Objectives of the Plasma Physics Division

      • to unite European scientists interested in the physics of fully and partially ionized gases
      • to promote research and teaching in plasma physics and its applications, to facilitate research collaboration and to represent European physicists outside Europe
      • to coordinate activities with the other physical societies, such as the American Physical Society and the Physical Society of Japan
      • to collaborate on the Editorial Board of Plasma Physics and Controlled Fusion.

The Plasma Physics Division is responsible for the annual EPS Conference on Plasma Physics and for granting several Awards.
