Over 100 scientists gathered in Sveti Martin na Muri, Croatia on 3-7 September, at the International scientific symposium on plasma chemistry (CESPC).  

The conference organised by the Institute of Physics in Zagreb tackled topics such as fundamental problems, modelling and diagnostics, new materials, energy technologies, environmental protection, bio and medical plasma technologies, surface processes, nanostructured materials, and as the first time at CESPC, emerging food and agriculture plasma technologies.
 
The participants from 24 European and world countries attended the scientific programme with 10 lectures held by renowned world scientists, 31 oral presentations and 51 poster presentations. One third of the participants of this year’s CESPC were students. This is very promising for development in research of plasma chemistry.
 
CESPC-7 provided an interactive platform for researchers from different backgrounds, (chemistry, physics, engineering, material sciences, biology, medicine, food technology) to meet and develop new ideas in the widely interdisciplinary plasma chemistry field. The four-day format of the symposium gave participants the chance to deliver formal presentations and take part in informal discussions.
 
CESPC is a biannual International Symposium attended by scientists from all over the world. Previous editions were held in Poland (Gdansk, 2006), Czech Republic (Brno, 2008), Ukraine (Kyiev, 2009), Serbia (Zlatibor, 2011), Hungary (Balatonalmadi, 2013) and Italy (Bressanone, 2015).
 
This event was co-funded by the CEI Cooperation Fund.
