94th IUVSTA Workshop on reliable sensing and control of reactive plasmas

29th May to 2nd June 2022, Kranjska Gora, Slovenia

The 94th IUVSTA Workshop will gather leading scientists in plasma sensors to discuss recent achievements in sensing technology as well as drawbacks of currently used sensors. Innovative sensors will have to be developed within the next decade. The critical requirement is reliability. The accuracy is not crucial as long as a broad range of treatment parameters is tolerable – often by choosing discharges capable of self-adjustment. The sensor’s response should be predictable and thus suitable for integration in digital twins. Distinguished scientists from world-leading groups in this field are invited to attend the workshop. No proceedings will be published, but the participants are asked to submit the abstract.

  • Abstract submission by 30th April
  • Registration deadline 30th April
  • Workshop duration 29th May to 2nd June
  • Venue Kranjska Gora, Slovenia

We will be situated in the Best Western hotel, right at the foot of the Julian Alps and the Vršič mountain pass.
With its location in the heart of the Julian Alps and close to the ski slopes, the hotel is an ideal starting point for running, hiking, sport climbing, cycling, swimming or just enjoying the fresh mountain air with endless views. Cycling and hiking trails are in the immediate vicinity, we have a starting point for the royal ascent to Vršič and all the trails that lead past the glacier lake Jasna, which is 10 min walking from the hotel along river Pišnica with crystal-clear water (https://kranjska-gora.si/en/sightseeings/jasna-lake/)
