The European Conference on Plasma Diagnostics (ECPD) is an event taking place every two years aiming at bringing together scientists & engineers working on plasma diagnostics for magnetic confinement fusion, inertial fusion, beam plasmas, low-temperature and industrial plasmas as well as basic and astrophysical plasmas.
The fifth edition of the Conference will be held at Rethymno city in the island of Crete, Greece at a time when the fusion developments are stronger than ever worldwide, boosted by the active collaboration of academic researchers and innovation partners, bringing new ideas for the exploration of innovative fusion plasma diagnostics. Evolving rapidly from ideas to proof-of-principle demonstration, aiming at the conceptual design of reactors for the production of electricity, plasma diagnostics is a thriving aspect of science and engineering. In addition Low-Temperature and Industrial Plasmas as well as Basic and Astrophysical Plasmas explore innovative basic science with underlying important applications. Therefore, sharing ideas on plasma diagnostics offers a solid ground for faster development boosting the understanding of the phenomena.
