Scientific Programme

The ICPIG covers nearly all aspects of phenomena in ionized gases. It explores the fundamentals of all kinds of plasmas, electrical discharges and their applications, such as plasma semiconductor processing, surface treatment and thin film technology, plasma medicine, environmental protection and pollution control, light sources and gaseous lasers, atmospheric and astrophysical plasmas and low temperature edge fusion plasmas. Detailed information on the conference topics is provided here. The scientific programme will consist of 34 invited lectures, 10 general and 24 topical, together with lectures from the winners of the von Engel & Franklin Prize and the IUPAP Early Career Award in Plasma Physics. Two special sessions and poster presentations will complete the scientific programme.
