September 6, 2019, IVS- IPSTA annual conference
The Israel Society for Plasma Science and Technology Applications (IPSTA) is a division within the Israel Vacuum Society (IVS), serving as a home for those in the community of researchers who work in various areas related to the science and technology of plasma.
As part of its activities, IPSTA arranges annual conferences, sponsored by IVS. So far, IPSTA has organized the annual scientific meetings. The 2019 IPSTA annual conference as part of Israel Vacuum Society conference was remarkable by our Ph.D. student Mrs. Meital Siman-Tov lecture.
She presented her experiments and results. At the end of the conference Meital was awarded the Goldsmith Prize for this work. Our congratulations to Meital!

22-28 JUNE 2019 The IEEE Pulsed Power and Plasma Science Conference, Orlando FL USA
The 2019 IEEE Pulsed Power and Plasma Science Conference (PPPS 2019) is the premier international conference dedicated to pulsed power and plasma science, combining the IEEE International Pulsed Power Conference and the IEEE International Conference on Plasma Science. Starting in 2001, the IEEE Pulsed Power Conference (PPC) and the IEEE International Conference on Plasma Science (ICOPS) have combined once every six years to become the Pulsed Power and Plasma Science Conference. PPPS 2019 brings together the fourth combined conference of the PPC and ICOPS.
18-22 JUNE 2017 21st conference of Pulsed Power, Brighton United Kingdom.
One of the greatest honors you can bestow on the distinguished members of our community is to nominate them for an award. The Pulsed Power Science and Technology Technical Committee (PPS&T/TC) honors contributions and achievements in the field of Pulsed Power through distinguished awards. One of them is the Arthur H. Guenther award recognizes outstanding students in the field of pulsed power by identifying their unique achievements in the field of pulsed power science, engineering and technology development.
JUNE 2017 David Yanuka has won the Arthur H. Guenther Anniversary Award
The winner of the 2017 Arthur H Guenther Student Award is David Yanuka. He has won Anniversary Award “for research on the implosion of shock waves generated by underwater electrical explosion of wire arrays”.
08 APRIL 2016 The Institute of Frontier Materials is hosting international experts in fibre and plasma technology.
The 2016 Thinkers In Residence program has introduced two renowned scientists to Deakin’s Institute of Frontier Materials (IFM), Israel’s Professor Yakov Krasik and Professor Gregory Rutledge from the US, who have shared their knowledge about plasma and nanofibre research and how it can be applied to industry.
A world leader in plasma research and application, Professor Krasik, Professor of Physics at Technion in Haifa, Israel has been working with IFM’s Professor Jane Dai and her team on plasma research and possible industrial applications, building on the Institute’s growing reputation in this area.
