XXVIII International Conference on Phenomena in Ionized Gases (ICPIG) was held in Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic, July 15-20, 2007. The ICPIG, a traditional international conference with a remarkably long history, is held every two years and covers nearly all aspects of phenomena in ionized gases. It explores not only the fundamentals of all kinds of plasmas and discharges, but also many applications such as plasma semiconductor processing, surface treatment and thin film technology, light sources and gaseous lasers, environmental protection and pollution control, sterilization and tissue engineering. The 28th ICPIG was organized by the Institute of Plasma Physics, Academy Sciences of the Czech Republic with the participation of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Czech Technical University, and the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics of Charles University. Conference Partners Prague Ltd. was the conference manager.
