Scope of the SPSM symposium

Aiming to be an interdisciplinary symposium, this symposium has originated from the "Japanese Symposium on Plasma Chemistry" since1988 to celebrate the 8th International Symposium on Plasma Chemistry (ISPC8) held in Tokyo, Japan, in 1987. Moreover, since 1993, the symposium's name has been changed to "Symposium on Plasma Science for Materials" to expand and activate the international interdisciplinary field in both basic science and practical applications based on Materials Science. We welcome various presentations to explore a new frontier of Plasma Materials Science. Proceedings are to be published in a special issue of an English Journal.
