2. Transporting, optical, and thermodynamic properties of plasma; plasma dynamics in electromagnetic fields of various configurations, plasma diagnostics

3. Interaction of concentrated energy fluxes with a surface
(modification of surface properties of materials and coatings by electromagnetic radiation, cathode and ion beams; plasma treatment of materials; plasma deposition of coatings)

4. Plasma in nanotechnology
(synthesis of nanoscale structures and fullerenes; formation of surface structures)

5. Plasma applications
(in medicine and biology, in engineering industry, microelectronics, plasma chemistry, metallurgy, ecology, and in spectrochemical analysis)

6. Non-ideal and dusty plasma, clusters


The Conference scientific program will include plenary (40 min), invited (30 min) and sectional reports (20 min), poster presentations and discussions.
