45th IEEE International Conference on Plasma Science (ICOPS 2018)
2018-06-24 to 2018-06-28
Denver, CO, USA

The International Conference on Plasma Science (ICOPS) is an annual conference coordinated by the Plasma Science and Application Committee (PSAC) of the IEEE Nuclear & Plasma Sciences Society. The program of the 45th ICOPS covers both traditional areas of plasma science and new exploratory research areas. The conference offers an outstanding forum for scientists and engineers to learn further about some of the greatest advances in plasma science and technology in recent years and to discuss future directions of research.

Stochastic Electrodynamics
2018-07-18 to 2018-07-20
SED2018 Boston University

Organizers: Herman Batelaan (University of Nebraska), Ana María Cetto (National University of Mexico) and Dan Cole (Boston University)

Purpose and scope

The purpose of the SED2018 meeting is to promote the physical insights that have been attained by researchers using and developing the theory of Stochastic Electrodynamics from various perspectives and to provide a platform that stimulates discussion, helps disseminate results and promote further work.

The meeting is intended to include reviews on several topics on SED to assist newer members of this community, as well as the presentation of new results and discussion of the challenges met by the theory and of experimental avenues that may test ideas inspired by it.

Workshop on Collective Scattering of Light
2018-08-27 to 2018-08-31
Fernando de Noronha - PE Brazil

The role of coherences between atomic dipoles has gained an ever-increasing importance with the advent of ultracold atoms and large trapped ion systems. These allow to generate and manipulate correlations and entanglement between the particles, with many consequences for both applications (e.g., quantum information) and for the study of fundamental properties of matter. Light is the most important and versatile tool to manipulate matter in a controlled way, allowing today to address and manipulate single atoms and ions and their respective coherences.

This workshop addresses the properties of these many-body systems at the frontier between the microscopic and macroscopic realms. The coupling between light and an ensemble of classical or quantum scatterers, and the induced classical and quantum correlations, will be intensively discussed through lectures and informal discussions. Some of the main topics of interest are listed below:

Symposium and Summer School on Physics of Ionized Gases (SPIG)
2018-08-28 to 2018-09-01
Belgrade, Serbia

SPIG was initiated before 56 years ago. The first meeting was organized in Belgrade in 1962, under the title: “1st Yugoslav Symposium on the Physics of Ionized Gases (SPIG)”.

SPIG represents an international conference in the fields of:

These four disciplines have strong interactions in numerous applications, however, due to the development of specialized international conferences, it has become increasingly rare that such a wide range of topics is covered at a single conference. As the four fields often overlap and merge in numerous fundamental studies and more importantly applications, SPIG serves as a venue for exchanging ideas in the four related fields. Although the number of international conferences on this and similar topics is growing and the competition between conferences is strong, SPIG has had enviable success in attracting a large number of scientists to Serbia every two years. The SPIG conferences is international in character with an international scientific committee and a large number of invited speakers from all around the world. Most of the leading scientists in the fields related to SPIG have attended the conference at some stage. SPIG is held every two years and in the recent years typical number of participants was 150–200 including 30 invited speakers and 25 progress reports. Approximately 50% of participants are from a large number of different countries, mostly from Europe.


The 29th Summer School and International Symposium on the Physics of Ionized Gases (SPIG 2018) will be held in Belgrade, Serbia, from August 28th to September 1st 2018, at the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts. The 29th SPIG is organized by the VinĨa Insitute of nuclear sciences, University of Belgrade, Belgrade, Serbia, in collaboration with the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts. The SPIG conference covers a wide range of topics from fundamental studies to applications of ionized gases.
