XXI Czech-Polish seminar

Structural and ferroelectric phase transitions

Sezimovo Usti, Czech Republic
May 19 – 23, 2014

The idea of regular scientific meetings of physicists involved in studies of ferroelectrics and phase transitions in Poland and Czechoslovakia followed inevitably from the success of first such an event in Blazejewko in 1979. The Seminar was organized in collaborating of the Department of Dielectrics of the Institute of Physics of Czechoslovak Academy of Sciences and the Ferroelectric Lab of the Institute of Molecular Physics of Polish Academy of Sciences. The Seminars are an international forum for presentation of recent results, unconstrained discussions and initiating of joint studies. This conference series results not only in scientific integration but also in close cooperation and friendship. The bianual event usualy brings together about 100–120 participants in a proportion: approximately one third from the Czech Republic, one third from Poland and the rest from other countries.
