Prof. Dr. Hassan Shah, the organizer of the conference, said in the three-day deliberations 37 papers would be presented while 7 keynote speakers from the USA, Germany, Australia, Holland, Singapore, the UK and Belgium would also present their recent findings in the field of Plasma Physics.
The conference is also expected to cover theoretical, experimental and computational Plasma Physics which will include talks on laboratory plasmas space physics and astrophysical plasmas.
Prof. Shah said that there was a substantial Plasma Physics community that would benefit from this meeting. He further added that in the country national conferences had all but come to halt in the past year due to COVID, thus in Pakistan, this Conference is being welcomed by the Plasma Physicists and this especially true for our young researchers and PhD students working different Universities across the country.
