The Workshop aims in promoting and strengthening existing collaboration between physicists working in the field of condensed matter physics. During the Workshop recent studies performed in the frames of INTAS projects will be reported and discussed with the participation of leading scientists from different countries.

The programme will include the following topics:
  soft condensed matter (ionic and molecular liquids, disordered systems, polymers);
  critical phenomena;
  solid state physics (ferromagnets, ferroellectrics, semiconductors, hydrogen bonded systems, high -Tc superconductors);
  plasma physics.
