The 5th International Conference on Plasma Medicine (ICPM5)

May 18-23, 2014 – Nara, Japan

Information on the Conference may be found here.

The ICPM is considered to be one of the few major international conferences that specializes in plasma medicine, expecting about 400 participants, including many medical professionals as well as plasma scientists and engineers, this time at Nara.

The scope of ICPM is also wider than just application of plasma technologies to medicine and encompasses both basic plasma science (such as physics of atmospheric-pressure plasma and discharge in liquid) and applied plasma sciences associated with biology, agriculture, and pharmacy in addition to medicine.
