Online Low Temperature Plasma Seminar

Because of the pandemic caused by COVID-19, most scientific conferences, workshops, and symposia have been cancelled or postponed. The unfortunate consequence of this is that the low temperature plasma (LTP) community, like many other research communities, is now isolated without the opportunity to meet, network, and learn what’s new in our field. To remedy this situation, a bi-weekly online seminar is being organized. This seminar series is meant to fill the gap left open by the lack of scientific meetings and conferences. The seminar organizing committee has selected several outstanding speakers to participate by giving a 25-30 minutes lecture followed by 10-15 minutes discussion. The seminar, held on Tuesdays at 9:00 AM EST via Zoom, is free to access from anywhere in the world.

For more information, and to request the Zoom link and password, please contact Prof. Mounir Laroussi, Old Dominion University. Email: mlarouss@odu.edu.
