Presentations & proceedings

Oral Presentations

The conference will have four types of oral contributions. The Alfvén Prize lectures each have a timeslot of 45 minutes. Plenary lectures will have 35 minutes total and invited lectures 30 minutes. For each of these the speakers are advised to leave a minimum of 5 minutes for questions and answers. Contributed oral presentations will be 15 minutes including a minimum of 2 minutes for questions and answers. The time limits will have to be followed strictly.
The oral presentation will make use of Zoom technology. For the best online presentation sharing the wide screen 16:9 format is advised.


Poster presenters are expected to prepare a poster in A0 portrait format, that can be uploaded on the online conference platform. Conference participants will be able to view the posters at any time during the conference and for at least two months after. Each poster presenter will be able to present her/his poster in a regular online zoom session during the time slot of the poster session to which the contribution is assigned. There will be 8 poster sessions in total each lasting about 1 hour.


Authors of contributed papers are expected to upload a pdf file of a four page summary of their contribution for the conference proceedings, which will be published online after the conference. The deadline for the four page paper upload is Friday 1 July (the last day of the conference). Please use either the rtf or LaTeX templates that you can find at Note that the template is identical to the abstract template except that now a 4 page limit applies.

Information on how to upload the four page papers can be downloaded via this link (PDF).

Invited PPCF Special Issue Papers

Plenary and invited speakers are requested to prepare an article for a special issue of the Plasma Physics and Controlled Fusion journal.

The manuscript submission deadline is 30 September 2022. The special issue will be published incrementally, with all published articles collected together on a dedicated special issue page at PPCF. This means that articles submitted earlier will be published as soon as they are accepted and prepared for publication, without being delayed waiting for other papers in the collection.

The suggested page limits are 12 journal pages for a plenary talk and 8 pages for an invited talk (PPCF pages are approximately 900 words per page, with tables and figures using the equivalent of 300 words each). However, papers that exceed these limits will still be considered so long as the length is justified by the scientific content.

The quality and formatting requirements for special issue articles are the same as for regular submissions to PPCF. For details of preparation and submission guidelines, including obtaining permissions, please visit:

IOP Publishing will manage the peer-review of the special issue in-house. All contributions should be submitted via our online submissions system: Please select article type “Special Issue Article” and special issue title “Special issue featuring the invited talks from the 48th EPS Conference on Plasma Physics, 27 June – 1 July 2022".
