International Conference on Plasma Science and Applications (ICPSA) 2016

About the Conference

Following the last eight successful workshops/conferences that were held in Malaysia (2008), Singapore (2009), P.R. China (2010), Iran (2011), Thailand (2012), Singapore (2013), Nepal (2014) and Iran (2015) and the ninth in the series Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) in collaboration with Nilai University and AAAPT, is set to hold the 9th International Conference on Plasma Science and Applications (ICPSA 2016) from 28th –30th November 2016. The 3-day conference will be held at the (Langkawi Lagoon Resort) at the palatial coastal area of Langkawi Island, best known for its fabulous nature parks, deep cruising havens and appealing mountains scenery.


ICPSA 2016 is continuation of the annual meetings organized by AAAPT (Asian African Association for Plasma Training) and hosted by one of its member institutes in different Afro-Asian countries and welcomes plasma scientists from around the globe. It is an excellent platform for early career researchers to present their work and share their ideas with world’s renowned plasma scientists.

Numerous Plenary and invited talks by more globally renowned Plasma scientists will be featured during the conference followed by interactive sessions to bolster the confidence of young scientists and researchers through scientific discussions and expert opinion on their research.





ICPSA2016 welcomes fundamental and industrial research on highly interesting aspects of

• Atmospheric Non-Equilibrium Plasmas e.g. DBD plasmas
• High Density Pinch Plasmas e.g. DPF, Z-Pinch plasmas
