We wish to extend a cordial invitation to the mutually related traditional 15th International Symposium on High-Current Electronics (15th SHCE), and the 9th International Conference on Modification of Materials with Particle Beams and Plasma Flows (9th CMM) to be held in Tomsk, Russia, on September 21-26, 2008.
The programs of two conferences covers a wide range of scientific and technical areas including pulsed power technology, ion and electron beams, high-power microwaves, plasma and particle beam sources, modification of materials, and pulsed power applications in chemistry, biology and medicine.
The six-day conferences format will provide excellent opportunity for both formal presentation and informal discussion about topics of interest to conference participants.
The conferences will be held at the Rubin Congress Center and the Institute of High Current Electronics, both of them are located in the Academic Town of the Tomsk Scientific Center of the Russian Academy of Sciences. The conference location is 30 minutes (by bus) from Tomsk downtown.
The conference organizers, committee members, and session organizers of these conferences welcome you to our meeting. We look forward to your participation and sincerely hope that you will enjoy the scientific program and that your stay in Tomsk will be memorable.
