12th Frontiers in Low Temperature Plasma Diagnostics
23-27 April 2017, Zlatibor, Serbia

Scientific program

The scientific program of FLTPD will start on the morning of Monday the 24th and will finish on Thursday the 27th at noon. The workshop and poster sessions will take place in the morning and late afternoon/evening. Following the tradition of FLTPD meetings, all afternoons will be free for scientific exchange and discussions.
The program consists of 10 invited lectures (45 min), and 16 topical talks (25 min).
