The 15th Frontiers in Low Temperature Plasma Diagnostics (FLTPD XV) workshop is the continuation of a very successful series that started in 1995 in Les Houches (France) and became an important forum for researchers dealing with low-temperature plasma diagnostics. Recent FLTPD events were held in Bad Honnef, Germany (2019) and, with a one-year delay (forced by Covid-19 restrictions), in Levico Terme, Italy (2022).
The main goal of the workshop is to enable an intensive meeting of experts in low-temperature plasma diagnostics and to present the latest developments in the use of a whole range of diagnostic tools for investigating both the basic properties and various applications of low-temperature plasmas. It also provides a unique opportunity for a new generation of researchers to discuss the current state-of-the-art and future prospects of the field with leading scientists. The program traditionally consists of expert presentations by invited speakers, presentations by selected topical speakers and poster presentations.
FLTPD XV is organized by the Department of Pulsed Plasma Systems of the Institute of Plasma Physics Prague, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic. The event will take place at the Liblice Castle near Prague from April 28.
All participants are expected to present a contribution, either an oral presentation or a poster. We ask all those interested in participating in the workshop to submit an abstract (single A4 page). Please follow the instructions in the abstract templates (Word/LaTeX) carefully, no editing/formatting will be provided. All abstracts must be uploaded in PDF format and by using the abstract submission form. The International Scientific Committee will review all submissions and select best contributions for oral presentations (25-min topical lectures) from the accepted abstracts.
Registration of participants will be possible only after the contribution has been accepted (either for oral or poster presentation). Each submitting author will receive by e-mail the decision of the ISC and a unique registration link allowing to complete the registration by paying the registration fee (bank transfer only).
Please note that due to limited accommodation capacity at the FLTPD 2024 venue, participant registrations will be on a first-come, first-served basis. Therefore, we strongly recommend that you register and pay the fee as soon as possible after your contribution is accepted!
Closer to the start of the meeting, we will ask all registered participants to fill out a simple Google form regarding arrival/departure assistance and other (e.g. accommodation or dietary) preferences.

Liblice Castle is one of the most compact monuments of the Bohemian high Baroque from the school of Italian architect Giovanni Battista Alliprandi. The last aristocratic family to own the castle was the Thun-Hohensteins until 1945, when the castle became the property of the state, which later assigned the castle to the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic. The castle is located in the Central Bohemia region near the capital city of Prague. The key access point for visitors from abroad is Václav Havel Airport Prague (PRG). The driving distance from PRG airport is approx. 62 km (55 min).
The premises of Liblice Castle enable the organization of conferences in the "under one roof" style for approximately 100 participants. There are 20 historical rooms furnished with historical furniture in the main building of the castle and 32 depandance rooms (including 6 family rooms suitable for staying with children) located in the next buildings of the castle furnished with modern furniture. The hotel's facilities include a lobby bar, wine shop, wellness, Czech cuisine, local beer from the unique steam brewery in Lobeč and a large castle garden. The congress facility consist of the Main Conference Hall (max. capacity 100 seats) and the Marble Hall (80/50 theatre/classroom). All FLTPD XV lectures will be held in the Main Conference Hall, while the poster section and sponsor booths will be located in the Marble Hall.

FLTPD workshops serve to meet experimentalists (mostly leading scientists) who use a wide range of diagnostic instrumentation in their labs, such as fast oscilloscopes, lasers, various optical/FTIR/mass spectrometers and components, advanced multi-channel CCD/ICCD detectors or vacuum instrumentation and components. FLTPD thus offers manufacturers and suppliers of relevant instrumentation an interesting opportunity for a targeted presentation of new products. It also allows publishers to reach out and invite potential authors to submit their works to relevant journals.
On behalf of the FLTPD XV Local Organizing Committee, we would like to invite representatives of scientific equipment manufacturers and representatives of journal publishers to participate in sponsoring the upcoming FLTPD 2024 event. We offer two options for conference sponsors: on-site (exhibition booth + marketing materials/tools distributed by FLTPD organizers) and virtual (marketing materials/tools distributed by FLTPD organizers). All sponsoring organizations will be recognized as FLTPD 2024 sponsors.
