This year’s conference will be hosted in association with the Centre for Plasma Physics at Queen’s University Belfast and will be held in the Waterfront Hall on the cityside bank of the river Lagan. With the Harland and Wolff shipyard  providing a historical backdrop to the east, this venue is situated in the heart of Belfast city centre, a vibrant shopping and entertainment district with plenty of restaurants, bars and hotels. The city has a mixture of traditional and modern culture and is renowned for its warm and welcoming atmosphere.

Belfast now also boasts Europe's and the World’s leading tourist attraction in Titanic Belfast as voted for by both the industry and the public, overcoming stiff competition from the likes of Ferrari World (Abu Dhabi), the Las Vegas Strip (USA), Machu Picchu (Peru) and Guinness Storehouse (Republic of Ireland). We are delighted to announce that the gala dinner for the 44th EPS conference on Plasma Physics will be held at this world leading venue.

We look forward to welcoming you to Belfast in June 2017.

Best wishes,

Brendan Dromey
