CESPC-7 – The Seventh Central European Symposium on Plasma Chemistry


CESPC is a biannual International Symposium, supported by the Central European Initiative (CEI – and attended by scientists from all over the world. Previous editions were held in Poland (Gdansk, 2006), Czech Rebublic (Brno, 2008), Ukraine (Kyiev, 2009), Serbia (Zlatibor, 2011), Hungary (Balatonalmadi, 2013) and Italy (Bressanone, 2015).

The conference topics include 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, food and agriculture plasma technologies. CESPC-7 intends to provide 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 provides excellent opportunities for both formal presentations and informal discussions.


This year symposium brings together over hundred participants from 24 European and world countries. Scientific program consists of 10 invited lectures by renowned world scientists, 32 oral presentations and 51 poster presentations.


In addition to CEI Cooperation Fund support by Ministry of Science and Education of Republic of Croatia is acknowledged.

CEI – Central European Initiative

The Central European Initiative (CEI), founded in Budapest on 11 November 1989, is a regional intergovernmental forum committed to supporting European integration through cooperation between and among its Member States and with the European Union (EU), other interested public institutions or private and non-governmental organizations (NGOs), as well as international and regional organizations. In order to offer a solid contribution to European integration, the CEI combines multilateral diplomacy and project management, both as donor and recipient. Its institutional and geographical position enables the CEI to act as a bridge between European macro-regions.


10 EU MS: Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia. 8 non-EU MS: Albania, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, Serbia, Ukraine.


Plasma chemistry – interdisciplinary research field which deals with chemical processes in plasmas. By plasma we understood partially ionized gas which consist of neutral molecules and atoms together with electrically charged particles such as electrons and ions. These are non-equilibrium plasmas in which electron temperatures are much higher from temperatures of ions and neutrals at thermodynamical temperatures. In such conditions collisions of electrons with neutrals produces vibrational and electronic states at high energies. In this way otherwise in nature non-existing chemical reactions are initiated. As electrons are easily energized by electrical fields created in discharges or by laser field, efficient mechanisms driven by electricity from renewed and sustainable resources is obtained. This is a base for new economically important technologies.


Institut za fiziku, Zagreb –is dedicated to perform high quality basic research in physics as a prerequisite for the process of technology and knowledge transfer so as to give a notable, sustainable and socially responsible contribution to the development of Croatia, the region and EU. Research in the field of plasma chemistry is present at IF from the time of its foundation in 1960.
