Second announcement
PNP 13 — Chernogolovka, September 13 – 18, 2009

Dear Colleagues,

It is pleasure to invite you to participate in the: 13th International Conference on the Physics of Non-Ideal Plasmas — PNP 13 — to be held at the Institute of Problems of Chemical Physics, Russian Academy of Sciences (http://www.icp.ac.ru/eng), Chernogolovka, Moscow region, Pr. Semenova 1, Russia, on September 13 – 18, 2009. The Conference continues a traditional series of meetings devoted to new theoretical and experimental results on the physics of dense non-ideal plasmas: Martzlow-Garwitz; 1980; Wustrow, 1982; Biesenthal, 1984; Greifswald, 1986; Wustrow, 1988; Gosen, 1991; Markgrafenheide, 1993; Binz, 1995; Rostock, 1998; Greifswald, 2000; Valencia, 2003; Darmstadt, 2006.

There will be invited and topical talks; a poster session is planned as well. In addition, we expect your suggestions on the organization of special sessions.

Social programme and guided tours will be organized for interested persons. More information will be available later.

We strongly recommend that you attend this symposium and present your new excellent research results.

We are looking forward to seeing you at the PNP13.
