It has a hilly landscape that covers an area of 78,866 square kilometers. Its capital and largest city is Prague, with 1.3 million residents; other major cities include Brno, Ostrava and Pilsen.

Czech Colleagues are very active in the plasma and ion surface engineering community. At Special PSE 2020 Czech speakers present 1 Plenary lecture, 2 Keynote Lectures, 9 oral presentations and 10 poster presentations. Every year Czech Republic send the second most participants to PSE Conferences.


Furthermore, Czech Republic is member in the collective Research Network CORNET.
