The Institute of Applied Physics of Russian Academy of Sciences announces that the 11th International Workshop “Strong Microwaves and Terahertz Waves: Sources and Applications” will be held on July 5–10, 2020 on a river cruise starting and ending in Nizhny Novgorod, Russia.
This workshop is a continuation of the “Strong Microwaves” workshop series that started in 1990. The scope of the workshop covers a wide circle of research activities of both fundamental and applied importance. The workshop is highly interdisciplinary in nature; it opens ample opportunities for the interaction between the researchers working in high-power microwave electronics, plasma physics, and terahertz science, with a strong emphasis on the development of diverse applications. A three-year cycle chosen for the workshop provides the participants with an opportunity to accumulate and present the most significant results of their research.
It is planned that the proceedings of the workshop will be published in the Journal of Physics Conference Series which is an open-access peer-reviewed electronic journal indexed in Web of Science and Scopus.
The side events at the workshop include the 32nd Joint Russian-German Meeting on ECRH and Gyrotrons and a school on high power microwave vacuum electronics for young scientists and PhD students.
Traditionally, the workshop is held aboard a comfortable cruise riverboat. This provides a unique opportunity for the participants to take a closer look at Russian history and culture. A sightseeing program on the route, a special progam for accompanying persons, and a set of social events are scheduled.
