International Symposium on Non-Thermal/Thermal Plasma Pollution Control Technology & Sustainable Energy

ISNTP-8 Camaret


Symposium program available

Next symposium edition 2014 to be held in Dalian, China

General Information

The eighth International Symposium on Non-Thermal Plasma Technology (ISNTP-8) will be held in France, from the 25th to the 29th of June 2012. The chosen location for the symposium is Camaret, a seaport at the extreme west coast of French region of Brittany.
The ISNTP is currently a biannual conference which started in the UK in 1992. Editions were held in Brazil 1997, Korea 2001, USA 2004, France 2006, Taiwan 2008 and Canada 2010. 
Since the first edition, a wide range of environmental applications using non-thermal and thermal plasma technologies was covered: flue gas treatment, water treatment, solid and liquid waste treatments, and more recently fuel reforming and plasma assisted combustion. Emerging topics such as surface bio-decontamination and medical applications appeared in the 2004 edition in USA. Besides applications, fundamentals in discharge physics and plasma chemistry are also considered.
This symposium will be dedicated to the memory of Professor J. S. Chang, who passed away in February 2011. Professor J. S. Chang was a major scientist in the field of non-thermal plasma physics and applications. He was also a very active member of the ISNTP International Committee.
Contributions will be presented in oral, panel, round table and poster sessions. The official language of the symposium is English.

Conference Site and Accommodation

  • Camaret-sur-Mer is a small fishing village at the westernmost tip of Brittany, France. The locale is appropriately called Finistère: end of the earth. The Crozon peninsula, where Camaret is situated, geologically looks like a sandstone anchor thrust into the sea. The village itself used to be a very active fishing port (langouste and lobster). Today, Camaret has become a pleasant tourist resort. The village itself is small (although it would take a while to visit all its restaurants), but the peninsula offers a beautiful variety of sights - rugged granite on its southern shores, greenery in the north, and villages which each have their own character and atmosphere.
