Welcome to AEPSE2021
As the Conference Chairman, I would like to cordially invite you to the 13th Asian-European International Conference on Plasma Surface Engineering (AEPSE 2021), which will be held in Busan Metropolitan City, Republic of Korea, from 27 to 30 September 2021. The AEPSE 2021 is jointly organized by Asian Joint Committee for Applied Plasma Science and Engineering (AJC-APSE) and The Korean Institute of Surface Engineering (KISE) in collaboration with European Joint Committee on Plasma and Ion Surface Engineering (EJC/PISE).
Since the first AEPSE conference held in 1997 in Seoul, Korea, the AEPSE conference has attracted expanding interests as one of the globally nominated open forum for scientists and engineers in Asia and Europe as well as other countries in the field of plasma science and engineering and plasma technology. The major topics in AEPSE 2021 will include Fundamental for plasmas, films and coatings, Plasmas, ion sources and processes, Functional films and processes for microelectronics, optoelectronics and IoT electronics, Advanced surface engineering, Green energy and environment, Bio, medicine, agriculture and life science, Industrial technology and new applications etc.
Busan is located on the southeastern tip of the Korean peninsula and is the second largest city in Korea. The natural environment of Busan is a harmonious relationship of mountains, rivers and sea. Its geography includes a coastline featuring superb beaches and scenic cliffs, mountains which provide excellent hiking and extraordinary views with hot springs scattered throughout the city. The city's natural endowments and rich history have resulted in Busan's increasing reputation as a world class city for tourism and culture, and it is also becoming renowned as a hot spot destination for international conventions. Busan is the ideal surrounding to meet and discuss equally intriguing plasma physics, plasma chemistry, and their applications, in a relaxed atmosphere, enjoying the high-quality scientific program of AEPSE 2021.
I hope to see you at the conference.
