General information 

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.

The conference was organized by Opole University in 1997 (Jarnołtówek), 2005 (Turawa) and 2019 (Opole).


Opole ( 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 main lecture hall of the conference was located in the building of the Self-Goverment of the Opolskie Voivodeship.
