For its 21st conference, Pulsed Power is being held for the first time in the United Kingdom. The Pulsed Power Conference is a forum for the discussion of all aspects of the science, technology and application of Pulsed Power. Pulsed Power, the techniques for using electrical energy to generate high power short pulse(s), is used in a large range of applications from plasma physics and particle beam generation through intense magnetic field generation to industrial and medical applications. PPC 2017 welcomes papers and presentations on all these topics and any others that apply to the Pulsed Power field.
The conference is being hosted at the Hilton Metropole Hotel, on the seafront of the town of Brighton situated on the south coast of England. Brighton is a popular and cosmopolitan town that has hosted many national and international conferences. One of the largest cities in England, Brighton has a long history reaching back to Roman times. Its more recent history is as a seaside resort, the Lanes, the Royal Pavilion, Brighton Pier and the i360 are all attractions of particular note.
