The Minicourse for ICOPS-2015 will be a 1.5 day tutorial on Plasma Science and Engineering. ICOPS 2015 will attract a large number of students from Turkey and the region. Instruction in Plasma Science and Engineering is not widely available in this area and this Minicourse is an opportunity to provide introductory instruction to students in all topics that are covered at a typical ICOPS meeting.

The Minicourse subjects and lecturers are listed below:
