The 8th International Workshop “Strong Microwaves and Terahertz Waves: Sources and Applications” will be held on July 9 - 16, 2011 on board a river boat starting from Nizhny Novgorod, Russia.
The Workshop will consist of four strongly interrelated topical symposia:
- Symposium S: High power microwave sources
- Symposium H: Current drive and plasma heating by microwaves in nuclear fusion devices
- Symposium T: Terahertz sources, diagnostics and nonlinear interactions
- Symposium A: High power microwave applications (including accelerators, radars, gas discharges, materials processing, biomedical applications etc.)
This workshop is a continuation of the “Strong Microwaves in Plasmas” workshops held triennially since 1990. The adjusted title reflects gradual changes in the workshop contents towards a broader range of frequencies and applications.
The scope of the workshop covers a wide circle of research activities of both fundamental and applied importance. The workshop is highly interdisciplinary in nature; it opens ample opportunities for the interaction between the researchers working in high-power microwave electronics and plasma physics, with strong emphasis on the development of diverse applications.
The three-year cycle chosen for the workshop provides the participants with the possibility to accumulate significant results of their research.
The deadline for one-page abstract submission is April 15, 2011.
The deadline for registration is April 30, 2011.
The deadline for two-page synopsis (extended abstract) submission is May 31, 2011.
Please see “Abstracts and Proceedings” and “Registration and visas” for more information.
Traditionally, the workshop is held on board a river cruise boat. The format of the workshop offers opportunities for virtually unlimited discussions in addition to usual session presentations, and provides a rich cultural program. The cruise route for this workshop will be along the Volga river and the Volga-Baltic canal system, from Nizhny Novgorod to Saint-Petersburg.
The accommodation on board will be one- or two-berth cabins; breakfast, lunch and dinner included. Also, complimentary coffee will always be available during the breaks.
There will be a social program for the participants and accompanying persons, which will include sightseeing and historical tours on the cruise route, classical music concerts aboard, and the Workshop dinner.
