The 2015 International Workshop on the Interrelationship between Plasma Experiments in the Laboratory and in Space (IPELS2015) will take place on August 23-28, 2015 in the Atholl Palace hotel in Pitlochry, Scotland, UK.


The aim of this interdisciplinary workshop is to foster intellectual interaction and scientific collaboration between the ionospheric, magnetospheric, solar, heliophysics, and astrophysics communities and the laboratory experimental, theoretical and computational communities to address the fundamental plasma processes governing these extraordinarily complex and dynamic environments. Dedicated laboratory studies (1) probe and elucidate fundamental plasma physical processes, (2) provide benchmarks for validating theory and modeling, and (3) produce spectroscopic measurements, all in support of interpreting rocket, satellite and telescope data. Contributions to facilitate this interaction in terms of diagnostic-techniques needs and emerging instrumentation development as well as theory, modeling and simulations are also welcome.
