ECPD 2017: 2nd European Conference on Plasma Diagnostics (ECPD)
18-21 Apr 2017 Bordeaux (France)
    The Conference on Plasma Diagnostics is a bi-annual event which aims at bringing together physicists or other scientists working on diagnostics for magnetic confinement fusion, beam plasmas and inertial fusion, low-temperature and industrial plasmas, and basic and astrophysical plasmas.
    The second edition of the Conference will take place in Bordeaux, France, starting from 18th and finishing on 21st of April 2017. This follows the first successful 1.5 day pilot meeting, organized as satellite to the main European Physical Society (EPS) Conference on Plasma Physics in Helsinki in 2013. After this, the EPS gave the green light for organizing the First European Conference on Plasma Diagnostics, held in April 2015 in Frascati (Rome), Italy. More than 150 scientists from all over Europe and overseas took part in this event and an even bigger number is expected to take part in the second edition of the conference in Bordeaux.
    The ECPD will take place in alternate years with respect to the HTPD conference in the USA.
    3 prizes (350 €/each) will be sponsored by EPS for the best poster for students.
