Special Events

A century ago Schenectady (also in the Capital Region) was the site of the first electronics

revolution.  Nobel Laureate Irving Langmuir worked there at GE and perfected Edison's light bulb, put Vacuum science on a firm foundation, and probed plasmas.  To commemorate Langmuir's work, GEC will organize several events on his life and work. 

Pre-Conference Workshop will cover recent advances in theory and measurement of plasma transport coefficients with applications to plasma modeling.

The 62nd GEC will also offer several tutorials and special sessions on topics relevant to research and applications of low temperature plasma.

See Special Program for more details on all the above.
