The workshop is organized by the Institute of Physics of the Faculty of Philosophy and Science of the Silesian University in Opava, Czech Republic. The Silesian University belongs among the youngest universities in the Czech Republic. Its Institute of Physics represents a significant part of the University‘s Faculty of Philosophy and Science offering a wide range of prestigious study programmes in the area of applied and theoretical physics.


Situated on the banks of the Opava river Opava is a lovely town that has a rich history and a significant cultural background.
