Scope and Topics

This conference continues a series of plasma physics conferences organized by the European Physical Society (EPS) covering the wide field of plasma physics, from nuclear fusion research to low temperature plasmas, as well as space and astrophysical plasmas. The official conference language is English.


Magnetic Confinement Fusion

  • Edge and plasma-wall interactions
  • Turbulence and transport
  • Equilibrium and MHD
  • Scenario development and control
  • Diagnostics
  • Heating and fuelling
  • Burning plasma issues

Beam Plasmas & Inertial Fusion

  • Inertial confinement and high gain target design
  • Hydrodynamics and instabilities
  • Ultra-intense laser interaction and fast ignition
  • High energy density matter
  • Inertial fusion energy drivers and reactors
  • Laser and ion beam coupling with plasma
  • Laser and plasma based accelerators
  • Radiation and particle sources

Low Temperature and Dusty Plasmas

  • Discharge modelling
  • Plasma kinetics
  • Diagnostics (including LIBS)
  • Plasma processing and applications
  • Basic processes in dusty plasmas
  • Strongly coupled plasmas

Basic Plasmas & Space & Astrophysical Plasmas

  • Solar, space and astrophysical plasmas
  • Laboratory astrophysics
  • Fundamental plasma physics
  • Waves and turbulence in laboratory plasmas

Special Sessions

The EPS2015 program will have a number of special sessions namely

  • joined sessions of Basics and Astrophysical Plasmas with the Low Temperature Plasmas (on Tuesday, June 23rd and Wednesday, June 24th)
  • parallel sessions on Magnetic Confinement (on Tuesday, June 23rd and Thursday, June 25th)
  • joined session between Magnetic Confinement and Basic and Astrophysical Plasmas (on Friday, June 26th).

Proceedings and Papers

Submission for the conference proceedings – 4 pages for contributed orals and posters – are open from 8th to 19th June. For submission and formatting details and the link to the Online Conference System (OCS) used to submit the papers see the paper submission page. A confirmation will be send upon reception of a submission. The proceedings will be made available on the web in due time after the conference. Invited speakers are welcome to submit a paper – 8 pages for ordinary invited and 12 for plenary invited talks – directly to Plasma Physics and Controlled Fusion until 26th June.
