On behalf of the International Plasma Chemistry Society (IPCS), we welcome everyone to the 21st International Symposium on Plasma Chemistry which will be held from the 4th to the 9th of August 2013 in Cairns, Australia.
The Australian Organising Committee is pleased to hold the symposium in one of the most interesting towns in Australia. ISPC 21 will be held at the excellent Cairns Convention Centre which is only a ten minute drive from the Cairns International Airport and is renowned for its unique environmental design. Cairns is situated in Tropical North Queensland and is the gateway to both the Great Barrier Reef and ancient tropical rainforests. It is a favourite holiday and conference destination for overseas visitors and Australians alike. We are holding the symposium in the Australian winter but have no fear! The average daytime air temperature is 24 degrees Celsius with low humidity and clear blue skies. Because the latitude is within the tropic of Capricorn, the water temperature is also a warm 24 degrees Celsius, perfect for swimming and snorkeling.
The ISPC has gained popularity over the past few years and now represents scientists from all the major continents of the world. Its breadth of subject matter has now expanded and we will be having a number of sessions on the medical uses of plasmas and the physics underlying the many different types of atmospheric plasmas that are used.
All of us look forward to welcoming you to ISPC 21 in Australia!
Rod Boswell and Tony Murphy
