History and scope

The 2015 IPELS workshop will address the following topics that are investigated in laboratory, space and astrophysical plasmas:

  • Particle Acceleration
  • MHD & Self-Organization
  • Magnetic Reconnection and explosive phenomena
  • Magnetic dynamo and angular momentum transport
  • Shocks, Jets, Structures and Flow
  • Wave & Turbulence, Wave-particle interaction
  • Planetary and Astrophysical Dusty Plasma
  • High Energy Density Physics


IPELS is a 4.5-day meeting with many opportunities for discussions among the participants.  There will be both oral sessions (review, invited topical, and contributed focus talks) and poster sessions.

The first international workshop on the Interrelationship between Plasma Experiments in Laboratory and in Space was held in July 1991 Alpbach, Austria, and organised by Gerhard Haerendal (Max-Planck-Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics, Germany) and Nat Rynn (University of California, Irvine, California, USA).
