Conferences History

      The Panhellenic Conferences on Solid State Physics (PCSSP) series counts nowdays a history of more than 25 years. The first Conference of this kind was carried out in Thessaloniki and was organized by the Physicists Association for Research and Applications in 1982. After a three years brake and stepping to the next station at Ioannina in 1986, the PCSSP series are hosted regularly on an annual basis in different places of Greece and Cyprus, where are organized by the local University Departments, Polytechnic Schools or National Research Centers which cover the scientific subject of Solid State Physics, while from 2003 and beyond the Conferences’ title has been altered to include the wider area of Materials Science.
     This Conference series has established for many years one of the best opportunities for meeting, exchange of opinions and presentation of the important, as it has been proven by the quality of the presentations, work of experienced as well as new Greek scientists who are working in Greece or abroad in the fields of Solid State Physics and Materials Science. The last years, after the establishment of English as the formal language for all presentations there is an increasing interest for participation from non-Greek speaking scientists. This year the 26th Panhellenic Conference on Solid State Physics and Materials Science will be carried out in Ioannina, where it is organized from 26 to 29 September by the Departments of Physics and Materials Science Engineering at the Conference Center ‘Carolos Papoulias’ of the University of Ioannina.
