The 11th Frontiers in Low Temperature Plasma Diagnostics
May 24th—May 28th 2014
IGESA, Porquerolles Island, Hyères, Var, France
The 11th biennial Frontiers in Low Temperature Plasma Diagnostics (FLTPD) workshop is being organised by the PIIM laboratory (Aix-Marseille University and the CNRS). It will be held on the beautiful Mediterranean island of Porquerolles, approximately 15 min by boat from the mainland. It will take place from Sunday 24th to Thursday 28th May, 2015 at the IGESA conference centre.
FLTPD workshop is a European event which brings together scientists working on low-temperature plasmas to present their recent results, focusing on original diagnostic techniques. The workshop is limited to approximately 80 participants from academic, research and industrial institutions. The program consists of expert presentations from around 10 invited speakers, topical talks selected by the International Scientific Committee from submitted abstracts, and poster contributions. As a rule, all participants will stay at the conference site and are expected to present a contribution. It is an important and fruitful opportunity for young plasma scientists to share and discuss the latest developments in plasma diagnostics with the experts in the field. This year, specials sessions devoted to diagnostics of electrical discharges with liquids will be jointly organised with COST Action TD1208 .
The scientific program of FLTPD will start on the morning of Monday the 25th and will finish on Thursday the 28th at noon. The workshop and poster sessions will take place in the morning and late afternoon/evening. Following the tradition of FLTPD meetings, all afternoons will be free for scientific exchange and discussions.
This workshop is the continuation of a very successful biennial series which began in 1995 at Les Houches (France). The idea of starting this series of workshops was born in a discussion between Frieder Döbele, Bill Graham and Nader Sadeghi when travelling together from Bar Harbor, USA (after the 6th LAPD) to Montreal, Canada in October 1993. It became evident that a European meeting that could bring together experts in the field of low-temperature plasma diagnostics was necessary in order to create the possibility to share the knowledge of these plasma diagnostics with new generations of scientists.
