Welcome to the web site of the European Working Group for Glow Discharge Spectroscopy (EW-GDS).
The site recounts the history of the group and also details any events that will take place in the near future. This is an exciting time for Glow Discharge Spectroscopy, as evidenced by attendance figures at the recent dedicated symposia.

We are continually updating and developing the site, and we would welcome any news items or suggestions from you. If you have any ideas or if you want to announce any meetings relevant to GDS then please contact the webmaster by email

Over the years we have organised meetings and symposia in various parts of Europe, and these have been attended by members of the GDS community from all over the world, and more details of these meetings, and future meetings, of course, can be found elsewhere on this site. These meetings, and other aspects of our work, would not have been possible without the help of our sponsors, and links to their web sites can be found below.

We hope that you find our work inspiring, and very much hope that you will feel that you can become involved with future development in the world of Glow Discharge. Please feel free to contact us.
