Invited Speakers

The GEC Executive Committee will select several topics for special emphasis. The invited speakers, their affiliations and tentative titles of their presentations for the 2016 GEC are listed here.

Publication of invited speaker articles in Plasma Sources Science & Technology

All GEC invited speakers are invited to submit their conference article to the IOP journal Plasma Sources Science and Technology. Articles are required to contain at least 30% of new and unpublished research and need to be within the scope of the Journal. The articles will be reviewed to the usual Journal standards and published as regular papers. Once all the articles are published they will be gathered in a web page dedicated to the 69th GEC and free to download for a period of time. This year, the Guest Editors are Prof. Lorenzo Ugo Ancarani (Université de Lorraine), Dr. Costel Biloiu (Applied Materials, Inc.), Prof. John Foster (University of Michigan), and Prof. Uwe Czarnetzki (Ruhr-University Bochum). Please contact the Guest Editors to submit your GEC invited talk article to the Journal.
