The Analytical Section of the Norwegian Chemical Society invites scientists and users of science to this 9th Nordic Conference on Plasma Spectrochemistry. We sincerely hope that you will respond positively to this invitation and call for papers. Please inform your colleagues about this opportunity to share and discuss their recent experiences and to be scientifically updated through a number of short courses given by international leading specialists in typical Norwegian informal surroundings. We look forward to your attendance at and participation in this scientific event.
By contrast to other plasma spectrochemistry meetings, the FREE short courses (2 hours duration) will be offered to all participants during the four day meeting which may be very attractive to participants to learn about and to be updated on plasma spectrochemistry. We are planning to organise 14 short courses, two or three in parallel each day , as part of the conference. This concept is meant to stimulate Nordic users of plasma based techniques to learn more about theoretical and practical issues as well as obtain specialists recommendations for methods improvements. Thus, these short courses are also a unique opportunity for laboratory engineers to be updated.
