Overview

Overview Spring Plasma School is an annual event sponsored by the Center of Theoretical Physics at the British University in Egypt. It targets BSc and MSc students who are interested in Plasma Physics and its applications. Three days of lectures in the basics of plasma theory, numerics, experiments, and applications. Lecturers of the school come from different areas of research, such as stellar plasma, laser plasma, nuclear fusion, and geothermal energy with international recognition. It is an excellent opportunity for students of physics and nuclear engineering who are expected to graduate in July 2020 and 2021. Students and lectures accommodate the same resort that means open scientific discussions, knowledge transfer, and networking creation at an early stage before graduation. Out of class, students can enjoy social games with others or go hiking in Port Said. Each year 25 students will receive a grant to cover their accommodation and meals for the five days. One day conference: The last day of the school, MSc, Ph.D., and Postdocs can present their work for 20 mins + 10 mins questions. Professors and Ph.D. candidates have the option to attend the conference on the last day.
