ANNOUNCEMENT & CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
The Technological Plasma Workshop (TPW) is a UK-based forum in the science and technology of plasmas and gas discharges. Since the EPSRC Technological Plasma Initiative in 1997, technological plasmas have found new applications in diverse fields ranging from nano-science, through biomedicine and environment, to space exploration.
Collaboration between academic and industrial communities is now the norm and there are new and exciting career prospects for younger scientists and engineers. To support a full realisation of these opportunities, TPW aims to foster academic-industry collaboration and to engage young plasma scientists with a scientific programme anchored by leading plasma scientists.
Running this meeting beside an Industrial exhibition and with other scientific meetings in the Vacuum Symposium is exciting for delegates and presents an excellent synergy.
The workshop comprises invited talks, contributed presentations and a poster session. The programme allows time for delegates to network with others and to visit the exhibition. Abstracts are invited on, but not limited to, the following topics: Non-Thermal plasmas, Thermal plasmas, Microwave Generation and Plasma Interactions, Plasma modelling, Plasma diagnostics, Plasma sources, Biomedical and Environmental Applications of Plasmas, Industrial and Commercial Plasmas.
