IPSTA

The Israel Society for Plasma Science and Technology Applications (IPSTA) is a division within the Israel Vacuum Society, serving as a home for those in the community of researchers who work with various areas related to the science and technology of plasma. The idea of forming a division was initiated in 1998 by Ray Boxman, who realized that there was quite a large number of groups in academia and in research institutes who were working this area and who would like to share knowledge and expertise and seek an adequate platform.  

 

As part of its activities, IPSTA arranges annual meetings, sponsored by IVS. So far, IPSTA has organized the following scientific meetings:
