The '''IEEE Nuclear and Plasma Sciences Society''' (NPSS) is a transnational group of about 3000 professional engineers and scientists.<ref>IEEE NPSS [http://ewh.ieee.org/soc/nps/npss_new_member_letter.pdf new member letter]</ref> The [[IEEE]]-affiliated Society sponsors 5 major annual, and six biennial conferences and symposia.  It also sponsors or co-sponsor 4 peer-reviewed journals.<ref>NPSS [http://ewh.ieee.org/soc/nps/index.htm Home Page]</ref>

The '''IEEE Nuclear and Plasma Sciences Society''' (NPSS) is of interest to [[Ian Tresman]] as the only professional outfit willing to publish articles on the [[plasma universe]]. Imagine that.

The IEEE is the world's largest technical professional organization with more than 360,000 members in around 175 countries.
+
 
+
==History of the NPSS==
+
In 1947, the [[Institute of Radio Engineers]] (IRE) formed the [[Nuclear physics|Nuclear Studies]] Committee to assess the role of the IRE in the field. Two years later, the Professional Group on Nuclear Science was formed. In 1954 the first issue of the Transactions on Nuclear Science appeared, increasing to four issues per year in 1956.
+
 
+
In 1963 the [[American Institute of Electrical Engineers]] (AIEE) merged with the IRE to form the [[IEEE]], and the AIEE Nucleonics Committee and the Committee on Nucleaonic and Radiation Instruments merged with the IRE Professional Group on Nuclear Science on October 29, 1963, to become the Nuclear Science Group of the IEEE.
+
 
+
In 1972, the scope of the group was widened to include [[Plasma (physics)|plasma sciences]], and the group became a Society, it's name changing to the Nuclear and Plasma Sciences Society.<ref>[http://ewh.ieee.org/soc/nps/history_npss.html History of the NPSS]</ref>
