Scientific Program

Gray Arrow DPP 2016 Meeting Program Bulletin

The Scientific Program for the annual meeting will offer nine half-day sessions of invited, review, tutorial, and contributed (oral and poster) papers covering basic plasma physics, beams and coherent radiation, inertial confinement and high energy density plasmas, magnetic confinement, plasma technology and low temperature plasmas, space and astrophysical plasmas, education and outreach, and high-school and undergraduate research. Review papers will be presented in daily plenary sessions, and invited papers will be given each morning and afternoon in parallel with the contributed oral and poster session papers. Tutorial papers will be included in the afternoon invited sessions Monday through Thursday. Updated information about the program will be posted here in August.

The Bulletin of the American Physical Society, which contains the scientific program for the 2016 DPP Meeting, will only be distributed to those attendees that choose that option when they register. Open access to current archives of the Bulletin is available online.

Audio-Visual Equipment for Oral Sessions

All oral sessions will be equipped with an LCD projector, Windows-based PC laptop, screen, lavaliere microphone, and laser pointer. It is not necessary to bring your own laptop. If your presentation has been downloaded to a memory stick, you will be able to use the laptop provided. To avoid the most common cross-platform software problems, the use of PDF format is recommended. Whichever mechanism you utilize, to ensure that your presentation runs smoothly, you must first visit the Speaker-Ready Room to test your presentation with a technician.
PLEASE NOTE: This year, DPP will use projectors and screens with a 16:9 aspect ratio. Please remember to create or adapt your presentations using 16:9 aspect ratio. 

See the links below for more information on creating or adapting your slides into 16:9 format.

If you require additional AV equipment it can be rented by contacting Lee Warren (lee.warren@freemanco.com) at Freeman.
