Invited Speakers

The 2023 winner of the von Engel and Franklin prize is:
Jean-Pierre Boeuf of Université P. Sabatier in Toulouse, France
Being elected by ICPIG's international scientific committee, he will deliver his prize-lecture at the ICPIG. The ‘von Engel and Franklin Prize’ was established in 1998. It is sponsored by the ‘Hans von Engel and Gordon Francis Fund’ and is administered by the Board of Physical Sciences, University of Oxford. The prize is named in honour of two distinguished colleagues who had a major role in ICPIG and its community since the first meeting in 1953.

The prize is awarded every two years to an individual for work in the field of physics and technology of plasmas and ionized gases, as covered by ICPIG meetings. The selection is conducted by the International Scientific Committee, based either on long-standing and important contributions to the field, or an outstanding achievement giving rise to a new field, or both.
