The Wednesday (31st August) afternoon (14:00 - 17:30) of the conference is dedicated to two specialised workshops:

  • Plasma nano-fabrication
  • Laser produced plasmas

The workshops run in parallel and the programme includes invited speakers as well as oral contributions selected from the submitted abstracts.
