Workshop on FAIR Data in Plasma Science

The 3rd Workshop on FAIR Data in Plasma Science (FDPSIII) will take place on May 13-14, 2024 at Kiel University, Kiel, Germany. There will be the option for virtual participation.


The workshop is a continuation of successful events on research data management in the low-temperature plasma community in the past years. It aims to inform about current developments and to strengthen the exchange in the community on this topic. A further step in the series will be contributions on the needs and practical solutions related to the implementation of the FAIR data principles into practical research workflows. This covers both the field of laboratory experiments as well as modeling/simulations. A hands-on session will demonstrate how the electronic laboratory notebook system eLabFTW and the metadata creation tool Adamant can be set up and used in the field of plasma research.


The on-site event will take place at

Institute of Experimental and Applied Physics
Kiel University
Conference room LS 19/214
Leibnizstraße 19
24118 Kiel, Germany

The workshop will be held as a hybrid meeting. The meeting link will be distributed to all registered persons a few days before the workshop starts.
