Plenary & Invited Speakers

We thank Plenary and Invited Speakers for having accepted the invitation of the BoD and of the IOC. In the line of a tradition started with ISPC 20, papers written by the plenary and invited lecturers at ISPC24 will be published in a special issue of Plasma Chemistry and Plasma Processing (http://www.springer.com/chemistry/inorganic+chemistry/journal/11090), one of the leading journals in the field (listed by ISI and Scopus; its current Impact Factor is 2.658). All papers will be subject to the usual refereeing process for the journal.
