SPPT — 27th Symposium on Plasma Physics and Technology
ID
634692
Dates
20 Jun 2016 - 23 Jun 2016
Location
Prague, Czech Republic
Abstract
The Symposium on Plasma Physics and Technology has a long tradition and is usually held biennially. This will be the 27th Symposium. It was originally founded for the presentation of results of the Institute of Plasma Physics of the Czechoslovak Academy of Sciences (IPP CAS) in 1967. Since 1969 it has gradually become a Czechoslovak forum in this branch and many famous foreign scientists have made presentations. Since 1993 it has been held in co-operation with the Department of Physics, Faculty of Electrical Engineering of the Czech Technical University (FEE CTU) in Prague. Last symposia were granted the label European Physical Society Sponsored Conference.

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.

PSE 2016 — 15th International Conference on Plasma Surface Engineering
ID
783167
Dates
12 Sep 2016 - 16 Sep 2016
Location
Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany
Abstract
The 15th International Conference on Plasma Surface Engineering will be held, as usually, in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany, from Monday, September 12 to Friday, September 16, 2016. The biennial PSE conference series is organized by the European Joint Committee on Plasma and Ion Surface Engineering.

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.
