Program 2018

Our series of schools on low temperature plasma physics has been a great success in the last two decades.

In 2018, the 22th International School on "Low Temperature Plasma Physics: Basics and Applications" (October 7th to 11th, 2018) and its Master Class "Electronegative plasmas" (October 11th to 13th, 2018) will take place at the Physikzentrum Bad Honnef (Germany).

We are looking forward to it because, once again, we are putting together a very promising program, with the support of many colleagues who are willing to give a talk at the School.
