44th Annual Meeting of the APS Division of Plasma Physics

Where can you find the strongest magnetic fields on Earth? Why do galactic nuclei spit out vast plumes of hot material into space? How can x-rays squeeze fuel capsules to generate energy? How can the turbulent flow of a plasma make itself stable and what does that have to do with the patterns on Jupiter?

These and many other questions will be addressed at one of the world's largest physics meetings this year: the 44th Annual Meeting of the American Physical Society Division of Plasma Physics (APS-DPP), to be held from November 11-15, 2002 in Orlando, Florida. Around 1600 papers are scheduled to be delivered at this meeting.
