21st ISPC will take place in Cairns, Australia on August 4-9, 2013 (PDF).
The 20th International Symposium on Plasma Chemistry was held in Philadelphia USA at Loews Hotel July 24 - 29, 2011. ISPC is a bi-annual international conference with topics encompassing the whole area of plasma chemistry and processing science. The aim of the symposium is to present the recent progress in plasma chemistry and its applications.
The symposium was organized to include plenary lectures, invited and contributed oral presentations, poster sessions, and a special session on Plasma Biology and Medicine. The whole area of plasma processing from fundamentals to applications was covered. The official language of the symposium is English.
