Physics and plasma at the Biennial of Spanish Royal Society of Physics

The XXXVII Biennial Meeting of the Spanish Royal Society of Physics (RSEF) was held last week (15th-19th July) in Zaragoza (Spain). The conference attracted more than 500 physicists working in a broad variety of disciplines, giving an overview to many research topics and research carried out in Spain in physics.

Professor Dan Frenkel’s presentation about granular entropy was one of the invited talks.

The sessions were divided in morning sessions devoted to a more general audience while seminars on specific subjects were given in the afternoons. Our PhD student Dani Gallart attended the meeting and presented our recent research results on the predictions of plasma performance at the Joint European Torus (JET) with tritium (T) and deuterium-tritium (DT) plasmas within the EUROfusion Consortium.

The plasma physics community in this last RSEF Conference was composed of many phisicists working on very different topics such as  plasma thrusters, astrophysical plasmas, cold plasmas and magnetically confined plasmas, among others. This is a clear demonstration of the applicability and importance of plasma physics beyond fusion research. As it was said in one of the talks, in the end, almost all matter in the universe is made out of plasma.

The place for the Conference was fantastic. Zaragoza is a charming city for many reasons. It has got plenty of nice places to visit, people are very friendly and food is really excellent, everything mixed with the ideal Spanish weather. What else could we ask for?
