SCOPE - GEM

The meeting will be held from 11th February to 14th February, 2022 at the University of Sydney

The Gaseous Electronics Meeting (GEM) was initiated in 1980 by Dr John Lowke, a leading plasma physicist and former chief of the CSIRO Division of Industrial Physics.

Since then, GEM has steadily grown in importance as a forum for international plasma research and applications. Held every two years in Australia, GEM invites the plasma community to discuss the latest developments and the challenges ahead for scientists, engineers and industry from around the world.

GEM brings the atomic and molecular physics and plasma communities together to discuss the latest developments and the challenges ahead in the field of plasma research and applications among scientists, engineering and industries from across the world. It covers all aspects of gaseous electronics and related multidisciplinary topics and applications, including but not limited to:

  • Elementary processes in ionized gases
  • Electron and positron transport
  • Basic studies and diagnostics of low-temperature plasmas
  • Basic studies and diagnostics of fusion related plasmas
  • Physics of laboratory and space plasmas
  • Complex and dusty plasmas
  • Plasma processing, materials synthesis, surface/interface
  • Plasma nanoscience and nanotechnology
  • Plasmas in contact with liquids and their applications
  • Thermal plasmas: physics and industrial applications
  • Plasma discharges under extreme and unusual conditions
  • Applications of gas discharges and atomic/ion processes: environmental, energy, agriculture, biomedical, sterilization, manufacturing and security

MEETING DETAILS

A welcoming environment for all at GEM

GEM is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age or religion.

We will not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form. This includes sexual language and imagery which is not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks.

Conference participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the conference without a refund at the discretion of the conference organisers. Our full anti-harassment policy is described below.

For any concerns contact the organisers (James, Jacinda or Cormac) either directly in person, or via the conference email address.

Our Anti-harassment policy

Harassment includes, but is not limited to:

  • Verbal comments that reinforce social structures of domination related to gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age, religion.
  • Sexual images in public spaces
  • Deliberate intimidation, stalking, or following
  • Harassing photography or recording
  • Sustained disruption of talks or other events
  • Inappropriate physical contact
  • Unwelcome sexual attention
  • Advocating for, or encouraging, any of the above behaviour

We expect participants to avoid all of the above at all event venues and event-related social activities.

Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately. If a participant engages in harassing behaviour, event organisers retain the right to take any actions to keep the event a welcoming environment for all participants. This includes warning the offender or expulsion from the conference with no refund.

This anti-harassment policy is based on the example policy from the Geek Feminism wiki, created by the Ada Initiative and other volunteers.
