The 67th GEC will be hosted by North Carolina State University.  NCSU is one of the leading educational and research universities in the United States, and home to numerous groups focused on plasma science and plasma application.  This presence is further strengthened by nearby Duke University and the University of North Carolina; the three universities forming the science and technology hub known as the Research Triangle, home to industry giants  and high tech start-ups, many of which were launched out of NCSU. 

For 66 years, the GEC has been an invaluable resource to the plasma and collision community, and continues to have a leadership presence in traditional areas such  as plasma phenomena, low pressure processes, plasma chemistry, surface interactions, atomic and molecular interactions, simulation, and diagnostics.  In recent years, the GEC has also taken a leadership role in emerging areas of plasma science including biological and environmental applications and atmospheric plasma systems.
