    IPFW 2021

    Welcome Message
    The 6th International Plasma Farming Workshop (IPFW 2021) will be held in the Busan, Korea during
    September 27-30, 2021.

    In recent decades, active studies have begun for applying plasma science and technology to bring about innovations in agriculture and food industries using the unique physical and chemical properties of low temperature plasmas. ‘Plasma Farming’ is the comprehensive plasma application to the entire cycle in agriculture and food from farm to table including cultivation such as plant farm and animal farm, postharvest for preservation and storage with long shelf life, food safety, and even waste treatment.

    We pursue the core values of Plasma Farming: ① high-productive and ② sustainable or eco-friendly farm, ③ safe food without any nutrient loss, and ④ smart technology with ICT, IoT, and AI.

    The IPFW aims to share research results and discuss ideas on science and engineering in physics, chemistry, biology, agriculture, food, environment, and etc. related to Plasma Farming. The IPFW explores challenges and opportunities to create innovative technologies, systems, and platforms based on plasma technology for future agriculture and food industries.


    Topics include the following fields:

    • Overviews of Plasma Agriculture and Food Cycle
    • Plasma Sources and Characterization for Agriculture and Food Cycle
    • Case Studies, Diagnostics, Modeling and Mechanism Studies
    • Application Feasibility and Commercialization Issues

    Welcome all of researchers, businesspersons and officials to IPFW!
