Summer School: The school would bring together leading researchers in the field of Plasma Physics to give lecture on their specialties to advanced graduate students, postgraduate students and young scientists in the form of a one-week intensive course.

Scientists experienced in other disciplines who have recently entered the fields of plasma physics or nuclear fusion will also benefit from the school, which provides an overview of the various inter­connected research domains and describes the latest developments. Gradu­ates and teachers of science are welcome, as is anyone with an interest in the subject.

The 40-minute key lectures will be given by senior physicists in their field. Participants (PhD, Master students and young scientists) are strongly encouraged to present their own work during the afternoon sessions as 20-minute oral presentations or as posters.

Workshop: We are pleased to offer also a range of workshops. During the 3rd IWSSPP a Special Session on Plasmas for Environmental Issues was organised. That puts the beginning of a series in Workshops on Plasmas for Environmental Issues, now as a satellite meeting on the European Physical Society Conference on Plasma Physics.

The topic of the Workshop for this year session is Education on Plasma and Fusion.

Attendance at the workshop sessions is open to all participants in the IWSSPP.
