SCCS 2022 will be held July 24-29, 2022 in Görlitz, Germany. The conference is hosted by the Center for Advanced Systems Understanding (CASUS) at 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 3-years intervals all over the world.

The venue of the conference is the Cultural Forum Görlitz Synagogue in Görlitz, Germany.


Early-bird registration fee: EUR 300
Full registration fee: EUR 400

We will provide special discounts and additional financial support upon request to further the active participation of young researchers and scientists from less developed countries.


SCCS 2022 will cover the following topics:

  • Dense and Astrophysical Plasmas
  • Plasmas in Condensed Matter
  • Confined and Mesoscopic Coulomb Systems
  • High-energy Density Plasmas in the Laboratory
  • Classical Charged Systems
  • Developments in Theoretical Methods and Numerical Techniques
  • Machine-learning Methods for Coulomb Systems

Keynote and invited talks will be complemented by contributed talks and a poster session.

Conference language is English.
