physics, through experimental studies which establish the relationships between process parameters and the structural and functional properties of modified surfaces and/or thin films, towards the application in industrial production.
With numerous industrial exhibitors and an exceptionally large fraction of participants from industry (34% in 2014), a special feature of PSE is the intimate and vivid interaction between those being involved in basic research and those who have to meet the rapidly increasing demands in industrial production.
PSE 2016 will be dedicated to “Plasma, Surface and Mobility”. The importance of plasma on the modification of materials surfaces and their impact on the diversity of areas of mobility such as transportation, low CO2 emission, improved engines efficiency or quality of life, will be enhanced in many scientific and technological contributions allocated to the conference topics. The more applied aspects with direct impact on the mobility for tomorrow will be discussed and addressed in the industrial workshop.
The conference will take place at the University of Messina, in the downtown of Messina, home of Sicilian Baroque style. The conference is co-organized by Messina University, Pisa University, Salento University, Center of Accelerators and Nuclear Analytical Methods and the ENEA Fusion Department.
Since 2000 the SPPT participants had the possibility to offer their original papers based on the SPPT contributions for publication in various journals (Czechoslovak Journal of Physics, European Physical Journal D, Acta Technica), since 2012 Acta Polytechnica and Plasma Physics and Technology.
The symposium is of the European importance. There will be about 150-200 participants.
