The scientific programme will include invited lectures, oral and poster presentations, and discussions on the following topics:

1. Electrical and optical discharges, elementary and near-electrode processes
(corona, streamer, spark, barrier, surface, glow, high-frequency, arc, and optical discharges; discharges in liquids; microplasma discharges and plasma jets)

2. Transport, optical, and thermodynamic properties of plasma
(plasma dynamics, heating mechanisms, plasma diagnostics)

3. Generation and interaction of concentrated energy fluxes with a surface
(plasma accelerators; electron and ion beam sources; modification of properties of materials and coatings by electromagnetic radiation, and electron or ion beams; reactions on a surface; laser and plasma treatment of materials; plasma deposition of coatings)

4. Non-ideal and dusty plasmas

5. Plasma applications
(synthesis of nanoscale structures, nanotubes, and fullerenes; plasma light sources; plasma medicine and plasma biology; plasma in engineering industry, micro- and nanoelectronics, chemistry, metallurgy, ecology, in spectrochemical analysis, etc.)

School for Young Scientists
Within the framework of the Conference programme, the school for young scientists (under 30 years) will be organized to offer a series of lectures on priority directions in plasma physics and plasma technologies.


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

The Conference halls (located in buildings of both the Presidium of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus and the Institute of Physics, NAS of Belarus) will be equipped with overhead projectors and video-beamers for computer presentation. Poster session halls will be furnished with the 1.5x1.0 m2 poster panels.


Tentatively, daily room charges depending on the comfort level will range from $50 to $200. Rooms at Minsk hotels can be reserved for the Conference participants.
