Program 2020

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

In 2020, the 24th International School on "Low Temperature Plasma Physics: Basics and Applications" (October 5th to 15th, 2020) will take available online.


The link to the online lectures and recorded videos will be made available after your admission to the school in your personal myschool page.
