The 60th Annual Meeting of the APS Division of Plasma Physics brings together nearly 1,800 leading scientists in the field of plasma physics, including space plasma, astrophysical plasma, low-temperature plasma science, particle accelerators, magnetic and inertial confinement, high-energy-density science, plasma technology, fusion reactor nuclear science, and measurement and diagnostic techniques.
Monday-Wednesday, November 5-9
9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Oregon Convention Center
Table Top Display Fee: $1,500
Each table top display includes one 3'x6' table, two chairs, one waste basket and two meeting registrations. Electricity or other exhibit items must be ordered from our contracted vendors. An Exhibitor Service Kit will be available in mid-September.
If you'd like to reserve two exhibit tables, the fee is $2,000 and includes all of items listed above, plus one additional meeting registration. No more than two tables per company.
The deadline for exhibitor applications is Friday, October 5, 2018 at 5:00pm EDT.
AIP Physics of Plasmas
The Connecting the Plasma Universe to Plasma Technology (CPU2AL) in Alabama project involves a partnership comprising nine universities and a research corporation in Alabama and is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) through an Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR). The project shares resources and leverage partnerships among Alabama institutions and industries to strengthen the research capacity and to build and train an inclusive workforce in plasma science and technology. The ultimate goal of the program is to engage a diverse, educated, and skilled pool of scientists and engineers to promote long-term relationships between students, academia, and industry to enhance the Alabama workforce.
Commonwealth Fusion Systems was founded in 2017, combining the lean, fast mentality of a startup, with the deep talent pool of academia and the world’s leading investors in science and energy, to develop the fastest path to commercial fusion energy. CFS is collaborating with researchers at the MIT Plasma Science and Fusion Center to design and build a new class of superconducting magnets that will drastically reduce the size and cost of fusion power plants. We bring together decades of cutting-edge fusion science with a recently developed materials science breakthrough in superconductors.
General Atomics operates DIII-D, the magnetic fusion facility for the U.S. Department of Energy. DIII-D is currently undergoing a series of enhancement activities that will help keep it at the forefront of fusion research in the U.S. Included in the upgrades are a new off-axis neutral particle beam, new microwave systems that will significantly increase electron power, and a new ultra-high frequency “helicon” radio wave antenna that is a promising technology for efficient sustained current.
JEMA designs and manufactures customized static power conversion systems for the Energy, Transport & Big Science sector. The company has more than 60 years of experience and has supplied and installed solutions worldwide. In particular for nuclear fusion machines like JT60-SA, MAST, JET, TJ-II, W7-X, TAE and TE we have made power supplies for NBI, RF heating and magnet coils.
Northrop Grumman offers an extraordinary portfolio of capabilities and technologies that enable us to deliver innovative systems and solutions for applications that range from undersea to outer space and into cyberspace. Northrop Grumman offers two electromagnetic simulation software suites: LSP and MAGIC. The LSP Suite is a 3-D electromagnetic particle-in-cell (PIC) code designed for large scale plasma simulations. The code calculates the interaction between charged particles (electrons and ions) and external and self-generated electric and magnetic fields. LSP is developed and supported in partnership with Voss Scientific. MAGIC Tool Suite is an evolving set of tools using FDTD-PIC methods and has sufficient capability to be used in the design and refinement of a wide variety of electromagnetic devices.
