As of July 2009 The European Physical Journal D - Atomic, Molecular, Optical and Plasma Physics has a third Editor-in-Chief. Kurt H. Becker (NYU-Poly) has been appointed and will work alongside Franco Gianturco and Claude Fabre, toward strengthening EPJ D. His particular emphasis will be on low-temperature plasma physics.

His background is in experimental atomic, chemical, and plasma/discharge physics. He has worked extensively on experimental and theoretical studies of electron-driven processes and on low-temperature plasma science and technology. Prior to joining NYU-Poly in 2007, he held faculty positions at Lehigh University, the City College of CUNY, and at Stevens Institute of Technology, where he was the Head of the Department of Physics and Engineering Physics and also Associate Director of the Center for Environmental Systems. Kurt Becker is a Fellow of the American Physical Society and holds an Honorary Degree from the Leopold Franzens University Innsbruck, Austria.

This was our first experience of publishing with EPJ Web of Conferences. We contacted the publisher in the middle of September, just one month prior to the Conference, but everything went through smoothly. We have had published MNPS Proceedings with different publishers in the past, and would like to tell that the EPJ Web of Conferences team was probably the best, very quick, helpful and interactive. Typically, we were getting responses from EPJ Web of Conferences team within less than an hour and have had help at every production stage.
We are very thankful to Solange Guenot, Web of Conferences Publishing Editor, and Isabelle Houlbert, Web of Conferences Production Editor, for their support. These ladies are top-level professionals, who made a great contribution to the success of this issue. We are fully satisfied with the publication of the Conference Proceedings and are looking forward to further cooperation. The publication was very fast, easy and of high quality. My colleagues and I strongly recommend EPJ Web of Conferences to anyone, who is interested in quick high-quality publication of conference proceedings.
