Overview

The proceedings of the Seventh Workshop on the Physics of Dusty of Plasmas contains a collection of papers that provide a "snapshot" of this rapidly expanding field and is perhaps the fastest growing area of plasma physics studies with a surprisingly wide range of applications. At this workshop, over fifty participants presented theoretical and experimental investigations of dust charging, waves and instabilities, laboratory and industrial plasmas, strongly coupled systems, astrophysical, space, and atmospheric plasmas.
