Poster Prizes
Plasma Processes & Polymers Awards

On the occasion of ICPIG 2007, Wiley-VCH sponsored three Poster Prizes (Plasma Processes and Polymers Awards) which were given to the best posters presented at the XXVIII ICPIG. Each award consisted of a one year subscription for Plasma Processes and Polymers and 150 Euro worth of Wiley books. In addition to the quality of the scientific content and graphical presentation of the poster, its compliance with the related paper was taken into account. The best student posters were selected by the International Scientific Committee irrespective of whether they were predominantly experimental, computational or theoretical and also irrespective of topic.

The International Scientific Committee has chosen

Karen Gillespie (University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, Scotland)
Stephan Reuter (Universitat Duisburg-Essen, Germany)
Alex Versteegh (Eindhoven University of Technology, The Netherlands)

as the recipients of the ICPIG 2007 Poster Prizes.

K.Gillespie was awarded for the poster:
5P07-09 "3D PiC modelling of a experiment to investigate Auroral Kilometric Radiation mechanisms".

S.Reuter was awarded for the poster:
3P10-44 "Atomic oxygen density in the effluent of an RF-excited atmospheric pressure plasma jet: measurements, modelling, mechanisms".

Alex Versteegh was awarded for the poster:
5P12-05 "Long-living plasmoids from a water discharge at atmospheric pressure".

Plasma Processes & Polymers is the interdisciplinary journal on low-temperature plasma sources and processes operating at pressures ranging from partial vacuum to atmospheric. Processes include plasma deposition, etching and surface modification of materials. Also of interest are studies on materials characterization, plasma diagnostics and modeling, and other related subjects.
