Fortunately enough, the building is still part of Charles University, which – after initial detailed scrutiny of the project – considerably helped obtain the necessary authorisations.
The 26th Symposium on Plasma Physics and Technology [SPPT 14] will take place from 16 to 19 June 2014 in Prague, Czech Republic.
This conference, with its first edition dating back to 1967, serves as a meeting point for researchers to present and discuss the latest advances in Plasma Physics as well as the state-of-the-art technology developed for this field.
SPPT 14 covers broad range of Plasma Physics topics, namely: Tokamaks and other magnetic confinement devices…
