Program 2019

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

In 2019, the 23th International School on "Low Temperature Plasma Physics: Basics and Applications" (October 5th to 10th, 2019) and its Master Class "Advanced Diagnostics" (October 10th to 12th, 2019) 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.
