MINI-CONFERENCE: Bridging the Divide Between Space and Laboratory Plasma Physics
Organizers: Jason TenBarge, Greg Howes, Kris Klein, Chris Chen, Stanislav Boldyrev
October 23-27, 2017 in Milwaukee, WI
The American Physical Society Topical Group in Plasma Astrophysics is sponsoring a mini-conference held as part of the 2017 Division of Plasma Physics meeting. Many of the challenges facing the laboratory plasma physics and fusion confinement communities are rooted in fundamental kinetic plasma physics phenomena that are also crucial to understand the physics of the heliosphere and astrophysical systems. This mini-conference is dedicated to fostering cross-disciplinary interaction and communication among plasma physicists, space physicists, and astrophysicists. We solicit talks and poster presentations focusing on new results from spacecraft missions that illuminates plasma phenomena, laboratory findings relevant to space physics, and theoretical and computational work that covers the fundamental physics common to studies of space and laboratory plasmas.
Abstract Deadline: July 14, 2017
Please note that when submitting your abstract, presenters must select mini-conference subject category 15.1 and may include a brief mini-conference title in the Special Instructions (e.g., bridging the divide-GPAP). Mini-conference presenters are allowed one additional first author paper submission in the regular technical program.
