České Budějovice

Workshop will be held in the capital of South Bohemia - in České Budějovice (Budweis). České Budějovice is the royal city founded by Přemysl Otakar II in the year 1265 at the confluence of the Vltava and Malše rivers. Near to České Budějovice there is city Český Krumlov, which is on the UNESCO list. There is also great beer Budweiser Budvar around.


The workshop originated six years ago in Sankt Peter-Ording 2012 as rather informal meeting of German and Czech research groups focused on nanoparticles formed in low temperature plasma and their applications. Since that time, two workshops were already organized in PRAGUE 2014 and in Lubeck 2016. The 4th workshop will be organized in May 2018 in České Budějovice, the metropole of South Bohemian region. Two-days workshop is going to create a stimulating environment for presentation of last results from the field together with lively discussion among participants in friendly atmosphere. Based on previous meetings, participation of 30 active participants, not only from German and Czech research groups, is expected. Everyone interested in the workshop scope is cordially welcomed. Join us!
