ORGANIZERS

Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University is pleased to announce the first Nature conference in Russia – Advances and Applications in Plasma Physics. This event aims to provide a platform for the exchange of recent results between plasma scientists working on different plasma-related research topics, to stimulate further breakthroughs in fundamental understanding and advances towards new applications in this fascinating field of research.

In partnership with the leading publishing house Nature Research and the editors of high-profile journals Nature Physics, Nature Communications and Nature Reviews Physics we invited the most important researchers from different plasma-related topics to give their speeches at the conference. The participants will also have a chance to listen to the IAEA, ITER and ROSATOM representatives.

The conference will take place in St. Petersburg, one of the most beautiful cities in the world, Europe’s Best Tourist Destination of the year 2017, Europe's Leading Heritage Destination 2018 and Europe's Leading Cruise Destination 2018 at World Travel Awards.
