APWC2017 7th Asia-Pacific Winter Conference on Plasma Spectrochemistry

The organizers of the 7th Asia-Pacific Winter Conference on Plasma Spectrochemistry (APWC) cordially invite you to participate in this event of the spectrochemical world, to be held in Matsue, Japan. Stimulated by the ceaseless growth in popularity of plasma sources for atomization and excitation in atomic spectroscopy and ionization in mass spectrometry, and urgent need to discuss recent developments of plasma in spectrochemical analysis, this conference is organized. Besides it will bring together international scientists experienced in theory, instrumentation and applications to discuss and promote progresses in the field. The conference will consist of plenary and parallel sessions, poster presentation, and instruments exhibition. World-famous scientists will be invited to give plenary and keynote lectures at the conference. Matsue-city is located about 600 km west of Tokyo. Traveling time by air, from Tokyo International Airport (Haneda), is about 1 1/2 hours. Matsue-city is old historical city, and we can enjoy traditional countryside of Japan.
