The International Conferences on Research and Applications of Plasmas have been organized every two years since 1993. This conference started as a local, Polish meeting but with participation of many guests from abroad. The consequence of its broad international impact was its conversion into fully international conference.
The conference used to be organized by different plasma research centres in Poland, and (after merging the conference with Polish-French and Polish-German symposia) in Germany and France. Recently the main organizer was Institute of Plasma Physics and Laser Microfusion (IPPLM) and the conference was held in Warsaw.
In 1997 and 2005 the conference was organized by Opole University and it will be also the main organizer in 2019. Unlike last time, in 2019 this conference will be held in July (not in September!).
Opole (http://info.um.opole.pl/en/) is situated in the south of Poland, near the border with the Czech Republic (Trzebinia-Bartulovice – 54 km) and Germany (Olszyna – 240 km). Access to the city is facilitated by large motorway A4 (Berlin-Kiev) passing 15 km from the city center and two airports in ~100 km range – Wrocław and Katowice-Pyrzowice.
If you are arriving by plane to Warsaw you can come to Opole by the express train (in three hours).
The conference will take place in the campus of University of Opole (http://www.uni.opole.pl/en), close to the city centre, hotels, restaurants, and student hostels.
