Overview

Spring Plasma School at Port Said (SPSP) is an annual event that targets BSc and MSc students who are interested in or studying plasma physics and plasma applications. SPSP is a week of lectures, hands-on computational tutorials, and problem-solving in plasma physics. Moreover, the participants can discover such a fantastic city –Port Said that overlooks Suez Canal and the Mediterranean sea. Participants and speakers are staying in the same resort; thus, the students have an excellent opportunity to ask and discuss the speakers about useful stuff, e.g., academic career, publication, study abroad, and seeking advice for the next step. If you are eligible, don’t miss such an opportunity, and apply –remember the deadline is on 31 Dec 2021 at 23:58:59.
