On-site is Minister for Enterprise and Innovation Mikael Damberg, Vice President of Chalmers Anna Dubois and a representative from Wikimedia Sweden.</p>​<img src="/SiteCollectionImages/Forskning/Main-logo-1-300x200.jpeg" class="chalmersPosition-FloatRight" alt="" style="margin:5px" />On Wikipedia today there are about four times as many articles about men as there are about women, and around 90 percent of all those who write on Wikipedia are men. But WikiGap makes a difference. So far, the initiative, which has been ongoing since 8 March 2018, has generated about 3,000 new articles and updates of information. <br />29 August is the time to raise remarkable and famous women in research and innovation and we hope you want to join us! <br /><br />It doesn't matter if you have been editing on Wikipedia before, since you will get support in both English and Swedish. You can write in English or your native language. Everyone is welcome as long as focus is on female scientists and innovators. Which female reesearcher/innovator do you miss on Wikipedia? If you don't have a list of your own, you will be given suggestions on women who lack an article and articles which are suitable to update or translate. There will also be librarians on site to help out with references.<br /><br />You need to bring your own computer. A Swedish &quot;fika&quot; will be provided during the afternoon. <br /><br />Date: August 29, 2018<br />Time: 12: 30-16: 00<br />Location: Chalmers library, campus Johanneberg.<br /><br /><strong>REGISTRATION</strong><br /><a href=""><img class="ms-asset-icon ms-rtePosition-4" src="/_layouts/images/icgen.gif" alt="" />Register to #WikiGap through this link.</a><br /><br /><strong>PHOTO STUDIO DURING WIKIGAP:</strong><br />We will fill the gap when it comes to uploaded images on Wikimedia Commons, which is Wikipedia's image database, too. Drop-in for female researchers, 12:30 to 3:00 PM, at the same location as the writing workshop.<br /><br /><br /> Physics Colloquium<p>PJ, lecture hall,</p><p></p> and lecture – Gothenburg Lise Meitner Award 2018<p>FB, lecture hall,</p><p></p>​​Professor Chandrashekhar Joshi, University of California, Los Angeles, USA​, is the winner of the Gothenburg Lise Meitner Award 2018. He will visit the Gothenburg Physics Centre to receive the award and give the traditional award lecture in honour of the Austrian-Swedish physicist Lise Meitner. ​Professor Chandrashekhar Joshi receives the award &quot;<em>for conclusively demonstrating the advantages of using relativistically propagating plasma waves for electron acceleration</em>.&quot; Refreshments will be served after the lecture.​<br /><br /><br /><h3 class="chalmersElement-H3" style="font-family:&quot;open sans&quot;, sans-serif">About Chandrashekhar Joshi<img src="/SiteCollectionImages/Centrum/Fysikcentrum/Gothenburg%20Lise%20Meitner%20Award/Lise%20Meitner%202018/Porträtt_Chandrashekhar_Joshi170.jpg" class="chalmersPosition-FloatRight" alt="" style="margin:5px" /></h3> <div>Professor Chandrashekhar Joshi is <span style="background-color:initial">considered the Father of the experimental field of High-Gradient Plasmabased Charged Particle Acceleration – a paradigm shift for building accelerators of tomorrow. <br />In a career spanning four decades, Joshi and his colleagues have carried out pioneering experiments -using laser and ultra-relativistic electron pulses as drivers- on electron and positron acceleration using plasma waves thousands of times more rapidly than in a conventional accelerator.​</span></div> Meitner symposium<p>PJ, lecture hall,</p><p>​ Symposium in honour of Chandrashekhar Joshi – ​the Gothenburg Lise Meitner Award Laureate 2018</p><h4 class="chalmersElement-H4">​Programme:</h4> <div><span style="background-color:initial">08:00 – 08:45 Registration</span></div> <div> </div> <div>08:45 – 08:55 Welcome from Andreas Martin Heinz, Lise <span style="background-color:initial">Meitner Award Committee<br /><br /></span></div> <div> </div> <div><strong>Session 1</strong></div> <div> </div> <div><em>Chair: Tünde Fülöp</em></div> <div> </div> <div>09:00 – 09:40 Chandrashekhar Joshi​ (UCLA): <span style="background-color:initial">Generation of tunable IR radiation using plasma techniques</span></div> <div> </div> <div>09:40 – 10:00 Longqing Yi (Chalmers): Proton <span style="background-color:initial">acceleration in a laser-induced relativistic electron vortex</span></div> <div> </div> <div>10:00 – 10:20 Illia Thiele (Chalmers): Plasma-driven subcycle <span style="background-color:initial">pulse generation<br /><br /></span></div> <div> </div> <div>10:20<span style="background-color:initial"> </span><span style="background-color:initial">–</span><span style="background-color:initial"> </span><span style="background-color:initial">10:40 </span><span style="background-color:initial">Coffee and tea</span><span style="background-color:initial"> </span><span style="background-color:initial">​</span></div> <div><br /></div> <div> </div> <div>10:40 – 11:00 Julien Ferri (Chalmers): Enhanced target <span style="background-color:initial">normal sheath acceleration using colliding laser pulses</span></div> <div> </div> <div>11:00 – 11:35 Laszlo Veisz (Umeå University): Relativistic <span style="background-color:initial">nanophotonics</span></div> <div> </div> <div>11:35 – 11:55 Gert Brodin (Umeå University): On fuid <span style="background-color:initial">and kinetic models for dense and cold plasmas</span></div> <div> </div> <div>12:00 – 12:20 Discussion<br /><br /></div> <div> </div> <div><span></span><span style="background-color:initial">12:20 – 14:00 </span>Lunch <br /><br /></div> <div> </div> <div><strong>Session 2</strong></div> <div> </div> <div><em>Chair: Mattias Marklund</em></div> <div> </div> <div>14:00 – 14:50 Stuart Mangles (Imperial College): Laser <span style="background-color:initial">wakefield accelerators as tools for studying extreme</span></div> <div> </div> <div>conditons</div> <div> </div> <div>14:50 – 14:25 Olle Lundh (Lund University):</div> <div> </div> <div>14:25 – 15:00 Laurent Gremillet (CEA/DAM): Stability <span style="background-color:initial">analysis of a periodic system of relativistic current</span></div> <div> </div> <div>filaments</div> <div> </div> <div>Coffee and tea 15:00-15:30</div> <div> </div> <div>15:30 – 15:50 Tom Blackburn (Chalmers): Relativistically <span style="background-color:initial">intense XUV radiation from near-critical plasmas</span></div> <div> </div> <div>15:50 – 16:10 Arkady Gonoskov (Chalmers): Radiation <span style="background-color:initial">dominated particle and plasma dynamics</span></div> <div> </div> <div>16:10 – 16:30 Discussion​</div> Physics Colloquium<p>PJ, lecture hall,</p><p></p> Physics Colloquium<p>PJ, lecture hall,</p><p></p> Physics Colloquium<p>PJ, lecture hall,</p><p></p> Physics Colloquium<p>PJ, lecture hall,</p><p></p> Physics Colloquium<p>PJ, lecture hall,</p><p></p>
