It is a great pleasure to invite you to take part in the 16th International Conference on the Physics of Non-Ideal Plasmas (PNP16) which is to be held at the Grand Large in Saint-Malo, France, from September 24 to 28, 2018.

PNP16 is to be held for the first time in France following a long series of previous meetings:

2015 - Almaty (Kazakhstan)
2012 - Rostock (Germany)
2009 - Chernogolovka (Russia)
2006 - Darmstadt (Germany)
2003 - Valencia (Spain)
2000 - Greifswald (Germany)
1998 - Rostock (Germany)
1995 - Binz (Germany)

1993 - Markgrafenheide (Germany)
1991 - Gosen (Germany)
1988 - Wustrow (Germany)
1986 - Greifswald (Germany)
1984 - Biesenthal (Germany)
1982 - Wustrow (Germany)
1980 - Matzlow-Garwitz (Germany)

The conference attendees will have the opportunity to exchange on many different aspects of non-ideal plasmas. The conference will cover a wide variety of topics:

  • Statistical physics and ab-initio simulations
  • Production of non-ideal plasmas (using optical lasers, free electron lasers, heavy-ion beams, Z machine, high explosives etc.)
  • Diagnostics of non-ideal plasmas (using x-ray scattering, line shapes, stopping power, emission and absorption, etc.)
  • Equilibrium properties, equations of state and phase transitions
  • Kinetics, transport and optical properties
  • Dense astrophysical and ICF plasmas
  • Ultra-intense laser-matter interaction
  • Dusty plasmas
