International Online Plasma Seminar (IOPS)

MIPSE is happy to support the International Online Plasma Seminar organized by the Plasma Technology Group of Ruhr-Universität Bochum, Germany. The IOPS is a free international online lecture series on low temperature plasma science. International experts present original research results as the basis for scientific discussion and exchange in the frame of 30 - 45 min talks. After the presentations questions from the audience are discussed. Speakers and audience can attend from anywhere in the world at no cost and without traveling. In this way researchers, especially students, can access state-of-the-art scientific presentations in low temperature plasma science, which are otherwise only available at conferences, at no cost and without generating CO2 emissions.

Current Program of IOPS (updated January 6, 2020)

Presentations begin at 3 pm CET/9 am EST on Thursdays.

The idea of the IOPS is based on active participation, i.e. the attendees’ research groups are expected to contribute presentations and to ask questions. Speakers can be nominated at any time by contacting Prof. Julian Schulze (schulze@aept.rub.de) via email. Nominations should include the speaker’s name, affiliation, contact information, and a short description of the work to be presented including a tentative title of the presentation. At the end of each year, the IOPS program for the following year is generated based on these nominations.

The seminar is realized via Adobe Connect. The Adobe Connect App can be downloaded free of charge. We recommend using this App rather than any browser to join the seminar to avoid technical problems. Speakers are expected to be online at least 15 min prior to their presentation to avoid technical problems. During the presentations all microphones must be muted (except for the speaker).
