60th Annual Meeting of the APS Division of Plasma Physics Co-Located with the 71st Annual Gaseous Electronics Conference
November 5-9, 2018 • Portland, Oregon

Abstract Submission

Deadline: Friday, June 29, 2018 at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time

Gray Arrow Submit your abstract

Thank you for your interest in the DPP/GEC meeting. Because this year’s meeting is a co-located meeting, if you are listed as the primary presenter you are required to register for the meeting in which you are presenting your work.

The first author is typically the primary presenting author.

If multiple abstracts with the same first author are submitted, one paper will be assigned to the regular session and all others to the Supplemental Poster Session on Friday morning. Submission of an abstract is taken as a representation by the submitter that he/she expects the first author to attend the conference. Presentation of multiple papers, whether oral or poster, by a single person is not permitted except that the presenter of a review, invited, or tutorial talk, an education and outreach paper, or a mini-conference paper is allowed one additional abstract submission in the regular meeting program.

Submit abstracts online at the Submit an Abstract web page.
Select the 60th Annual Meeting of the APS Division of Plasma Physics and follow the step by step instructions. Select the Abstract Format and Proceed.

Contributed abstract length is < 1,300 characters (about 250 words). Having numerous authors as well as overly long titles, affiliations, and footnotes can push the abstract over the character limit despite being within the limit for the abstract text itself.

To speed up submission know the number of authors and select the appropriate Sorting Category and proofread the abstract.

If you encounter any problems submitting your abstract contact the APS Abstract Help Line (abs-help@aps.org), Monday-Friday, 9:00am to 5:00pm Eastern Time.

Note: Individuals who apply for membership online should receive an email notification with a member ID number within 1-2 days. If you need to submit an abstract prior to receiving your member ID, please enter Membership Pending. Membership will be verified after submission.

Poster Session boards are freestanding, with a display area measuring four (4) feet high by eight (8) feet wide. Push-pins are provided.

Undergraduate or High School Students Doing Research

There will be a special afternoon poster session, “Undergraduate/High School Research” on Tuesday, November 6. For the sixteenth year, DPP will present an outstanding poster award to a number of undergraduate students. This poster session provides an opportunity for students to present results from summer and thesis research, as well as to meet other plasma physicists, such as junior and senior researchers, and other students.

Undergraduate or high school students should submit their abstracts as contributed posters following the abstract submission procedure as outlined above. To present in the Tuesday poster session please select either 14.1 (High-school research) or 14.2 (Undergraduate research) sorting category.

If you have questions about the Undergraduate/High School Poster Session, please contact Saralyn Stewart (stewart@physics.utexas.edu).

DPP will waive the registration fee for undergraduate or high school student presenters. Indicate “undergrad” or “high school student” on the downloaded Registration Form, scan it and email it to the APS Registrar. Registrar contact information is listed on the form.

Note: APS offers a free year to introduce undergraduate and graduate students to the American and International physics community. Join APS and select DPP as one of two units included with trial membership. Go to Membership for APS Free Student Trial Membership information.
