DPP Committee for the Concerns Of Students and Early Career Scientists

What We Do


The APS Division of Plasma Physics Committee for the Concerns Of studeNts aNd Early Career scienTists (CONNECT) advocates and provides resources to students and early career scientists in the field of plasma physics, and beyond.

We organize a student day on the Sunday before the annual meeting and a town hall event on the Tuesday of the annual meeting. This website serves as an archive for resources, past events, and a connection point for various related groups (Young APS DPP Community, HelioNet).
