The 2014 Winter Conference on Plasma Spectrochemistry, eighteenth in a series of biennial meetings sponsored by the ICP Information Newsletter, features developments in plasma spectrochemical analysis by inductively coupled plasma (ICP), dc plasma (DCP), microwave plasma (MIP), glow discharge (GDL, HCL), and laser sources.

The continued growth in popularity of plasma sources for atomization and excitation in atomic spectroscopy and ionization in mass spectrometry and the need to discuss recent developments of these discharges in spectrochemical analysis stimulated the organization of this meeting. The Conference will bring together international scientists experienced in applications, instrumentation, and theory in an informal setting to examine recent progress in the field.

Approximately 600 participants from 30 countries are expected to attend.
