EPS conferences on Plasma Physics encompass the fields of fusion research, magnetic confinement fusion,
beam plasmas, laser-plasma interaction and inertial confinement fusion, dusty and low temperature plasmas,
as well as space, astrophysical and basic plasmas.

The scope of ICPP includes fundamentals of plasma physics, fusion plasmas, plasmas in astrophysics
and space, plasma applications and technologies, complex plasmas, high energy density plasmas, quantum plasmas and laser-plasma interaction.
