The idea of regular scientific meetings of physicist involved in studies of ferroelectrics in Poland and Czechoslovakia was born in the discussion between Bożena Hilczer and Jan Fousek and followed inevitability from the success of first such event in Błażejewko in 1979. The Seminar was organized by collaborating scientists from the Ferroelectric Lab of the Institute of Molecular Physics Polish Academy of Sciences and Dielectric Department of the Institute of Physics of Czechoslovak Academy of Sciences.

We decided to organize Seminars on Structural and Ferroelectric Phase Transitions, by turn, in Poland and in Czechoslovakia (now Czech Republic) to intensify the cooperation between the scientist of neighboring countries. We used to invite also our colleagues from other countries who we were collaborating with. The Seminars are the forum of presentation of recent results, unconstrained discussions and initiating of common studies. Lectures on general physics are also a custom of these meetings. The Seminars result not only in scientific integration but also in close friendship.
