MeVArc — 7th International Workshop on Mechanisms of Vacuum Arcs
20 May 2018 - 24 May 2018 • Old San Juan, Puerto Rico, United States
Vacuum arcs are a concern in nearly every vacuum electronic device, consequently they are present in a very wide range of applications. Sometimes they form the basis for device operation, but all too often they are the primary failure mode. Understanding the physical processes of a vacuum arc requires expertise from many disciplines – material science, surface physics, and plasma physics. Applications include high-voltage electronics, RF accelerators, and vacuum interrupters. The purpose of this workshop series is to bring together scientists and engineers from many different disciplines and application areas to discuss the latest efforts in understanding vacuum arcs. We cover theory, simulation and experiments.

SPPT — 28. symposium on plasma physics and technology
18 Jun 2018 - 21 Jun 2018 • Prague, Czech Republic
The Symposium on Plasma Physics and Technology has a long tradition and is usually held biennially. This will be the 28th 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.
