Welcome to SCCS 2022

SCCS 2022 will be held July 24-29, 2022 in Görlitz, Germany. The conference is hosted by the Center for Advanced Systems Understanding, Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf.

Strongly Coupled Coulomb Systems (SCCS) is a major series of international conferences for scientists drawn from the Plasma Physics, Astrophysics, and Condensed Matter Physics communities.

The purpose of the SCCS conferences is to provide a regular international forum for the presentation and discussion of research achievements and ideas relating to a variety of plasma, liquid, and condensed matter systems that are dominated by strong Coulomb interactions between their constituents. Each meeting has seen an evolution of topics that have followed in the steps of new discoveries and new methods. In recent years the field has seen the emergence of new experimental tools and access to new strongly coupled conditions. SCCS conferences are generally held at three-year intervals all over the world.

SCCS Condemns the Russian Invasion of Ukraine

The International SCCS Conference series expresses extreme outrage and disgust against the full-scale Russian invasion of the second-largest country in Europe, Ukraine, and the barbaric violence being inflicted every day in Ukraine on civilians, including children.

The horrific experiences in Europe in the 20th century were supposed to have taught us all an indelible lesson, and the Russian Federation ratified the European Convention on Human Rights in 1998; Article 2 Right to life: 1. Everyone’s right to life shall be protected by law.  We call upon Russia to cease hostilities in Ukraine immediately and to resolve differences using peaceful, civilised methods.  War between nations can never again be an acceptable part of Europe.

The SCCS series of Conferences stands for the promotion of international science and free international scientific exchange.  The SCCS community is made up of scientists from all over the world.  Fine Russian scientists have played a very important part in the community from the start, their original contributions enriching us all.  All the activities of our community rely on peace and the freedom of thought and action.  This invasion by the Russian state stands crassly against these ideals.
