The history of ICPDP started in 1996 in Goa (India) as a response to growing interest in the topics of dusty plasmas, when the liquid and crystalline plasma was discovered. We continue a series of International Conferences on the Physics of Dusty Plasmas which take place every three years at different locations around the world (Goa, India 1996; Hakone, Japan 1999; Durban, South Africa 2002; Orleans, France 2005; Azores, Portugal 2008, Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany 2011, New Delhi, India 2014). The conference provides a unique opportunity for disseminating the present status of dusty plasma physics worldwide and especially to young researchers.

Eight ICPDP conference is hosted by Charles University, Faculty of Mathematics and Physics. Being closely connected with the city development throughout the ages, the university and also the faculty is scattered all around the city. Physics research at the faculty is concentred in two places — one of them being located in the north part of the city, quite close to the event center. You will have the opportunity to see our labs there during excursions.

The meeting will be held in the conference center of Hotel DUO which is located in the Prague's northern suburbs. It's located close to the metro station Střížkov that can take you to the center of the city within 15 minutes.
