45th Annual Meeting of the APS Division of Plasma Physics

When are the best walls made out of liquid? Or even gas? Why would anyone think chaos could lead directly to order? Would you like a microwave oven that wouldn't interfere with your wireless network? Would you believe that smog can be reduced with plasma?

These and many other questions will be addressed at one of the world's largest physics meetings this year: the 45th Annual Meeting of the American Physical Society Division of Plasma Physics (APS-DPP), to be held from October 27-31, 2003, in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Around 1600 papers are scheduled to be delivered at this meeting.
