The Fourth International Workshop on Non-Equilibrium Processes (NonEqProc)

The Fourth International Workshop on Non-Equilibrium Processes - NonEqProc will be organized within the framework of the 28th Summer School and International Symposium on the Physics of Ionized Gases (SPIG). It will be held on 29th of August 2016 at the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts. All registered at SPIG will have an option to participate in the workshop free of charge. In addition, it is possible to register just for the workshop. Speakers at the workshop may participate in the special publication of invited lectures and progress reports presented at SPIG.
The workshop originated as a part of the FP6 COE project in 2006 which had the basic aim of promoting centers of excellence in Western Balkan countries, to facilitate dissemination of their results and to help them establish themselves in the broader arena of European and international science. The program of the previous Workshops was augmented by inviting some of our colleagues who visited the COE in recent years or have an active collaboration with participating members. The Workshop continues to cover a wide area of topics from application of plasmas in nano-electronics to elementary processes in non-equilibrium systems and even broader range of topics with the common thread of non-equilibrium phenomena playing a major part in the basic physics and also in the technological applications.

We hope that the continuation of our Workshop will contribute to finding a common thread that connects different topics, even different fields that share some aspects of the phenomena associated with non-equilibrium. Topics of the workshop can be divided as following:

- Elementary processes in plasmas
- Nonequilibrium discharges at low pressures
- Nonequilibrium discharges at atmospheric pressure
- Plasma applications
- Collective phenomena in plasmas
- Positrons in gases and liquids
- Charged particle swarms and transport data
- General nonequilibrium processes and transport theory
