This listing of plasma science and engineering conferences is provided as a service by the Plasma Science and Applications Committee of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. It is intended both to inform the plasma research community of relevant professional meetings and to assist conference organizers in avoiding schedule conflicts. Thus, listings from the past are retained as a guide to the future. Organizers are encouraged to submit information about their conferences as early as possible, even if incomplete. There is no charge for this service.

Approximately 1500 visits per month, excluding search engines.

Plasma Conference Statistics

Worldwide Distribution of Plasma Conferences

The Directory of Plasma Conferences contains approximately 120 conferences per year for the past decade, as shown by the figure immediately below. The actual number of plasma conferences around the world is unknown but may be as high as 180 annually. Conferences are predominantly in Europe and North America, with 15 to 25 conferences listed annually in Asia and a few in Africa, Australia, and South America.  It is unclear whether the substantial decrease in reported conferences over the past few years is due to the economy or to other reasons.
