Plasma and Space Propulsion Lab attends the 34th IEPC in Kobe-Hyogo, Japan


Professor Richard Wirz, Dr. Taylor Matlock, Ryan Conversano, and Gary Li all attend the 34th IEPC (International Electric Propulsion Conference) July 6th, 2015 to July 10th, 2015. In this joint conference with ISTS (International Symposium on Space Technology and Sciences) and NSAT (Nano-Satellite symposium), the number of participants will amount to over 1,300 and will give attendees opportunities to exchange the information and discuss the “state-of-the-art” on electric propulsion and another space activities. IEPC is the premier venue for researchers from around the world to meet and discuss the latest in the field of electric propulsion under the sponsorship of the Electric Rocket Propulsion Society. Conference topics include experimental and numerical investigations of technologies such as ion thrusters, Hall effect thrusters, arc and resistojets, MPDs and FRCs, as well as basic plasma processes, diagnostics, and mission trade studies. The conference provides the perfect forum to present research findings, and offers an unequalled opportunity to learn the latest developments, meet with colleagues, and establish new business contacts.
