The 20thGeneral Conference

of the Condensed Matter Division

European Physical Society

Prague, July 19-23, 2004

Prague, Czech Republic


Prague Congress Center

General Information

Scope

The conference provides a forum for presentation of research work across the full range of condensed matter physics to a wide international audience. It is a sequel to the series of the EPS-CMD conferences, which started in Antwerp, 1980. The format of the meeting will be similar to the most recent ones in the series, held in Brighton, 2002 and in Montreux, 2000, each of which attracted about 1300 participants. The conference program will include plenary talks, about 32 focused sessions with invited speakers, about 32 mini-colloquia and ample space for poster sessions. The mini-colloquia should offer space for discussing both novel and established topics, while the focused sessions will be devoted to selected important areas of condensed matter physics. The Conference will be preceded by a tutorial Student day.

The Conference language will be English.
