Conference Comments

The 49th EPS Plasma Division annual conference was held from the 3rd to the 7th of July 2023 in Bordeaux, France. This was the first such conference held in person after the COVID pandemic and was hosted by and CEA, CNRS, Université de Bordeaux, Institut Laser Plasma and Region Aquitaine. The conference was further complicated by issues of journals re-evaluating their own plagiarism rules, resulting in some confusion as to whether the 4 page submissions to the conference proceedings would be considered with regard to any future journal publications. Together with some last minute complications, this resulted in only slightly over 200 conference proceedings papers being collected from the conference and presented here.
The plagiarism issues have been addressed such that the main journals have confirmed that these conference proceedings will be disregarded when considering papers submitted to those journals and we, the EPS board, expect that future conferences will return to a much higher contribution rate. We consider these submissions as a vital resource to the plasma physics research community, enabling conference attendees to refer to work they saw presented at the conference often much earlier than the time to reach a full refereed publication. We would like to thank all the participants who contributed in these complex circumstances and encourage everyone to submit such a contribution in future conferences.
